WHAT’S THE BEST HOME BUGSPRAY?
We get this question quite a lot. The short answer is a few things; two for the outside and two for the inside.

Well here’s a quick list that works great for most anything you might encounter in or around the home.
FIRST USE MAXXTHOR GRANULES
Fоr thе turf (lаwn, mulсh аnd уаrd аrоund thе hоmе), аррlу MAXXTHOR SG evеrу 2-3 mоnthѕ if you don’t have pests and want to keep it that way. Thеse granules will release the active slowly and will be gone in about 30 days.
The following “short video” (less than 60 seconds long) gives a quick summary of why these are good to use throughout the year for pest prevention in the ground.
Put out 1/2-1 lb per 1,000 sq/ft and plan on treating monthly if you have a persistent pest problem.
NEXT SPRAY OVER THE GRANULES WITH MAXXTHOR EC
Fоr thе еxtеrіоr оf thе hоmе (gutters down to the base of the foundation) plan on applying 2-3 gallons of mixed material for maintenance; 3-5 gаllоnѕ for control when using MAXXTHOR EC. Treatments should be done at least once a mоnth and plan on treating 8-9 months of the year.
The following “short video” (less than 60 seconds long) shows how to use this in our Green Topped Hose End Sprayer which is your best option for applying it.
Maxxthor is fast acting and repelling to all insects making it a great option for use on the home, turf, trees, shrubs and more. And it wоrkѕ оn mоѕt аnу реѕt.
THE BEST HOSE END SPRAYERS
As stated above, using a good HOSE END SPRAYER is the best way to distribute the Maxxthor. This is because it will deliver a high volume of water using your hoses water pressure. This means less work for you, less time required, and more importantly a more thorough treatment. Using more water is key to getting the outside properly covered treated.
This video shows the difference between our two biggest selling hose end sprayers and you can order either here: Hose End Sprayers: https://bugspray.com/hose-end
To get the most of your Maxxthor, add SPREAD-X BOOST to your tank mix. Boost is an adjuvant, also known as a wetter spreader or spreader sticker. It basically makes water and the mixture more “slippery” so you get better coverage. Treatments will spread 2-3 times wider and penetrate deeper.
The following short video summarizes why Boost can help deliver your treatment to where it matters the most. And this is extra helpful when treating homes with siding like vinyl, aluminum and stucco where small pests can hide.
Add no more than the rate you’re applying the Maxxthor so if you’re adding 2.5 oz of Maxxthor to the hose end sprayer, add 2.5 oz of Boost before adding water. If you’re adding Maxxthor to a pump sprayer at the rate of 1 oz per gallon, use 1 oz of Boost.
And don’t spray in the middle of the day; treat late in the day close to sunset so the treatment can dry without direct sunlight. UV light on the Boost can stress plants if the temperature is 85 degrees or higher not to mention the negative impact UV light has on the active ingredients.
BEST ODORLESS SPRAY FOR INSIDE THE HOME
Now if you have insects in the home and feel you need to liquid spray? Maxxthor is not for this purpose so plan on using BITHOR.
This odorless water based active mixes 1 oz to a gallon of water and will last 1-2 months per treatment.
The following “short video” (less than 60 seconds long) shows why this concentrate is a great option for use in the home for sensitive areas.
Labeled for use on carpets, baseboards, garages, basements, etc., you can safely use it inside when inside treatments are needed but it works around the exterior well too (just not nearly as well as the Maxxthor).
BEST HOME SPRAYERS
For either the Maxthor or the Bithor, you’ll need a good PUMP SPRAYER to make the application.
Now if you have hardwood floors or tiles, anything but carpeting, our MINI MISTER will be your best sprayer option. It lets you apply the Bithor without “over spraying” and creating puddles.
This short video (less than 60 seconds long) gives a quick overview of the sprayer and we have a longer video available with more details on its product page.
The Mini Mister will let you do treatments with very little effort saving time and not making a mess inside.
BEST CRACK AND CREVICE SPRAY FOR WINDOWS AND DOORS
Lаѕtlу, a good aerosol is always handy to have for spot treating, places where you can’t liquid spray or if you don’t need but a little treatment and a whole gallon would be a waste. The best aerosol for this task is our FS MP.
It’ѕ fast working, can be used inside and outside and has a solvent system that allows it to get deep into cracks and crevices where insects are sure to be hiding.
The following video shows how to use it for thoroughly treating a window, one of the most common points of entry.
The great thing about FS MP is that it kills all stages of all bugs, even eggs, so nothing will be missed when you apply it to where insects are thriving or nesting.
And to apply the granules, a good HAND SPREADER will do but you can also use any push type fertilizer spreader.
