This is our favorite question! It’s not always possible to completely get rid of bugs indoors, but a combination of the right products, some good old-fashioned cleaning, and home repairs can go a long way. No single product can do everything to solve your bug problem, which is why it’s important to take a multifaceted approach. Also, keep in mind that bugs come into the home for a variety of reasons: food, water, or shelter. Correctly identifying the bugs you are fighting—and then eliminating the things that attract them—will help prevent them from coming inside. The harder you make it for bugs to come indoors, the less likely it will be that they invade.
Fighting Bugs from the Outside In
If bugs are invading your home, chances are they’re coming in from outside. While treatment depends on the type of bug you’re dealing with, these general tips can help:
When using outdoor products to fight bugs, such as Raid® House and Garden Bug Killer, rain can put a damper on things. Make sure to check the weather first, since you don’t want to apply an outdoor product if there’s rain in the forecast. Ideal conditions are days under 90 degrees. Rain can jumpstart new bug populations and may also make your treatments ineffective. Re-apply to outdoor areas after heavy rain if the problem doesn’t go away. For other products, check the reapplication information on the label. Be sure to read the label before use.
