When I purchased my house, the former home owners had a standing contract with a national exterminator group to prevent bug infestation, but I opted for something a little less expensive. I went to a lawn and garden store and talked to the experts there about what type of insecticides would best guard my home. They recommended Ortho Home Defense Max and I’ll never use anything else. It works, it’s not too expensive, and I can treat my house in minutes.
Ortho Home Defense Max is used indoors or out to kill roaches, fleas, mites, centipedes, flies, ants, mosquitoes , scorpions, silverfish and other home invaders. Spiders were the problem in my own home. Living in North Carolina, where the brown recluse spider is prevalent, I worried about the many spider webs which kept reappearing. I took the webs down but would be shocked to see them back within the month. It seemed I never stopped knocking down spider webs.
I used the Ortho Home Defense Max around my home, starting with the top perimeter of the room, going down each corner, around windows, and finally, around the baseboards. I treated each room then treated the outside perimeter of the house. I paid special attention to the areas under the fridge, stove, and cabinets.
The Ortho came in a gallon size for about $7 and after treating my entire home, I still had over half left for a future treatment. Well, let me tell you that the money was well spent, since I’ve had no problems from spiders since. It’s a rare occasion that I see a spider web now, and it’s been 3 months since I treated my house. The manufacturer recommends that the house be retreated once each season, so a gallon of Ortho goes quite a long ways.
The Ortho bug treatment comes with a sprayer and hose that make it easy to use. Some trigger spray-type bug treatments can become very tedious and you end up with an aching hand, but the Ortho sprayer prevents this.
People and pets can enter a treated room after the spray has dried. Before using the product make sure there are no exposed foods and that includes pet food and water. Cover appliances like toasters and be sure to wash any cooking utensils after using the product.
Ortho Home Defense Max has saved me hundreds of dollars on monthly bug treatments for my home, and I don’t have to worry about having exterminators crawling all over every inch of my house. I’m sold on their product and will use it each season to keep my house bug-free. Ortho has an entire line of bug defense products for your garden and home at a reasonable price. You’ll be glad you tried it.
