I originally got the Stink Bug Control Kit. When I ran out, I got the 1 lb jar, thinking it was more economical. Then I saw the scoop and figured I'd loose that. Lo and behold, it fits IN the container! It's easier to mix, doesn't clog the sprayer and well it was great before I used it.
After I used it, I can't really say I saw a difference, since the kit worked great, this also seemed to work great. We have had one live stink bug in the house, we actually saw him fly in when we opened the door. He got flushed. Found one dead stink bug upstairs to.
I've been doing this for a while, and have thought maybe every two months would be better than three. My daughter sprays the outside with Ortho Home Defense, and I spray the outside with the Demon WP. We spray every crack, crevice, sill, around doors, light fixtures and around windows. I additionally spray the sides of the house, a much wider area around all windows, doors and then just keep spraying until it's gone (inside top of awnings, etc.). Inside of the house, we use Ortho, around cracks (water pipes), outside walls/floors, windows, vents, etc.
My spider problem: I had a 1:00 a.m. wolf spider problem. Every morning at 1:00 a.m. one would appear in the same spot in my basement. I would Raid Wasp and Hornet kill him. So one weekend I cleaned out the under-the-step closet, used double strength Demon WP and sprayed the whole thing. Replaced the stuff that resided in there after it dried, and never had another spider problem.
This weekend we were outside, noticed a few stink bugs that landed on the house, but usually flew away rather quickly. So I am confused on the bad reviews. We live in an extremely buggy rural area. I had professionals for years. Found I had to help them out using the other product, which worked very effectively, but we still had stink bugs. I found the Demon WP. I replaced the exterminators with it and I have less of a bug problem and the stink bugs cut down from one a day to maybe 1 a month during cold weather. They did however teach me for ants to spray all windows sills.
Just an interesting note for ants, detergent and water mixture is an instant kill, safer for animals than commercial sprays. If I left food on the counter at certain times of the year, for more than 1 hour (while we ate dinner), we would have an invasion. However, since we've been doing our own extermination, we don't have invasions any more, just an occasional bug here and there. I have two dogs that go out, a 4 year old and two adult kids with friends, so the doors open a lot. With all of the dead bugs in my basement, I will assume they would probably die on their own if I didn't see them first.
