Our Verdict

A simple fix to an irritating problem, Raid’s Ant and Roach Spray is effective and easy to use. Aside from the sporadic comments about issues with the can’s manufacturing and the fact that you have to chase down your insects sometimes, this is a solid bug spray. We give it a 4.5/5.

Our Rating

A trusted household name, Raid has produced another product that has pleased its loyal customers. Easy to use and with the bonus of no bad smelling chemicals, this spray has proven itself to be effective and simple. We give it a 4.8/5.

Our Rating

4.8 Stars

PRO

  • Easy to use and hassle-free.
  • Attracts all common household ants.
  • Sweet taste disguises the poison in the bait.
  • Attacks the entire colony, not just the ants you see.
  • Fast-acting

CON

Our Verdict

These little tubes may not look like much, but the gel gets the job done. With just a few drops of this stuff, ants will be attracted and killed within days. This highly effective product gets a 4.8/5 rating from us.

Our Rating

4.8 Stars

PRO

  • Highly effective formula kills ants along with spiders and roaches.
  • Fast-acting.
  • Long lasting for up to two months.
  • Fog penetrates small and hard to reach places.
  • Fog can be used to bomb entire rooms.
  • Mess and stain free.

CON

  • Can be harmful when inhaled or in contact with the eyes.
  • Very strong odor.

Our Verdict

Raid’s fogger is a great purchase for someone who is tired of their ant problem and just wants a fresh start. The fog will attack an entire room at once, destroying anything that’s living in there. However, it can be a little inconvenient since you should wait several hours before going back in the room. We give this product a 4/5.

Our Rating

4 Stars

PRO

  • Effective spray instantly kills a variety of bugs.
  • Long-lasting formula keeps working for up to 12 months.
  • Battery operated nozzle gives you a continuous stream.
  • Batteries included.
  • Very affordable.
  • Safe around most pets.

CON

  • Surfaces are sticky after being sprayed.
  • Toxic to aquatic creatures.
  • Can cause skin irritation.

Our Verdict

An effective product, we applaud the Max Bug Barrier for its easy-to-use, battery-operated nozzle. The long-lasting barrier provides constant protection against a wide variety of pesky insects. The messiness and irritation factor detract for it a little bit, so we give this product a 4/5.

Our Rating

4 Stars
