Doesn't Work

Does not work, it does not kill on contact or at all. I have not seen any dead bugs from using this product if anything I see more then before. This product was the biggest waste of money. Very disappointed. And the auto trigger is good but it's not the best at going where you really want it to if there is a little distance like the molding on top of the wall.

Auto trigger won't fit for different size bottle

We bought the 30oz bottle to try out and we like the product. HOWEVER, when we decided to buy a bigger refill bottle, the trigger won't fit anymore. I wish there is a warning label or something to let me know that you need to use the trigger to the SAME size bottle. Now I end up we a useless auto trigger and a full gallon of bug spray that I has no trigger for it.

Best product ever!

I wanted something which would keep the bugs away from my door and porch light! There are many bugs where I live and some are venomous (scorpions, spiders, wasps and stinging ants). Not to mention all the flies and mosquitos! So I bought the smaller bottle with the battery operated sprayer and a large refill bottle as well. I applied it around my porch and light area as well as other areas where I had seen activity. My neighbors have cockroaches and I don't want those coming my way so I applied a 'line' of it between their domicile and mine. So far it has nuked all the bugs, including a couple scorpions and several cockroaches! It was a mass kill around my porch light! It seems to keep killing for quite a while after initial application as well (4 weeks). Very satisfied!

We paid good money for this product and it was more like I didn't even put the product down the bugs were just as bad if I didn't spray anything@ all, this is crazy. 5 yrs ago when we got rid of them this similar product worked. Now it's like we're just feeding them with the products now a days. Very disappointed with the products now a days.

Bought this spray for a new apartment hoping to deter any already present guests a.k.a. bugs. Sprayed the entire apartment with the auto trigger about three days ago. Come home from the gym today to find a bug lingering in my kitchen. Very disappointed in the product

I spray along all the corners in the garage, and all over the basement. I usually use a couple of bottles. Very east to apply. I find dead bugs of all types all over the garage floor. I apply twice a year. Never had a bug in the house.

this product is not effective. I sprayed a roach and it just sat there then crawled away. sprayed it again still it was moving away, finally I smashed it . I bought this because it had no odor, but it is not as effective as the other smelling product.

I did not purchase the one with the sprayer, because I didn't see a reason to pay the additional $4 for a spray nozzle when I have many at home. So buy the refill pop the cap off and pour in your own marked spray bottle (keep safe and away from animals and kids obviously). It is odorless which is a plus and kills the pest on impact. While treating the areas I prefer the streamline spray because it would be messy otherwise.

This product actually does what it is intended to do. I wish a wider output nozzle was available. The constant action when trigger is pulled is great but the stream it shoots is to specific. An adjustable nozzle which provides a choice between a wide spray and a narrow stream would be optimal.

have no idea if it works because "auto Trigger" is junk

Would love to be able to review this product BUT, since the auto trigger won't work on on the 64 ounce bottle kinda hard to review something that the company sells that is junk. Just so you know, I worked for NASA as an Mechnical Technician and can make most anything work. I took the sprayer apart and primed the pump. but it still will not get enough suction to pull the liquid thru the hose to the sprayer. this thing MIGHT work if it were screwed directly to the top of the bottle as shown in the smaller bottle size, but since I had purchased the 64 ounce bottle, it requires a hose. My suggestion is don't buy this product unless you have a spray bottle to pour it into that doesn't require batteries to operate.

I had bought the auto sprayer in the past and found that I could by a refill, and did. But the sprayer is just not taking any liquid from the refill. I like Raid products, but I'll just buy individual bottles in the future without the auto sprayer.

This product was awful. I had an issue with spiders and roaches and this product says to create a barrier agains a list of insects. It did not keep them out nor kill them. I literally sprayed a spider with this and it did not even affect it. The auto-trigger was awful, wouldn't spray at times and was very messy. I am a very disappointed customer!

While the sprayer operated correctly it was wonderful, now, for some reason, the sprayer no longer sprays. The product was effective while it worked and was veery effective, easy to use, a good value. However, now it is taking room up in the cabinet. I am reluctant to toss it, it's more than half full. Will not purchase again and be stuck with 2 half full containers

Bugs on the ceiling

Customer review by brittani

I found this product to work great for the first five days, I sprayed it in cracks, windowsills and along the bottom of the walls. However I walked in to see a spider crawling on my ceiling. I mean are these bugs really that smart to find a way around this product? It must work to some extent but not good enough, it is an ok product.
