Difference Between Raid Flea Killer Fogger & Raid Flea Killer Spray
This article reviews two different Raid products: Flea Killer Fogger and Flea Killer Spray. Foggers and sprays are very different products. Depending on the size and scale of your flea infestation, they can be used individually, or in tandem.
Foggers are used to bug-bomb whole spaces. It can be used for a house, room, boat, car, etc. However, foggers can never be used in the presence of people, pets, or plants. The fog released is filled with harmful toxins—which is why it kills all the pests present in an area. They are a heavy weapon, but effective for large flea infestations
Sprays are used for spot treatments against fleas, on carpets, bedding, furniture, and upholstery. Sprays offer precision against individual areas of infestation. Once dry, the active chemicals are safe for pets, children and adults to be around, but continue to kills fleas on contact for several months. However, flea sprays cannot be used to treat large areas in the same way as flea foggers.
The Bottom Line
The Raid Flea Fogger and Raid Flea Spray are best used in tandem. The spray offers localized coverage, whereas the fogger gets into all the nooks and crannies that are inaccessible by hand. Overall, we give Raid Flea Products our recommendation, if your flea infestation has become out of control.
Though both products use heavy toxins, they are effective for ridding an area of fleas and other pests. Thanks for reading our Raid Flea Fogger and Spray 2018 review.
