    I have a cousin that lives in South Georgia and she is scared of all bugs. She swore by orthene in her yard and garden for preventive treatment from bugs attacking her crops. She noticed using it she didn’t have the pest issues most people would complain of. She came to visit and we went to a local hardware store and she saw the Ortho and got overly excited. She said this is almost like what I use at home, let’s try it outside your house. Well, that was many moons ago I have been using this product and loving it. It has a pungent smell that dissipates fairly quickly. I suggest you always keep a bottle handy and boarder the outside of your home with it. Keep it close to the foundation to avoid your kids or pets from coming into contact with it.

    I was very skeptical about the effectiveness of this product prior to purchasing it, but it is very worth it if you have a roach problem. I did not purchase this product for ants, but roaches, and I noticed a 80% reduction in roaches squirming around my kitchen after two days of application. After a week, a 95% reduction, with the exception of a few baby roaches here and there. Very pleased with the purchase.

    I have this all around my house from the front of my door to the bedroom and all the windows. Not it DOES NOT stop the ants from coming in but it does kill 99% of them. This is my first time living in a house and on the country side (I hate it) and I get a lot of bugs and spiders (only in the summer) and no matter what I do, what I use they still come but as fast as they come they die just as fast but you will definitely be sweeping up bugs. It does smell funny at first but once you get used to it you don’t smell it at all and I change the areas (clean up and add new coat) once a week.

    The best product on the market so far. Works wonders, if you have roaches despite of keeping a clean house. This is the best product for you. Those roaches will be out of your sight within the first week of using this product, as well as ants. I’m not sure if it kills them, but they are nowhere to be found. I use it every two weeks and just let it sit. Just wear glove and mask when using. It has a strong and strange odor. GET IT NOWWW.

    We had a bad roach and ant problem paid hundreds of dollars for MONTHS (4+) for a professional bug spray company to come and spray to end the problem and they would still be there. Bought this product used it twice and haven’t seen one bug in over a month now. 100% recommend this product.

    It’s a smelly powder. I leave it on to air out for few days then sprinkle it around windows /doors and any trouble areas. I sweep up and reply to pervert bugs especially roaches. I always apply some around the outside of the house .. highly recommend

    This product is magical! I watered a plant and saw a bunch of ants coming out, I didn’t want to spread the product on the soil because I was not sure if it could kill my plant so I put a bit of it on the edges of a plate under the plantpot. In a matter of minutes… no ant! it acts super fast.Cons: it smells like rotten eggs and the smell is strong. I only spread a little bit and I had to take it out of the house. After an hour or so I cleaned the product from the plate and brought the plant inside, no more ants.Next time, I’ll take the plant outside before spreading the product but I’ll continue using it for sure!

    I sprinkled the stuff around my front door and it even killed a baby frog. I was so sadbut that goes to show it does what it says it’s gonna do.It has a smell, but I feel like if the product doesn’t have a smell it won’t work
