I go back to this same product every time because it works so well. I see that another reviewer mentioned it didn't work for fleas...so far I haven't had to worry about that but I can say that in the Midwest we get the normal run of the mill spiders, ants, earwigs, centipedes, etc. Once I spray with Ortho Home Defense we're bug-less for months. That's saying a lot because I'm one of those people who often leaves my door open. :-D About twice a year I go around the outside and spray: -the line where the exterior walls meet the ground -the complete outline around the doors and windows -cracks -holes where an inlet has been drilled (like for a cable, the ac unit, pipes, hoses, spigots). Then I spray inside around the doors, windows and vents, including the doorway that separates the basement from the main level. I have pets. I make them wait about 30 minutes before I let them into a sprayed area. So far, Ortho has kept my home bug free and there hasn't been any issues with staining or with my pets.

    Comments about SCOTTS COMPANY Ortho Home 1.1 Gallon Home Defense Max Insect Killer (0196810):

    I have used this excellent product for years. The old method of having to prime the wand was hard and annoying and hand-cramping. I actually bought a sprayer two years ago, having to pour the product into the sprayer bottle to make it easier to use. AT LAST!!! A brilliant employee of ORTHO devised a new wand - OPERATED BY BATTERIES!!!! - to spray the product!! Give that employee a week's paid vacation!!! What a difference! So much easier. As for the product: It couldn't be better. Every spring I spray my basement perimeter inside, the perimeter of the foundation outside, and the ceiling under the deck, and the base of the two garage doors, and I never have spiders or ants any more! (My home abuts conservation land so the possibility of insects is 10-fold.) THREE CHEERS FOR THIS WONDERFUL PRODUCT!! THANK YOU ORTHO DEFENSE!!!

        Fantastic product. Please keep making this product. I live on the third floor of a complex and this has saved me in my battle against bugs (mostly ants). It has been fabulous to have a product that I can use indoors that does NOT smell and dries quickly! I also like the wand/spray function. Thank you soo much.

          Completely sprayed the inside and outside of the house prior to moving in. This product lasted about 2 1/2 weeks. Not what we were expecting from the label. Expecially on the inside of the house. Maybe this product is maid for a magical place without they bugs on the label that it says it kills. We have reapply 2 times now still just like when the house is

                Works great and pleanty of spray to treat a normal size house. People are saying the roaches or insects swim right through the spray and survive direct hits and this true, the insects do not die immediately. I you give your house a good tratment and within a few hours the ants will start acting disoriented. With 24 hours there were no biting Carpenter Ants left walking around. A couple flies, miilipedes and potatoe bugs died as well

                  I have been using the product for several years now and I always bragged about it but this bottle does not seem to work. I have a hummingbird feeder on my porch, I have sprayed all around the post top to bottom and the ants are back in a few days. I am now very disappointed with this product now. I am not sure if ortho changed the formula or if it is a bad batch. I will look for a different brand the next time I go to the hardware store. Goodbye ortho products.

                      I tried the smaller spray bottles of this product and it will not kill ants. I spray on them and around them and they just keep marching along. I purchased several bottles in a period of one year thinking that it might be a batch problem but get the same results.

                                          Home Defense really works. I rarely ever see bugs inside the house. I live in a warm humid climate known for bugs and this stuff keeps them outside where they belong. The only issue I have ever had is when the spray handle doesn't work and this is rare. When this happens I have emailed the company and they sent a new one. Over all this is a wonderful product and I highly recommend it as it is easy to use and effective.

I have had a number of different products all claim the same but were very ineffective. I am on my thrid year using this and dont see me switching.

The battery operated sprayer makes it so easy to get the product wherever you want it to go. There is very little odor with this product.

One thing that I use it for is the spiders around the yard and garage. One spray and they are dead. My son and I go around once a month around the house and kill the black widows. The next day we check out how many we got.

I do not use it outside. I use it in my Mother's condo and my daughter uses it in her house. Very happy with this product. Sprayer is easy to use and dependable.
