Orange Guard Home Pest Control -- 32 fl oz
An Orange Spray Keep the Ants Away!
I was skeptical at first, afterall, this spray lists that it is safe around food, pets and people yet it is capable of repelling and killing ants on contact.
We have our seasonal ant invasion in our home. Ants are a year-round problem in Florida, but particularly in April, this time we were up against medium sized red fire ants and we have both a dog and 15 month old in the house. We sprayed it on the mat where the dog has his water dish and food dish - apparently, the ants hated the orange oil so much that they allowed themselves to drown rather than walk through the orange oil! The ants had entered the large dog feeding bin and were trapped inside once the spray had been applied to the mat, they crawled to the adjacent water dish and drowned by the dozens!
The next spot was in the corner of the kitchen, between the garage entry wall and cabinets -- a small hole through the grout allowed them to come into the house and terrorize us during the night, finding scattered ants during the day. We sprayed a line across the threshold and managed to find exactly where they were coming from and where they are going. The spray made quick work of those ants, killing them on contact... others walking through the dried oil at night also ended up with the same fate as those sprayed!
I love this stuff!

This product is pet safe and really works
I've used Orange Guard for many years at home and at work. I live in an apartment building and stray bugs come through occasionally. I spray Orange Guard around behind the stove, etc. It is harmless to pets. My cat doesn't even mind the smell of it...nice and orangey.
It repels them when I spray each week.

This seems to work better than anything else I've tried on mealy bugs. It is not toxic and smells like oranges. I highly recommend it.

This doesn't work on spiders, but "great" on earwigs. Yes - great!
Also the smell is nice and isn't harmful to humans. Nice scent of oranges.

MORE GREEN GARGABE (EUPHEMISM)!
DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY. I bought this thinking it would be less toxic. I have a first floor apt. in a heavily wooded area and there are a lot of spiders and centipeds. I had to spray, spray, and spray... finally just stepping on the bugs. This DOES NOT KILL ON CONTACT or humanely They should stop with the false advertising. Too bad, I wish they could make a non-toxic bug killer. Apparently this product is just one of many green pieces of garbage (euphemism)
