Bug killers don't realistically have a shelf life. Like ddt, they'll sit around forever and still kill when sprayed.

I alternate between this and the Beyer Bug Spray (blue bottle). Sometimes, ants die faster with that than this, but this one has lower odor.

...

If you get bored of holding this tiny sprayer to cover a big area outdoors, simply reuse any hose sprayer and mix your own dirt cheap from concentrate.
https://www.amazon.com/Advanced-Carpenter-Termite-Concentrate-32-Ounce/dp/B0001LE30G

Really nice (you know it's strong when pouring out 1oz clears the nose fast!), less odor, less effort, really kills.

You can mix this concentrate for your own spray liquid to use in your own sprayer indoors.

...

Beyer and this spray can be used indoors, but like any insect poison, not good if you breathe it before it dries, not good in high concentrations, not good if you lick what you sprayed ,)

Ideally, you want to stop All insects from invading the house with an outside perimeter spray, then spot room treatment (e.g. Kitchen) as needed. You should hardly need to spray all the rooms indoors.

For the common roach or ant, using the appropriate trap bait is better - less poison spread all over. Instead, they come, eat, die.

E.g. With ants, Terro kills nicely.

...

Be Smart!

Wear mask (preferably carbon filter) and gloves and goggles.
Open All the windows and doors.
Think about the path - you want to go from one end to the entrance.

Once you're done spraying the edges of the rooms, take off goggles, gloves, mask, exit (you can lock the door and any windows you think thieves will enter).

Go away for an hour or so.

Once dry, come back, open everything, vent for ah hour or so.
You shouldn't smell anything once dry.

...

Really recommend a good mask with carbon filter because every time I spray a room with just a regular mask, I can feel the poison work ,)

Probably YMMV. In my case, it was a better deal. $3.97 before tax. $4.21 after tax

this stuff works it really does. i was skeptical at first, but just spray around perimeter and inside edges of garage. youlll start seeing dead bugs of all sorts the following day.

especially if you live in climate where it gets hot and the bugs start trying to find cool places..

It's a pesticide. Poison. I have used it in the house last year and still alive. Though I don't have any pets.

I got the Bifen XTS concentrate and just dilute it. It'll be cheaper in the long run and much more potent. Wear a respirator if you do this tho

I use this stuff in between professional sprayings. It works pretty well for black widows, bark scorpions, and crickets.

I have used home defense for several years, it works well. I also spray it inside windows and near front and rear door that leads to outside the house. Don't spray inside if you have pets though.
