  • Raid Ant & Roach Killer Max is an aerosol spray that kills the bugs on contact. It has an extensive reach and will kill anything you point it at but doesn’t work as well against nests deep within walls or under furniture. The canister contains nine ounces of liquid – enough to spray for about six weeks in a small home – and is recommended for use on large homes or buildings.
  • Hot Shot Bed Bug Killer kills more than just bed bugs, but it only works when sprayed directly onto the bug. It can’t be used as an all-purpose spray like Raid Ant & Roach Killer Max because of its weaker concentration and lack of wide reach. The liquid in a single bottle (six ounces) would last about four weeks if sprayed once daily with one squirt per square foot.
  • The main difference between these two products is that while Raid Ant & Roach Killer Max kills everything you point it at, Hot Shot Bed Bug killer kills any pest within the range, including other kinds of insects such as roaches, fleas, ticks, and spiders.
  • Raid Ant & Roach Killer Max can be used in various ways, such as spraying the perimeter of your home to discourage pest entry or by applying it directly onto surfaces where roaches are most likely to come into contact with the product. Every year, many people become infested by bed bugs because they brought them back from their travels and never suspected anything until the telltale bites started appearing weeks later.
  • It’s essential to keep all areas around your bed clean at all times since this is usually how an initial infestation begins; so you should wash sheets regularly and vacuum up any crumbs that accumulate near beds while also checking for signs on floors/under mattresses and behind furniture (anywhere else insects could crawl into and hide).
  • The product is designed to be applied to the infested surfaces. Still, you must read the instructions on how best to apply it, as this will depend on your individual situation. Some people prefer using a hand duster for example. In contrast, others may find it easier/more convenient to use an aerosol spray can which can also provide additional benefits in terms of speeding up the process.

Active Ingredients

In this section, we will talk about the ingredients of those two products. Active Ingredients of hot shot bed bug killer are imiprothrin 0.100%, Lambda-cyhalothrin 0.025%, and Other Ingredients: 99.875%.

How to Use It

Hotshot bed bug killer is a contact kill product. It can be applied with the hands, in cracks and crevices where pests hide, or by using a manual or electric duster. Shake Raid bed aerosol spray well before each use. Hold the container upright with the nozzle pointed away from you.

Spray until damp duster is lightly coated with Raid bed bug killer. Apply to cracks and crevices where pests are hiding or lurking, such as baseboards, corners, storage areas, closets, water pipes, doors, and windows, in attics and behind eaves, beneath floorboards, and carpets, behind wall outlets, on furniture, and inside cabinets.

What to Expect

When using Raid Ant & Roach Killer Max, you can expect it to kill on contact and keep killing for four weeks. It will also help to repel roaches, ants, and spiders so that they stay away from the treated areas.

Hot Shot Bed Bug Killer will kill bed bugs on contact and continue to work for up to two weeks. It will also kill other pests such as fleas, ticks, spiders, and cockroaches. However, it’s not as effective at repelling these pests as Raid Ant & Roach Killer Max.
