Advantages: It works eventually
Disadvantages: It takes ages to work
Raid bug killing products - Around £2 - £2.50 per 300ml depending where you get it
Now I'm more than a bit allergic to bee, and wasp stings, so I tend to have a bottle of Raid lying around constantly in the summer months as an insurance against ever having to use my epi-pen. I hate to do it, and will try to shoo them out the window first, but for the nasties that just won't take the hint I do have to give in. (I hate getting rid of the bodies)...
Now there are many different Raid products, and I have tried most of the ones for flying bugs. They seem to have a sweet smell to them - even the ones that say they are odourless... Now the first blast of the product will generally knock the wasp down from wherever it is (I only use it on beasties I'm allergic to), but they will take ages to die. It's really horrid.
The product itself is semi effective but fr something that claims to kill bugs instantly it's a poor performer.
But hearing the wasps is awful. They seem to have spasms - or seizures or something.
This product is not quick or very humane. (And putting them out of their misery makes me feel sick)...
Summary: It does the job
