To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Not working. First time i sprayed it around my room which is very small it killed small bugs but after week later i see millipede crawling around my room again. you may spray it every couple day so 12 months of effect is just a lie.
Update: I’ve use this spray for a year now and I cannot recommended it enough. I spray it around the area I see bugs I come back a hour later and there are a ton of dead bugs, plus after every spray I stop seeing bugs for months. I had doubts about this spay at first but it really works.
I have been using this for years. I only spray twice a year, spring and fall. It doesn't kill super fast on contact, but slowly. Trust me, they will die after walking through this stuff. It works and doesn't smell after drying at all
I sprayed on ants on the cloth line yesterday and killed ants instantly. The product claims to work for 12 months. This morning I found ant army marching along the lime toward my house again. I am returning the product.
I haven't use it yet, since due to a cold weather and a monthly treatment from an exterminating Company, haven't see any insects. But some people, including in my family, use this product in their homes and recommended it as the one and only they use, and proclaimed to be the best.
Pro: Well packaged, fast shipping, reasonably priced.
Con: This product does not kill centipedes, millipedes, or spiders (my most common critters). When sprayed it seems more an inconvenience than a pesticide. Insects are not poisoned or paralyzed by this product.
We are sorry to hear that the Ortho Home Defense Insect Killer did not work as expected. Please note that it does take some time for the insecticide to affect the target insect. This product does not have an ingredient that immediately immobilizes the insect upon contact. We offer a guarantee that extends to all of our products. If this interests you, we ask that you contact us at 888-270-3714
We do apologize that you did not get the expected performance from Ortho Home Defense MAX Insect Killer for Indoor and Perimeter. Once an area or insect has been sprayed, it will take some time for the insecticide to be effective as it will not immediately control the insect. For harder to kill insects, like cockroaches, it may take up to 6 days to be effective. We want you to be confident in our products, this is why we offer a product guarantee. If you are not satisfied and would like to further discuss this, please contact us at 888-270-3714.
