Last summer I went with Company X, paid big money and kept getting ants... lots of them. This summer I have used this ortho max granules product around the perimeter of the house and used the spray inside the house if I saw ants coming out of any cracks. THIS WORKS! I am soooo happy I did not spend hundreds to renew my contract with Company X. Do it your self and save money for those pesky small ants.

The warm weather of New York in early spring brought black ants (maybe carpenter) into our home. After one application of the product around the perimeter of the house the ant invasion stopped. A single ant was found the first morning after (who had presumably been trapped inside) and not one since. Excellent product. Would purchase again!

Purchased for a flea infestation in my yard due to squirrels, birds, and neighbors over fence not keeping their kennel clean with at least 9 dogs. My dog is an indoor/outdoor dog.
Recommend the product but I am finding that this product should be purchased by people who do not have a bad infestation or a large yard. My yard is at least 50x50 and it has a fair infestation of fleas. It is not working as well as I would like it to work but it has killed off a lot of the fleas, some of ants, some of the flies, and some of the mosquitos. If it were more potent, Im sure it would have done a better job on such a large area.

Once I tried this I was hooked. Very easy to use. I faithfully put the granules down every 3 months, it takes 10 minutes if that. I have noticed a dramatic difference in the bug population in and around the house. I love all the Ortho products and use them for my lawn care, garden pests and the ocassional one that manages to find its way in. This is one of the best pest control products out there today.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Great Quality

It's very easy to spread around the foundation. Since I started using it, I've definitely seen a reduced number of bugs coming in the house.
