Style Name: Pack of 1Size: 1 Gallon
I have a friend that owns a pest control business out of state and he recommended this after I asked what consumer available, off the shelf product that I could use throughout and around my home. He recommended Spectracide Bug Stop. I've been using it for 7+ years now (started when it was sold in a clear container). It has no odor and keeps the pests OUT! I spray around the perimeter of my home, making sure that I spray inside all the cracks and crevices outside and along the foundation/brick. Inside, I spray along the baseboards of the entire home including exterior door jams and windows. My home is approximately 1800 square feet and one container covers the entire job. I also use in my garage along the baseboards, in all cracks and in the corners where the walls an ceiling meet to keep spiders away. I recently added an outside storage building and it is also pest free due to Bug Stop. While the effectiveness on the container states 9 months, I reapply every quarter (3 months) since I live in a coastal area that experiences a lot of rain and have had excellent results. I highly recommend this product.

Style Name: Pack of 1Size: 1 Gallon
Mixed experience here in Florida. Initially treated doors sills and window frames for cockroaches/ants trying to enter from outside. Initial success seemed very good. However, subsequent identical treatments seemed less and less effective each time. I suspect the survivors developed resistance very quickly. YMMV.
Also used the outdoors hose-spray Spectracide concentrate for lawn & landscaping areas. Takes some trial and error learning to get spray right, but was very effective with mosquitoes & ants (our main problems). Hard to be scientific, but it seems subsequent monthly treatments have been less and less effective, especially with controlling mosquitoes. 99% effective for weeks the first time, and nowadays the same treatment seems more like 70-80% effective (subjectively). Still better than nothing, but be aware, survivors may develop resistance.
As a pet owner, I agree with other reviewers that the maker has almost no info available, neither on the container nor on the website, as to pet health/safety--no info on long term exposure risks and no real info on acute accidental poisoning.
Also, the 99% ingredients that are marked 'inert' are not listed and remain a mystery. What is it, besides tap water? Are they potentially poisonous? Allergic? When the maker refuses list 99% of the ingredients, the consumer can only wonder why.
5 stars for initial effectiveness, 3 stars for diminishing repeat effectiveness and lack of useful info on potential safety risks & mystery contents.

This is the cheapest and most effective bug spray i have found. When I worked at Lowe's it was a big seller, so I thought I'd give it a try. It killed ticks in the doghouse, spiders in the garage and ants everywhere I see them. The ants NEVER come back when I use this spray. We have saved hundreds of dollars doing our own pest control with Bug Stop and I would recommend it to anyone looking to kill bugs for good.

Style Name: Pack of 1Size: 32 oz.
I mistakenly bought this on a whim after the one I normally use, that begins and ends in an O, ran out. The difference between the two is glaring. Where my usual brand lives up to it's "Home Defense" claim, this Spectracide does nothing it claims to do. In fact after I sprayed an area where I usually see ants, even more came back a couple days later.
It's like they went to get their friends to come share it with. It appears to me they're either immune to this stuff or they actually like it....And if I had ant hearing, I bet I would hear all their little voices happily exclaiming "Let's all cool off under the tasty spray!"...Seriously, they just kept coming back no matter how many times I sprayed with this stuff that I started to believe they were really enjoying it and mocking me.
The smell of this stuff is very strong as well. A few sprays and I found myself coughing that I began to wonder if this is worse for humans than it is for ants...and could this be something the ants actually created themselves in an ironic and evil plot to eradicate us humans?
I'm going back to my O brand where I only have to spray once every 2 months and my home is bug free and with no strong toxic smell filling my lungs.

I've had mixed experience here in Florida. I initially treated doors sills and window frames for cockroaches/ants trying to enter from outside. Initial success seemed very good.
However, subsequent identical treatments seemed less and less effective each time. I suspect the survivors developed resistance very quickly. YMMV.

I also used the outdoors hose-spray Spectracide concentrate format (same stuff in a gallon jug size) for lawn & landscaping areas. Takes some trial and error learning to get spray right, but was very effective with mosquitoes & ants (our main problems).
Hard to be scientific, but it seems subsequent monthly treatments have been less and less effective, especially with controlling mosquitoes. 99% effective for weeks the first time, but nowadays (6 months later) the same monthly treatment seems more like 70-80% effective (subjectively).
Still better than nothing, but be aware, survivors may develop resistance.

As a pet owner, I agree with other reviewers that the maker has almost no info available, neither on the container nor on the website, as to pet health/safety--no info on long term exposure risks and no real info on acute accidental poisoning to dogs or cats.

Also, the 99% ingredients that are marked 'inert' are not listed and remain a mystery. What is it, besides tap water? Are they potentially poisonous? Allergic? When the maker refuses list 99% of the ingredients, the consumer can only wonder why.

At under $4 and free delivery, this is cheaper than WalMart. Great price.

Summary: It works. 5 stars for initial effectiveness, 3 stars for diminishing repeat effectiveness and lack of useful info on 99% mystery contents and lack of safety info for pets. Buy it, it works great initially, but realize you may need to rotate/alternate with other formulas to try to outsmart bugs' resistance over time.

Hope this is helpful as you choose bug sprays. Happy trails, everybody.
