With this years heat wave well and truly in full flow, it’s time to get those doors and windows open to allow the fresh breeze to waft throughout the rooms. However, don’t know about you, but our local pests flies, bees and wasps, included see this as in invitation to pop in for a bite to eat, a spot of exercise round the light shades or along the curtain poles and a sip of juice spilt by the kids.
Flies have to be the most annoying of all insects, not only are they noisy, difficult to swat they are well known for spreading germs. I have used countless ‘cheap’ fly killers, but find they took an age to solve the problem. I was about to give up hope until a friend of mine said she used Raid Fly and Wasp killer and it was very effective.
I decided that I would have to invest in a can so during my next visit to Tesco I plonked one in my trolley. A 300ml can set me back £1.49. I have seen Raid in various other supermarkets and also in general stores and garden centres. The price can range from what I paid up to over £2.
Raid can be easily distinguished on the supermarket shelves. Packaged in a rich metallic blue tin, Raid is printed on in bright yellow letters along with a picture of a wasp and fly. The words “Kills Bugs Dead” can also be clearly seen, so this in enough to persuade me that I am buying the right product.
Made by the infamous Johnson Wax Ltd, makers of Mr Sheen and other household products, Raid has been my lifesaver. Using this product couldn’t be easier, simply aim, target and fire. A couple of quick short sprays are enough to get the little blighters running for cover and within a few minutes each pest starts dive-bombing onto the windowsill and starts doing an impressive round of back-spins before dying. So pretty effective in my book.
Raid’s smell can only be described as horrid, very strong chemicals make up this formula, hence the lack of floral aroma. Great news if like me dreary eyed in the morning you reach for the polish by mistake.
This product is only intended for indoor use. Gees, you’d be spraying outdoors all day long if it was intended for the garden. I must point out that the chemicals are harmful for pets and young children. I only spray when my kids are out of the room and only allow them to come in after 10 minutes to allow the fumes to disappear.
As with all dangerous chemicals, avoid spraying on or around food. This includes all kitchen worktops.
As I mentioned before this product has been a great investment. My can has lasted me a few weeks now, whereas before when using cheaper alternatives I was getting through at least 1 can a week. So, in my humble opinion this is worth every penny it costs. Go on and give those buzzers a run for their money.
