Q: What product do you recommend for use on contact instant pest killer ?? Thank you

submitted by BatGirl - 5 months ago
  • A: We do not offer a product that kills on immediate contact. Ortho Home Defense MAX Indoor & Perimeter Insect Killer is only labelled for the control of those insects listed on label. It does take some time for the insecticide to affect the target insect. This does not have an ingredient that immediately immobilizes the insect upon contact. For harder to kill insects like cockroaches, you will need to wait up to 6 days for them to die.

It does kill on contact but doesn’t necessarily keep the pest away. Noticed more and will be trying something else.

I don’t write reviews often, but this product WORKS! I wish I found it sooner. Had some ants outside my front door that were finding their way into my kitchen, sprayed the outside and haven’t seen any more since. But I’ve also been seeing a lot of spiders around my place lately, so I sprayed a few of the spots where I see them frequently since I had spray leftover and in 2 days I’ve been finding a handful of dead spiders. Big ones. I’m ecstatic not to have them running around anymore! My previous apartment had a spider problem with black widows and other spiders coming inside and I tried everything, pest company came out and sprayed multiple times and nothing worked. I wish I would have found this months ago! It will be my go to from now on!

I live in the desert so every summer I got ants and spiders. I sprayed this outside and it help so much. The only down side that as soon as it rained I found myself back outside spraying outside again. It’s as if water washes it away because after any rain the ants would be back.

Barrier works great. After moving into my condo in March, I heard the complex has bug problems in the summer so I used this to spray around the doors and windows. Yesterday was our first hot day of summer. This morning I woke up to half a dozen dead roaches outside my front door. So thrilled those things didn't make it past the barrier

Twice a year we spray the roof perimeter of RV and mist the under-storage compartments, a few inside closet corners, under sinks, etc., and we never see any spiders or critters of any shape, size or variety. It works.

I've used this product for years. My favorite is "widow walks", when I got out at night with a flashlight on warm nights and spray each black widow around the house and barn. I loathe the container. I buy the gallon refill; they attachment is useless and in the way. I just pour the product into the smaller hand sprayer to use. I would love to find a gallon container without any gadgets, so I could just take off the lid and pour.

Does Not Work on Roaches

1 out of 5 stars
Vallie - 2 years ago
originally posted on Ortho
I heard from the leasing office that my neighbor had roaches. I never saw any roaches in my unit. Then, my neighbors that had roaches moved out. Afterward, I saw one roach in the dishwasher before running it. Then, on a different day one roach in the bathroom. Finally, a few weeks later I spotted one roach in my bedroom. When encountering the roach in my bedroom, I sprayed it very heavily with Ortho Home Defense. It was still able to scurry away after constant spraying. Probably works on ants and lesser bugs. But, don’t buy it to treat roaches.
