Used Outdoor Barrier Surface Spray for past 20 years VERY disappointing product now, like most things these days!!!
I've notice over the past 10 to 15 years the surface spray was declining in quality, and over the latter years more so, also with a horrible irritation in the back of throat from the odor...I won't be back for any more, I'm done with crap products everywhere by big co's sucking the big $$ with poor quality products!!
Use this indoor you will get amazing results
I used this indoor because every spray was not working so I had to resort to this and 3 days later all the roaches are appearing from everywhere and they are clearly distressed and dying slowly but surely. Many many more have appeared but I know they will all die off soon. Was just crazy to see how many there really was the first morning they were dead everywhere.
Purchased in April 2019 for A$9.00.
Just doesn't work. At all.
It might kill on instant contact (that's not the point of using it), but even then 30 minutes later ants and other crawlies are walking over the area again like there's nothing there. Not really much of a "barrier" in my book. Not that the indoor variety does anything better - they're both crap products. What a waste of money - and they're EXPENSIVE! There wasn't even a nozzle on the one I bought (only realised once I'd started using it).
I'd give it negative stars if I could.
Purchased in December 2018 for A$10.00.
Frustrating, Time Wasting Product
Mortein Surface Spray Professional Diy Kit 2L, is what I purchased. There is no way you can actually spray this stuff, it has a jelly like texture. I took it back, I am not sure if this was a "bad" batch. 15 minutes of attempted priming with the spray tip screwed off and the container raised got this jelly like product squirting out for a short while then stopped and would not flow. Give it a shake when purchasing and if it does seem like liquid, don't buy it.
Seems to Work
When I first used MBO, it seemed to work exceptionally well through winter and into the next summer cycle. Second and third times seemed a little shorter, and this last time has been about two months up to now. I think it works very well, but you have to make sure that you apply it EVERYWHERE that bugs can get into. I'd love to use the indoor one but I have two pets so that's not an option. It's on the pricey side but at least it works. Thanks. :)
Keeps crawlies out for 3 months
I spray with this product along all doors and windows externally. It lasts at least 3 months, forming a barrier that cockies don't cross. If there is a really heavy storm, respray. They used to have a thin tube attachment which was much more accurate when spraying, but not any more. I didn't have glug unless I sprayed several times in the one spot. And you don't have to do that at all.
Great product will buy again
As an arachnaphobic I found this product very useful. I bought the product in the picture - spray on, around $7. As I sprayed it around the outside of my house I saw dozens of spiders die, and it is very easy to use. I haven't found any crawling insects in my home since I used this product, a huge improvement!
Cheap, easy to use, very effective
Mortein Ejaculated on my house
The new Mortein outdoor spray is now a a thick claggy gell that does not flow easily and leaves an unpleasant look of sticky white fluid all over the outside of the house.
People would be afraid to go near my front gate where I sprayed for spiders because it looks like .. well ... semen.
The spray instructions are wrong, they are getting lots of phone calls because they dod not change the instructions when they changed the formula.
A real waste of $25.
Can not use with spray provided
Fantastic Surface spray
Mortein barrier outdoor surface spray offers a fantastic protection for your house for up to 6 months. It has a subtle fragrance and it has a water based formula to prevent stains on surfaces. Its designed to kill crawling insects on contact so they don't make it into your house. It works perfectly to prevent against ants and cockroaches. Easy to use with a special designed nozzle to make spraying around doors and windows easier. Only a little amount of spray is needed to cover most surfaces. I have also used it indoors when I ran out of a fly ...spray and it worked just as well without leaving any stains. Available from all good supermarkets and convenience stores for a fair price. Provides great barrier around the house on all crawling insects for up to 6months
