Preparation for Fogging:

  • Close doors and windows.

  • Turn off fans and air conditioners and disconnect smoke alarms.

  • Open cabinet or cupboard doors, drawers and closets.

  • Cover or remove exposed food, dishes and utensils or wash before use.

  • Remove plants and pets and if you have a fish aquarium, cover and turn off.

  • Fill out the hang tag that is on the box and place on the door.


  • When ready to use, peel back foil on the plastic cup and remove the metal can.

  • Add water to the line marked on the bottom of the cup and place on the floor in the middle of the room.

  • Return can to the plastic cup, being sure to keep upright. There is a short delay before the smoke emits from the can.

  • Leave your home for 3 hours.


  • Open doors and windows and allow to air for 30 minutes. If you still smell an odor, continue to air the rooms before returning to space.

  • Turn on aquariums and connect smoke alarms.

Raid® Fumigator Fumigating Fogger is rated 1.8 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from garbage This did not work I used all 3 cans in my house to kill ants (which is listed on the box as a type of insect it kills). I came back home after the recommended time and they are still crawling around. I wasted almost $14 on this and got no where. I waited a couple days to see if it killed them slowly and still no progress. Will never buy this product again or recommend it to anyone. Waste of time and money. Also the raid ant houses do not work either.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So disappointed I recently moved into an apartment where I'm having a small Roach investigation problem I see them every now and then and I notice that I see them the most in the bathroom ... I purchased this product I use as instructed in the bathroom and two other rooms and home. I set the foggers off around 10 PM and spend the night at my mothers house .... I didn't arrive home in till 1 o'clock the next day ... I was extremely disappointed because I didn't see any dead roaches but I did see live ones in The bathroom & living room almost right next to the can spray foggers .... I feel like all the time I took to prep my home and even spending the night away from home take a sure that the product stayed in the home as long as possible only to have no results.... is just sad.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't kill one bug After spending hours taking 8 guineapigs, 3 rabbits, 3 cats, 2 dogs, 4 tortoises, 2 mini pigs and 2 aquatic turtles out of the house and covering 5 fish tanks, I was very disappointed when I went back in 4.5 hours later to discover nothing was dead, Not even the ones right next to the fogger. Very disappointed in this product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job and then some Like clockwork I used Raid Fumigators in my garage...yep the garage every spring and fall. I live in Texas, land of bugs including the 3 inch tree roaches. Occasionally I would see a tree roach barely alive and on it's back. To me this is a 10 star rating since garages are not tightly sealed and again its Texas. Worth every dime! Now I've moved to an apartment, seen 1 too many I'm doing what I know works best... The Fumigator!Thanks Raid!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horriable. I used this product after sealing up my house. The fleas it kinda got but the roaches. It seems like all they did was come out of there hiding spots. And just like all over. And on the ceiling now and falling on me now.... it saddens me. I spent $14 dollars.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't go off. I'm so frustrated with this product. I bought 4 boxes for my house. I don't know how well they work as we set them off left and came back 5 hrs later to only 2 of the 12 fumigators had set off. I paid so much money for nothing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product Worked When Exterminator Didn't! I had a lot of tiny beetle type bugs getting in my bathroom somehow. I called my professional exterminator and he did not know what type of bug it was, but said the house probably needed to be professionally fumigated. He left saying he would call me back. I read about your product online and thought I would try. It's been 3 days and no beetles have been seen.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't woek Walked into my house to open windows and air it after the prescribed 3 hours and as treated to fleas biting my ankles. To say it didn't work is an understatement - it killed none of them but riled them up nicely. So irritated at having wasted 3 hours only to have it not work

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product, worked well on my fleas and all my bugs in Tennessee and Southeast GA I have been using the Raid Fumigator regularly for 18 years when I was in college. I rented an apartment that had a flea infestation and tried to kill them with multiple products, only to find out about the 3 stages of the flea life cycle. I finally splurged and bought this Raid Fumigator. It took care of the problem and like others mentioned, I found dead spiders and other bugs. I love that it is deep penetrating and residue free. In reading some of the negative reviews, I wonder if people are using the appropriate number of cans. A can of this stuff only covers a certain volume. After this product's initial defeat of the fleas, I have used it in all my subsequent apartments and homes, even under one of my homes in the crawl space. I live in Southeast Georgia now, where there are numerous bugs, and I use this product twice a year to keep my home bug free. It is a little pricey, and instead of being away 3 hours, I found that it is best if you stay out of the home for at least 4 hours. It is good to disconnect your smoke alarms or they will go off, and you don't want to go back in to disconnect them. Again, you must use enough of the product to saturate the volume of the room or house. I have a 1900 sq ft home, so I use 6 cans, and if I see a bug in a room, the next time that I bomb, I isolate that room with a can and shut the door. Ants can be tricky, using the fumigator kills the inside bugs, and I have used granules sprinkled around the entire perimeter of the house and in the yard and this usually kills the ants.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It is HORRIBLE!!! Honestly, it doesn't even deserve 1 star. Bought 2 of the 3 packs of the fumigator because we have inside/outside dogs and ended up with fleas and this product is a waste of money!!! Walk back in my house and still get ate up with fleas.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fumogator -not We removed all of the boxed food and pet food etc. Moved five cats into kennels on the front porch and put our dog in the car while the house was being fumigating . I was disappointed to still see roaches. Now it has been a full day later and this must have been like candy to them because they are coming out laughing at us. I go online to learn this is a part of the system to control roaches. Well I don't want to control them I want them eradicated. It says on the box that they kill Roaches, well try telling that to my roaches. I guess I will try the roach boat stations, and bomb the house again. I am just not sure which product to use now. It doesn't leave an odor or film. Just feeling really disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never again This product did not work. I followed the directions to the T and I didn't even have that bad of a bug problem. When I came home after the three hours there were maybe 2 dead bugs and actually a bug waking around right next to the fumigater. I even removed all food and dished from every cabinet. I had to go behind and spray the raid spray can which worked perfectly and amazing and I would give it five stars because it killed every bug on contact. But the fumigator Is a no for me

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't count on results Tried two applications of those product. 6 cans, 6 rooms, 850sq ft house (completely empty home, no furniture, etc). Achieved limited to no results. Would like my money back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible product! This product had no affect on our problem with roaches! We didn't have many to begin with so we thought we would try to rid of the issue before it got out of hand and with a new baby coming we were hopeful with this product. I'm highly disappointed with this product since we had to prep. I would not recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product Sucks Used Raid Fumigatior in my home to kill roaches and nats. Two days later, roaches are back crawling and moving. Even if they did make it out of the walls I was expecting them to drop dead upon entering my freshly fumigated home. This product was a waste of money and time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible I have a work shop with A closed in section. I have put two cans of this fogger in the room and closed the door and windows because I have an infestation of fleas in this room. It did not do any killing of the fleas. I walked in and they still attacked me. Now they have spread throughout the rest of my building which I have used another raid fogger for fleas in each area. They are not working on fleas. It does kill the roaches but it is not killing the fleas wasted my money and time!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed We have bought 2 different raid flea bombs and still when we came home took 3 steps in fleas attacked out feet. With the amount we have spent on flea bombs we could have just called pest control.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked well I live on 4 acres outside of town. Partial woods, a couple creeks through my yard and across from a 100 acre field. So a lot of bugs. I have a basement. Used 3 down there and 3 upstairs. Found bugs crawled out from their hiding spots and dead. Did its job. Used Terro for ants though. Turn off your smoke detectors.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from RAID FUMIGATOR A FLOP I purchased 4 boxes of Raid Fumigator at a price of $12.99 each due to my neighbor having a bad roach problem and traces of the little buggers started showing up in my house. I placed a total of 12 bombs in a 3 story house and vacated the property as directed for a total of 5 hrs. The box stated up to 3hrs. When I returned to the house there was no smell but I saw more roaches than I thought I had still running around. I have been using your product for years(can sprays) and have been pleased. This has been a real let down.
