Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Buggies Here! I spray Home Pest Plus along evey baseboard inside the house -- both upstairs and downstairs -- as well as the doorways and all along the foundation outside. I've done this the past several years, early spring and early fall. Not onLy have there been NO creepy-crawlies inside my house. In fact, I have copies from the NSA of texts buggies have sent their buddies warning them to stay away from my house. (All true...except the last sentence.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like it claims to! I always keep this Indoor/Outdoor Insect Killer on hand. I live in the deep south on 10 acres of mostly wooded acreage. We have more than our fair share of insects out here and I like using this product because I can spray it inside or out, and it also kills germs. I cannot stand having any flying insects in my house but I am especially afraid of spiders and the targeted trigger sprayer can get them with a direct hit. We also have large bugs in the yard from leaf litter and the pine trees but with this product sprayed regularly around our house we have noticed that we hardly ever see them inside...and that's what I want...for them to stay out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product works Customer Service does too I've been using the Bayer Advanced Home Pest for a few years now....we had Black Widow spiders who loved our garage...now, not so much. I know that when I spray in and around the garage and doors, what's meant to be outside, stays outside (so far I haven't used this in my home, haven't had to...that's a good sign). My sprayer on this gallon container just sort of blew apart...I wrote using their contact form, got a personal phone call from THE nicest gentleman and a replacement sprayer was sent out within several days. Thank you Bayer!!! Anna G, Edmond, OK

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works wonderfully! I have so many annoying bugs in my yard. Fire ants, millipedes,centipedes, and spiders. I hate them all! So gross looking at my yard after the grass gets cut because all the bugs are moving looking for a place to go. And my yard is full of any hills. I decided to try the Bayer advanced about a week and a half ago. Comes all ready to use and spraying is easy. I sprayed in all the areas I wanted plus by my walkway and front door. I honestly can say I have seen a good improvement. I think it will take some time for my big ant hills but overall a good experience so far .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of Mind We live in a rural area and get more than our fair share of bugs with new ones added each year it seems. We have used this product for the past three years and can definitely tell a difference from previous years. It gives me a peace of mind especially when when it's time for spiders to come into the house every year. It is a great product and so easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bye spiders this product got rid of the spiders and earwigs that were coming into the house due to all the rain. I then used bayer complete insect to set up a barrier outside and my insect problems are gone. Thank you bayer for your great products.

How do I control wood-infesting pests with Bayer Advanced Home Pest Plus Germ Killer Indoor & Outdoor Insect Killer?

  • For control of termites and wood-infesting beetles found above ground, apply to voids and holes in damaged wood, and in spaces between wooden structures and between the sill plate and foundation where wood is exposed.
  • Apply spray to exposed worker and winged reproductive forms of termites. This type of application is intended to be a supplemental treatment for control of drywood and above-ground subterranean termites and other wood-infesting insects. It is not intended as a substitute for soil treatments for termite control.
  • For control of swarming or reproductive stages of termites, apply a coarse spray to the swarm or area on which they collect.
  • For control of carpenter ants around houses and other structures, apply around doors and windows and other places where carpenter ants may enter the premises. Spray into cracks and crevices or voids where these ants or their nests are present. Use a sufficient amount of coarse spray to cover the area.
  • For control of carpenter bees in structures, spray the liquid directly into bee entrance holes. Leave the entrance holes open for 24 hours to be certain that returning adult bees are killed. When there is no activity, the hole may be sealed with a suitable sealant.

Can I use Bayer Advanced Home Pest Plus Germ Killer on furniture and carpet?

•For best results spray around baseboards, into cracks and crevices, and other places where insects hide (such as under sinks, cabinets, refrigerators, damp areas, etc.) until surfaces are wet. Spray directly on target insect pests if possible.

•We do not recommend applying Bayer Advanced Home Pest Control Indoor & Outdoor Insect Killer to furniture.
