Saved us money
By Michael on 01/02/2008
We had this pest control company come in and spend all of 3 minutes treating roaches in the kitchen. At the end of his 3 minutes presented me with a handwritten bill for $65, as he smiled and said see you in 4 weeks. I don't think so! Fortunately for me he was in such a rush to get to his next customer, he left a half finished can of Invader HPX behind in the cupboard. That's how I got to know what product he used. I looked it up on Google and the first listing was DoMyOwnPestControl.com, so we will be taking care of that little task with your products from now on and we saved money too. Feel free to use the testimonial.

Very effective but horrible fumes
By Patty in Los Angeles, California on 05/17/2010
Invader is an excellent insect repellent. As powerful as any pesticide professional can spray in your home. However, the fumes are almost lethal. Had to leave windows open in room for days, yes, days, to get the fumes out. Could not inhabit the room until it was free of the fumes. Otherwise, I recommend Invader as an excellent product. And doing business with DoMyOwnPestControl is fantastic! Wonderful people there!

By Jim in MN on 03/21/2011
Propoxur is one of the pesticides used to treat bed bugs and I have used this for about 2.5 months at about 3 week intervals. The results were mixed. There was a reduction in bites but they still continue nonetheless. Bedbugs are a difficult pest to eliminate and the Propoxur in Invader should be knocking them more quickly. I've read an article on pesticides which said the concentration should be 2% and Invader has only 1%. Also, the can stated flushing/contact and not residual so these may be the reasons the problem persists even after thorough spraying and dusting.

Most powerful insecticide legally available
By Steve on 10/23/2010
If you're over the age of 45 or so, you'll recognize the odor of Invader Aerosol as "Black Flag with Baygon". It kills instantly and has great residual action. It works as good as chlorpyrifos (Dursban), and better than diazinon or malathion, all of which are no longer available in the US. Just be sure to ONLY use it in cracks and crevices like they say (wink, wink.)

People Don't Want A Crack & Crevice Bed Bug Spray
By Twice in New York City, NY on 07/25/2011
Bed bugs don't live in cracks and crevices, they live in mattresses, so I don't think most people will use the product according to directions. We had to get rid of our boxspring, so I sprayed the metal bedframe. We put wood slats in the frame to create support for the remaining top mattress and for about a week this seemed to work. Then we started getting bites again. I have to wait for my husband to help me lift the mattress, early in the day so the room has time to air out, before I can try spraying the frame again. Although I've tried spraying the product into a plastic container (placed in a deep sink) and dipping a cotton swab in the pool of sprayed product and swabbing the seams of the mattress (and a few bedbugs), I wouldn't try spraying the mattress itself. The product is oily and I don't know if it would spread through the mattress and onto our skin. The product does not smell bad. It has the distinct aroma of Baygon but if you allow time (a couple of hours) for the room to air, the smell does not linger, though I can say from past experience with Baygon, don't spray it near an area that will heat up, such as a heating pipe, and certainly not a stove. I'm disappointed that the product didn't work by spraying the frame and the floor under the bed alone. The product does not actually say it is useful for bed bugs, but that may be because a bed is something we come in intimate physical contact with and the spray is not intended to be used where it can contact skin. I'm giving the product a medium rating of 3 stars because I didn't get the results I wanted, but only tried it once.
Invader Aerosol Works Great!
By Mike in Albany NY on 10/09/2016
The active ingredient is one that I new from a product called Haunt. That was the stuff the pros were using that is no longer available. This stuff did the job same excellent results. Dont let you pet lick it but you only need to spray areas where there is water. Kitchen and bath, basement under bathroom pipes. I also did around the outside of my house foundation and windows because I was being invaded from the neighbors house next door. One can did the trick!

I bought a house with a heavy infestation of roaches. I sprayed this in every crack/crevice I could find. After waiting several hours I had not seen many driven from hiding so I went ahead and sprayed the whole house with Suspend SC mixed with Gentrol IGR. It was my first time using the Invader so maybe I didn't use it correctly, but won't buy it again. The Suspend/Gentrol spray has taken care of my problem.

Not strong enough
By Erica in Oregon on 03/19/2016
The fume is strong in this aerosol and it is is 1% propoxur which you would likely have to spray up the entire contents to get close to the required rate for killing of BB or your pest. It didn't do a thing that I can see, maybe keep the BB at bay till it dries or you go to sleep. Most BB are hiding in a baseboard, bedding, furniture, or carpet. They transport on people, the younger ones will jump and fall down onto you in the night from the ceiling. I have had some crazy experiences when you live with them long enough. They bite anywhere too. Please know these bugs are on their own timetable. It is best you watch, heat, steam, use dryer extensively before and after washing to get it under control until you can eradicate. Most are resistance to chemicals so you have to mix off the labels. Research the studies and current reviews, its all over the county a serious problem and this hasn't done nothing for me in Ohio or Oregon. Get a liquid content.
Please note that Invader is not labeled for use on bedbugs which is likely why you did not get the results you were looking for. It is very important that you use only products labeled for your target pest to make sure you get the needed results. Please take a few minutes to read our Bedbug Guide to learn how to implement a successful bedbug control program: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/how-to-get-rid-of-bed-bugs-a-449.html
By Anne in Hanover PA on 01/28/2016
Since bed bugs are becoming resistant to different insecticides, I decided to try another one of the carbamates called propoxur. I sent for the 14-ounce can of Invader spray, which contains this chemical as its active ingredient. Invader spray, together with encasements on the mattress and box spring, has proved effective so far. Since bed bugs can live for over a year, I plan to leave in place the encasements containing Invader spray, which kills bed bugs and their eggs, until I am sure that the problem has been solved.

By Tony in longview texas on 11/16/2015
This product works well on contact. I was using a store bought product that would seem to kill the roaches but i did not see the results instantly. Invader gave me the confidence that i needed. I use this product for my rent properties. The property i use this product on was infested and nothing else worked but this product. I recomend it.

Roaches or Palmetto bugs, whatever you call them, they are nasty. I spray once a month to six weeks around the openings in the walls under my sinks where the pipes come through. Now, I see an occasional "Bug", but he is dead. Do use the nozzle tube that comes with can, otherwise you end using too much of the liquid, and the smell will last a long time. About a one or two second squirt is all you need. Works great for me ! Much better than the sprays that you get at the big discount home supply stores.

Invader Aerosol and D-Force

Could not find a better products than the Invaders and D-Force. I always keep both products. I will rate both a 5 STARS.... keep a can in my office.
Have a question about this product?

Ask a Question
QHow effective is Propoxur against bedbugs?
AThere is no known resistance to the active ingredient propoxur which makes it very effective for bedbugs. Unfortunately, Propoxur has been discontinued due to EPA regulations and only the product left on the shelves now is allowed to be sold. After the existing stock is gone, propoxur will no longer be manufactured.
QIs Invader Aerosol safe for children and pets to be around?
AWhen used according to the product label, Invader Aerosol is only being applied to the cracks and crevices around the room, not out in the open on the floor. By applying the product as specified on the product label you limit the contact your children and pets can have with it. Once the Invader Aerosol is dry it is safe for the kids and pets to return to the treated rooms.
QDoes Invader Aerosol come with a plastic straw to get inside of the cracks and crevices?
AYes, Invader Aerosol does come with an application straw to treat cracks and crevices.
QIs Invader effective in killing and preventing stink bugs?
I live in Virginia, in a rural area and am fighting a war against stink bugs. Will this product be effective in killing the ones that are already in my home and preventing more from coming in?
AInvader is a great product for stink bugs. Unfortunately if you are dealing with them in your house right now you will only see limited results. Stink bugs move into structures to overwinter. They usually squeeze into wall voids, false ceilings, attics and other areas that are inaccessible to people and insecticides. As the heat kicks on in the house, the stink bugs warm up and start becoming active and emerge from hiding, driving homeowners nuts. Because most folks usually have no idea where the bugs are harboring you can only treat directly in cracks and crevices around baseboards, door frames and window frames and hope the insects will emerge where you have sprayed. After they contact the treated areas it can take several hours for them to die. It is still worth spraying now to get rid of some of the bugs, but you will keep seeing them until late spring when they will emerge en mass and leave your home. They do not eat, mate or lay eggs while indoors so need to worry about any damage or future baby stink bugs. This year you can be proactive by stopping these pests before they move in for the winter. You should spray a product such as Demon WP outdoors around your door frames, window frames, vents, eaves, around the bottom of your foundation, and any other crack or crevice where an insect could gain entry once a month August-November.
QIs there a product pick-up location in Manhattan?
I am going to New York at the end of the month. I would like to feel safe in our room. Is there a location where I can pick up products (and call for them prior to)in Manhattan? Thanks, Jackie
AUnfortunately, the professional products on our website are not sold over the counter anywhere, and we do not have locations in any state. We are an online store only and ship from Atlanta, GA. We always offer Fast, Free Shipping, so we can deliver the products right to your door.
QWill Invader HPX kill sewer flies?
AWhile Invader HPX probably will kill sewer flies, it is must be used only in cracks, crevices and wall voids which will most likely severely limit the contact these annoying flies can make with the application. We recommend using a pyrethrin spray such as CB-80. CB -80 can be used as both a space spray and a crack and crevice spray, making it much more effective for sewer fly control. You will also most likely need DF5000 to treat directly in drains where these flies breed and develop.

QDifference between D-Force and HPX Invader?
I have bought the green aerosol can in the past called Invader HPX Residual with Propoxur, and it was great for cockroaches. Now I see a blue can called Invader, then another one called D-Force. Which one do you recommend and what and how are each product different?
A D-force contains deltamethrin and Invader contains Propoxur. If you are dealing with a population of roaches that have been exposed to many pesticides in the past then the Invader would be the better choice because roaches have not shown any evidence of resistance to the propoxur. Additionally, when dealing with roaches we also recommend you use a roach bait gel and an insect growth regulator as a spray should only be used as part of your roach control program. Below is a link to an article that explains how to get rid of roaches quickly: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/how-to-get-rid-of-german-roaches-a-245.html
