Flies recover after knockdown
After some weeks use I began to suspect Naturgard was relatively ineffective so I sprayed a room then trapped 3 of the flies in a jar, easy to do as they were obviously made very ill by the Naturgard, unable even to walk normally, but 12 hrs later all were fully recovered and flying robustly inside the jar.
We had bought a whole carton trusting in a brand name, now very disappointed in and wary of Mortein products.

Mortein NaturGard not killing mosquitos but did kill fly
Where I live mozzies are not much a problem except for this year. I bought a can of Raid and was perplexed to find I had to spray the damn thing so many times I was coughing and spluttering! Raid refunded my money when I complained. So I bought Mortein thinking it could be better. Nah! no way, the mozzies are laughing at me - I can see them not even fazed when I blast them head on and continue to make fun of me, flying around happily! Whether they did later I doubt, and they seem to keep it up when I am at the computer they are dive bombing...me. I have more luck killing them if I let them land on me and slap them or clap my hands over them! They DO NOT LIKE Vicks Vaporrub though. We wear this in bed to keep them away and away they stay! I need to put some on myself now! Next Im going to try peppermint oil. I actually think it easier to kill a cockroach as the surface spray does kill them.
At last an insect spray with no strong scent
It doesn't have that strong scent that chokes you with one spray.
It does its job . The mozzies were out on full force this weekend so I had to go get spray and I'm glad I found this one .Sprayed twice and they were gone.
Coles had them on special 6 bucks each so it's a bargain considering the others cost more wherever you go.
Not something you buy twice
I like to keep the doors open in summer and flies are an unwelcome outcome. I was hoping that a short spray would clear the room. Unlike other reviewers, I have experienced some positive outcomes but I wouldnt buy this product again. It's been years since I've used a spray and I dont think that I feel comfortable with spraying a lot of chemicals into the air. Maybe the safety requirements on aerosols like this, result in a product that simply doesn't do the job. I will be looking at more electronic solutions in the future.
Purchased in November 2019 at Bunnings for A$5.00.
Have tried many times on 0800 number to complain, continually getting disconnected, have left voice messages, no replies. This product 100 % will not kill flies. It is now time to open up social media and to become a "fly in the ointment" with the major supermarkets here in NZ that Reckitt Benckiser, as a company "YOU SUCK"
Purchased in December 2019 for A$10.00.
Completely, utterly, and totally useless.
My wife kept complaining that the Mortein sprays that I was buying were not killing anything, including flies. Our kitchen is very good at attracting more than it's fair share of flies, so I always keep fly spray on top of the fridge.
After using this product on two flies in the kitchen, I noticed that the product did absolutely nothing. The flies just kept on buzzing around even when almost drowned in Mortein.
I would suggest that to make this work, catch the pest, pour out some of the contents of the can and drown them in it. That is the...
Totally useless and bad for your health
I will never being using this product again. I had a severe asthma attack and my husband could not stop coughing and we only sprayed it for 10 seconds. Take it off the market before it kills somebody. How can you pass that as environmentally friendly and rain forest approved. How did it pass its tests in the first place.
Warning allergic reactions
I have used this spray only twice and both times have had hay fever symptoms to the point where it feels like I have the flu almost instantly. Both myself and my partner have this problem and we don't have any allergies that we are aware of and do not suffer from hay fever. I would not suggest purchasing this product unless you want to spend the night sniffling. It works well at killing the bugs but I will not be using this product indoors ever again.
DOESNT WORK ON ANYTHING!!!
As a single mother I must wear the pants and remove all the creepy crawlers and what not from my home and especially the children's bedroom. I put my faith in a bottle of Insect killer so I didn't have to do the grossly unthinkable and smush it with my bare hands. And I was completely destroyed when I realised that's expensive bottle of fly spray DOESNT KILL ANYTHING!
Seriously why is this even on the shelves? Did you guys test it before deciding it will kill insects and selling it to the public?
Mortein does not live up to it's brand
I bought this product because previous Mortein products worked. Like all the other reviews this product is 100% useless. Very disappointed since trying to enjoy a Christmas lunch out doors. The flys appeared to enjoy the bath when in contact with the spray and happily flew away. The Mosquitos just kept flying around until slapped with hands. Hopefully the manufacturers will read the feedback and fix this problem. It might as well be a can of water.
Do not buy!!!
My husband bought two cans of this on a malti buy special...Well now i am stuck with two cans of bad insect 'killer'....It doesn't work at all, i have used it on a white tail and another spider and literally had to drown it before it even thought about dying!! I will stick to using a killer that has no natural products!! They don't work!!!
A complete waste of money
Like others, I bought this because Mortein has worked well for me in the past, and also because I wanted one that had more natural ingredients and an unoffensive odour. I tried to be patient with this spray because it's made with "over 90% natural ingredients", so I thought perhaps it might not be as strong as the stink-the-house-out chemical-laden stuff I usually get. I sprayed and sprayed but unfortunately it didn't do anything on either mozzies or flies. The one time I DID get it to work I think it was more a case of me actually drowning the...fly in the spray rather than it dying because of said spray. Save your money and try a different brand, I purchased insect surface spray in the cheap Woolworths brand for around $3 and it worked a LOT better than this one did at double the cost! It doesn't have an offensive odour like a lot of other sprays do. Expensive and ineffective.
Hopeless - waste of money
I rarely use fly spray but occasionally I need to and so purchased this product. I spray it directly on the flies and they just fly off as if nothing has happened and continue flying around the room. It's like using nothing at all. I don't know if it kills mosquitos but I won't be purchasing it again.
It didn't kill flies
Purchased thinking this would be good as it is a Mortein product and it just didn't work. I used it aiming straight at several flies and they just kept buzzing around happily. It seemed to take anything up to an hour to work on them when it actually worked. Whatever Mortein is made up of now, bring back the original version.
Didn't work effectively
