First, the deal. A 1.33 gallon container with spray handle or Ortho Home Defense Max is on sale at The Home Depot for just $4.88! This stuff is normally around $10! That is a heck of a price for an amount that will surely last you for at least a year!
What is it? It's a great general insect killer.
How do we feel about it?
This is how:
Ortho Home Defense Max is the best insect killer we have tried. The immensely wide range of bug types that it kills is why we like it. I'd rather not have 7 different insecticides for all of the bugs that show up around our house. This stuff takes care of pretty much all of them. Even Black Widows! At first, I didn't believe that it would take care of Black Widows, but I saw it with my own eyes!
The great thing about Home Defense is that is forms a border that it says lasts for about 3 months. This seems to work great. We spray the outside of our windows and doors and bugs don't seem to get through. It also kills a lot of bugs on contact, if you're looking for a more direct approach.
One thing I would recommend is getting an automatic sprayer or something. Trying to spray around your entire house with the squeeze handle can get tiresome. It's doable, but can be a pain.
Anyway, at less than $5 for a 2-3 year supply, this is definitely something to think about! The offer is on store only.
