Raid Ant & Roach Killer Aerosol
Raid was my savor back in college when I rented an apartment. It would never fail me when I encountered creepy crawlers. I'd spray the parameters and the entrance of my apt once a month because the complex did not provide that service. If I ever saw a bug is was already dead and the ones that weren't were zapped with one or two sprays.
We live in coastal GA and we have roaches. a lot of roaches. When I get one in the house, I usually lose it and grab the Raid. Well, kills on contact is not exactly accurate. I would prefer that it shoot out like the wasp spray does, but it comes out in a mist requiring you to be WAY closer to the roach than I would like and then if you get enough spray on it, it doesn't die right away. It falls and does some cartwheels and tumblesaults and then gets on its back and does the back stroke for a bit and then finally finally dies. I am glad I have it but I do wish it worked better and faster, like wasp spray.
This product has been a must in my household growing up! My parents always had a can on hand, because those ants sure do like to take over homes during the summer to escape the scorching heat! This does the trick every time. The only downside, it smells so strongly, but its to be expected.
Review for: Flying Insect more...
My husband bought this because we had some issues with spiders, ants, fruit flies, and occasionally wasps getting in the house. Works very well, though I am careful to use it since we have kids and pets. Especially worried about our small aquarium when spraying it. It is a good price and the can lasts quite a long time for us.
So I have been doing reviews for an hour now and I stopped to go make myself something to eat while I was in the kitchen I got attacked by a spider (not really I just saw in ran by) so I took care of it and now I'm back making a review on raid to show everyone how raid save my life ps the spider looks smaller now that is shriveled up and dead
I always keep a bottle of this in my house. Living in a tropical state means we get a ton of bugs around our house. So I am constantly spraying this around my house. I usually spray it outside at night and when I wake up their is a ton of dead roaches so it is a very effective product. I am not a huge fan of the scent though. I tend to try and purchase the unscented kind. But I would highly recommend buying this product.
We ALWAYS make sure to keep raid on hand. We don't really have a pest problem except during the summers. Which is normal Bc of the weather. Because of that we keep it handy. It takes a bit of a direct spray to kill the larger ones. But it works. The smell can be a bit strong but I honestly don't mind it.
I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT deal with roaches in ANY CAPACITY. And when those useless cretins decide to invade my home, instead of setting the place on fire, I just spray them with this. It sprays from pretty far away, so I don't have to get close, and instantly disentigrates their will to live. Excellent.
Raid is the best stuff to buy to get rid of pests! I had a big ant infestation a few months ago and this stuff helped so much. Between the spray and the bait the ants started to die and after a week I didn't see anymore and haven't since. This stuff is really easy to use, just follow the directions on the back and make sure to keep your pets out of the places you spray because its very bad for them. Highly recommend!!
