Say goodbye to creepy crawlies and hello to peace of mind with Ortho Home Defense and its handy Comfort Wand. With just four simple steps, you’ll be on your way to a pest-free home in no time.

Prep the Comfort Wand:

  • Start by taking the sprayer wand out of its holster.
  • You’ll notice a pull strip, go ahead and remove that to activate the batteries.
  • Next, unfold the Comfort Wand until you hear a satisfying click, indicating it’s in position and ready to use.

How to Connect:

  • Take the hose and unwrap it, then insert the connector into the bottle cap spout.
  • Please give it a good shake to make sure everything is mixed together.
  • Twist the knob to “On,” and you’re ready to go.

How to Spray:

  • Turn the sprayer nozzle to your desired spray and location setting.
  • Slide the switch on the trigger to “Unlock,” and you’re ready to start spraying.
  • For indoor surfaces, hold the sprayer about 12 inches away from the surface and apply a 4-inch wide band. You want to make the area slightly wet without soaking it.
  • If you’re doing a perimeter treatment, hold the sprayer about 12 inches away from the surface and apply a 12-inch wide band along the exterior of your home.
  • If you’re treating your pet’s resting quarters, spot-treat infested areas and then localized areas where pests may be present.

Last Step

  • When you’re finished, turn the nozzle to “Off.”
  • Slide the switch on the trigger back to “Lock.”
  • Fold the Comfort Wand closed and place it back in its holster.

And there you have it! This a simple and effective way to protect your home and pets from pests. The Comfort Wand makes it easy and convenient to get the job done.

Product Label Instructions
When using Ortho Home Defense, it’s important to know where to apply it and where not. To ensure your family’s safety and the environment, do not spray it on animals or into the air. 

Also, avoid spraying it into fish pools, ponds, streams, or lakes, and never apply it directly to sewers or storm drains. Instead, use Ortho Home Defense indoors in areas such as kitchens, bathrooms, doors, windows, and basements, as well as outdoors in perimeter foundations, garages, patios, and decks.

Use it anytime as a preventative treatment or after evidence of insect activity, and for best results, reapply at least once per season (every three months) outdoors. With these guidelines, you’ll be on your way to a pest-free home in no time!

How Does Ortho Home Defense Work?

Ortho Home Defense Insect Killer is a powerful solution that uses bifenthrin as its active ingredient, a nerve agent that is highly effective in killing bugs on contact and providing long-lasting protection for up to 12 months. 

Whether you’re using it as a preventative measure or after evidence of an infestation, Ortho Home Defense is the solution you need. Say goodbye to pesky roaches, even those tough German cockroaches, with a few sprays of this highly effective insecticide. Don’t let bugs take over your home – take control with Ortho Home Defense.

How Long Does Ortho Home Defense Take To Dry?

The drying time for this powerful solution may vary depending on the temperature, but in general, it dries to the touch in just one hour. To be on the safe side, I always wait for 2 hours before letting my pets back into the treated area.
