|What outdoor pest control spray do you recommend is the best for the dry, desert region? I have problems with scorpions and ants, along with the usual beetles and outdoor roaches. Thank you.

|I use a product called Home Defense by Ortho and spray around the foundation of my home. I spray once in the spring and once in the fall and it keeps all the insect pests on the outside rather than the inside of my home. There are some products you can use on your landscape but you'll want to avoid using them in the spring and the fall when plants are blooming and bees are busy pollinating the flowers. Whatever you use, be sure to follow label directions.
