The scented Raids DO NOT WORK!!

1

My grandparents had a bad roach infestation. I'd go thru 3 cans a day killing thousands with the unscented Raid. Anywhere I sprayed, even when they were hiding,. They would start dropping out from behind woodwork and any spot that we couldnt see. The smell wasn't the greatest but that stuff works. The good stuff is getting hard to find. It's being replaced by all these scented, waist of money products. I am so confused on how this isn't an issue by all who purchase this. It may kill ants but water also kills ants. Ya gotta take the bad with the good. Bad smells kill great!

A Review of another type of Raid Ant/Roach killer

1

I used the "Lemongrass, Child/pet safe" Roach and ant killer, and let me say I've never been so disappointment with a product in my life. The two times I really needed it was when there was a roach in my room, and despite hitting the roach directly with the spray on multiple occasions, it only seemed to make it fast, now I would forgive it if it was useful for keeping roaches/ants away, however it couldn't even do that either. Overall I'm extremely disappointed in the Lenongrass Raid Ant/Roach killer.

This is a very useful product. I have used it for the ants during the summer seasons. It really works.

An Absolute Must For the City Dweller

I've used Raid for years ever since moving into my first apartment in New York City. While I keep a crumb-less kitchen and keep a clean home, roaches just can't be completely avoided when living in an apartment. I also will add I hate bugs! This spray is effective and works on contact just like the packing says allow my to avoid having to crush any of those nasty roaches!

It really does kill roaches dead

I didn't use this outside in a garden. I used it to kill roaches during a difficult move out of a roach-infested apartment into a new home while attempting to salvage whatever was still fit to use after roaches infested everything I valued. The specific way I used this product was to unpack items that harbored roaches that survived the fumigation I had done beforehand. If they scurried out, I sprayed, and this stuff truly does kill them dead outright, just as commercials show. It's the only thing I have ever seen do this. If you have to take things apart to clean them and see these bugs and spray, you'll get them with this formula. Just be careful of the smell. It might not be so good indoors because of this. I have pets, and had to be sure and use it where they couldn't reach, plus if I handled stuff too soon after using the product, I felt a bit ill. However, it worked and was worth it, and worth every penny to get this and reclaim my stuff from the roaches.

Great Ant Zapper

During the summer we had a pretty bad ant problem, no matter how much I cleaned the little monsters still came back. Well, that was until I tried Raid Ant and Roach spray. I sprayed the area around the sink and around the window sill and never saw the little things again, This bug spray is extremely effective for ants.

Easy to use and effective with no more odor than any other spray

I've tried a number of ant sprays and find this one of the easiest and most effective ones to use.  It is also a good cost bargain.  You can usually find a can of Raid in my upper cabinet ready for use as needed.  I also find I need to keep some extras around as my daughters, who are in their early 20's, find ants in their homes and must have something to "kill the ants RIGHT NOW" and come to my house to grab a can of spray.  Hey, I like to be a helpful mom.

RAID! yes this stuff is the best. i have tried so many products that say kills bugs on contact! HMMM when after 5 hours of them walking around? with raid you can bet as soon as you spray the bugs are laid out on their backs. i love raid. wouldnt use anything elese to get rid of those pesky little pests. i swear by raid 100 percent. i have wrote raid numerous times telling them how great i think raid is. yeah it cost a few cents more then other brands but like the oldsaying is you get what you pay for. i prefer to spend the 50 cents more to know i am going to be bug free. so to all of you out there that havent used raid i suggest you go and get a can and see how well raid works. gaurantee you wont buy nothing elese.

Raid Kills Bugs Dead

4

  Raid pest control products are among the best- known manufactured goods of their type and among the different Raid products, the one that gets the most advertising exposure and the one that most people will recognize instantly is the aerosol spray bottle. And of the spray bottle products, the one most frequently purchased is **Raid Ant & Roach Killer**, a powerful, toxic spray that stops bugs dead in their tracks. **Pest**** Control Commentary:** Raid Ant & Roach Killer is an effective way to kill bugs instantly and to help prevent some of them from returning to your home. I keep a bottle of this under my kitchen sink at all times to kill bugs when I see them and to spray in areas where I think they might be entering my home. This product is powerful and once bugs are sprayed, they croak instantly. There is no escaping the affects of Raid. It knocks the creepy crawlers out cold, with no chance to survive. I use this mostly to control ants but now that I live in a warmer climate, there are other insect problems to deal with. Often, I have walked into the kitchen and discovered a small army of ants walking off with crumbs of bread or other foods, leaving a trail of food as they walk under the refrigerator and down under the floor. I sometimes find other bugs in the house as well, feasting on leftover food or just making a nuisance of themselves. When this happens, all I do is grab my can of Raid and spray them as they walk toward their escape. They are killed instantly and swiftly. Raid can sometimes help keep bugs from returning, but this isn't something you can count on. If ants are entering, say, through a corner of a window due to a loose screen, you can spray around the edge and prevent them from coming back. But in many instances, finding exactly where the bugs are coming and going is not possible. In these instances, Raid Ant & Roach killer has limited use. It will kill the bugs you can see, but it won't do much to stop ants from returning.  Raid Ant & Roach killer is also effective on roaches and many other creatures. Don't let the name of the product fool you- this stuff contains toxic poison that can kill *any* type of bug. In fact, the label recommends using Raid for eliminating spiders, crickets, silverfish, and waterbugs in addition to ants and roaches. But the truth is, any bug that gets sprayed with this product is going to die. Some might gasp for their last breath of fresh air a little longer than others. But they will succumb to the toxic effects of Raid, sooner or later. While Raid is good for killing bugs instantly, there are a few qualities that prevent it from earning a perfect rating. First of all, let's talk about the smell. The smell is pretty awful and it makes me sneeze if I stand too close to where I spray. Even after returning to the area long after spraying, I can strill smell the product and I still catch myself sneezing. I have the red- label can and even though it is supposedly "Outdoor Fresh Scent", it still smells rather nasty- a combination of chemical aromas and a hint of air freshener. It's supposed to be less offensive then the chemicals alone would be, but it still smells bad to me. There is also a "Country Fresh" scent and a "Fragrance Free" variety. I have not tried either one of them but I think the next one I buy will likely be the fragrance free. Based on the aroma of the Outdoor Fresh scent, I would bet that the Country Fresh is equally repulsive. Another disadvantage of Raid Ant & Roach killer is the clean-up that comes afterward. Once you spray, you are left with a heap of dead insects and an awful, chemical aroma. At this point, you get the pleasure of wiping up the pile of dead bugs. It's a nasty job, but it must be done. Some people spray bugs behind large appliances and just leave them there. It makes for less work, but that pile of Raid- coated dead insects isn't going to disappear. You have to give in and clean them up. **Bottom Line:** Ants and other pests inevitably make their way into places they are not welcome. With Raid Ant & Roach spray, these little six and eight- legged creatures don't stand a chance to survive. One spray is all it takes to kill these bugs dead and keep them out of your way. Raid knocks 'em out cold, in a matter of seconds.
