Shortly after rented a new house I began to notice ants, moths, bees, wasps, and large variety of other insects outside the home. To my horror, I was also seeing at least two or three spiders a day inside the house--EEK!! I think all these critter families had been here a long time and weren't planning on going anywhere because I went to great lengths to try and get rid of them passively. The yard was like a jungle so we tried cutting back all the bushes and digging up weeds but the bugs remained. I even went so far as to purchase an ozone machine after seeing videos about how ozone kills bugs. The problem there is that after the ozone gas has dissipated, the bugs come right back. Then I put out diatomaceous earth but it only worked for a short time. I decided it was time for bug wars and purchased the Ortho Home defense. It took a couple of days for all the ants to get the hint. One colony even relocated to the driveway in an attempt to stay near the house but even they finally decided to hit the road. It has now been about a week since we sprayed and I don't see any insects at all around the house. The best part is that I haven't seen a spider in days and we didn't even spray inside the home. The rain doesn't seem to effect the spray either, we have had 2 days of rain and still no bugs. If you have a serious bug problem and nothing else seems to be working, I would highly recommend this bug spray.

We tried everything to get rid of ants including professional pest control companies. Still ants were everywhere. My brother finally sprayed this around the foundation of the house and in front of every door. Problem solved! Not only that, we stopped seeing roaches and other pests inside the house.

I've read some of the reviews for this product and have to admit I'm somewhat mystified by the negative ones. Perhaps it has something to do with the area of the country where the product is used. This is our fourth year in our 100 year plus old house. It was renovated on the inside before our purchase and we've updated the roof, siding, etc. When we first moved in we had a problem with ants and a few spiders. The ants, oddly enough, also seemed to like the upstairs bathroom. After spraying a couple of different kinds of pest control products, with poor results, I tried the Ortho product. I sprayed both inside and outside of our home - even on the roof outside the upstairs bath. Worked great!! We saw a couple of ants here and there afterward, but the streams of them crawling up the foundation walls were gone. I've sprayed each year since then with the Ortho Home Defense Max. We may see a few ants for a brief period, but I typically apply a little more Ortho if they persist. That has done the trick and keeps the ants out of our cat's food and I can't remember the last time I saw a bug or spider inside the house.

So many of the bad reviews on here for this product state something like this: "I sprayed it on the bug and it didn't die"... This product is NOT like a can of RAID! You don't spray it directly on bugs and wait for the bugs to die. You obviously aren't reading the directions! What you have to do is clean the floors, spray it according to the directions indoors and outdoors around the perimeter of the home. WAIT for the insecticide to DRY. And then, at that point, when bugs cross the insecticide "barrier" and go about their business, then they WILL die! If you spray only one area inside the home, that won't stop bugs from entering from other areas. It's like an invisible "force field" that you are putting up. Spray it around the baseboard and in front of all doors in your home so that there are no "holes" in your force field. Then, spray it around the outside of the home where the home meets the ground. I usually go up a foot and out a foot. That's it. Simple. It's gonna take about 2 hours to do a whole inside and outside of a regular sized home correctly. If you skip a doorway or skip a room, you should expect to not see results because you didn't complete your force field. If you see lots of insects running around with the first couple of days after a proper application, that's because they are trying to relocate before they die off. If you see your population decrease, but there is still some population left a few months later, that's because the babies hatched. Just keep using this once ever 3-4 months until you have the problem under control, then you'll only need to use it once a year. I've had great success in three different homes with a literal ARMY of ants and cockroaches. Once I used this stuff they were gone. I've also gotten rid of black widows and other spidery pests. This stuff is great! There is a tiny itsy bitsy hint of an odor when first applying it - but it goes away within a couple of hours.

This is an amazing product. Better than any other product for cockroaches on the market. Kills it within a few minutes. Once sprayed as directed, the first time I used it, I had NO cockroaches for nine months. Then imoved to another apt with ,unknowingly to me, had the same type of infestation. They were in the fridge that was there, the microwave, everywhere. After I sprayed, I saw one the next day, then several babies, then none for 10 months! They just started coming back, so I bought some more. I SATURATE, maybe more than the directions say. I also take out all the drawers and spray behind them pipes that go into walls, under the stove and on walls. Any cracks between walls and appliances, I spray everywhere! Couldn't live without it!
