    What kind of bug spray are you talking about? Bug repellent spray or the Raid-type of bug spray?
    Raid is sold in compressed gas cans, and is considered a hazardous waste.

    It releases greenhouse gases as well as a variety of poisons into the atmosphere. It isn’t good for the atmosphere, but it is effective. It also depends on what bug spray you’re talking about-they have different chemical compositions.
