As soon as the weather gets warm we get a huge infestation of ants.

I’ve come to believe that our house was built on a giant ant hill. True or not, it sure feels that way. I have a thing with bugs… they are not welcome in or around my home. We do a lot of the below in our home… cuddling with pets. No bugs allowed! Even thought of that creepy crawlies in my home makes me want to run for the hills and take my kiddos and pets with me. I’m not alone with this right? Hot Shot® Insecticides bring me both comfort and peace of mind getting rid of unwanted pests. 

Hot Shot® Insecticides is a friendly, approachable and family-oriented brand.


When we are not hanging out enjoy our pest free home, we love to entertain!

We had some friends and family over for Fourth of July s’mores… and a couple days before the big event I saw ants making a straight line for my kitchen and back patio. Out came the Hot Shot and the bug problem was solved instantly. Days later during the actual party, there was not an ant in sight! I even went on an ant hunt to show you any that were left and I couldn’t find a single one in the areas we sprayed for. 

Hot Shot® Insecticides takes pride in providing homeowners with solutions that help to keep their homes free of pests.


S’mores are super sticky so this was a real test… would the ants come back once word got out about the s’mores? Nope! Not even one!

It’s a fun and easy way to weigh in on who actually does the deed (Mom or Dad) in your house when it comes to keeping bugs from feeling at home. Be sure to hop on over there and enter!

  • The smores look delicious- luckily you were able to get rid of the ants before breaking out the goodies! Our condo always has a few wasps flying around, but thats really it. New building is nice!

  • I believe my house is built on an ant hill as well! Fire ants!! I actually have a bottle of the wasp and hornet spray next to my night stand as home protection for intruders! Hopefully I never need to use it for that!

  • Can’t handle bugs, yay for pest control! Never have a problem with anything but little tiny ants once a year and Hot Shot has taken care of it for me in no time.

  • Lately there have been so many bugs in and around our house that we almost called an exterminator.. I will check this out so we do not have to do that.

  • Everything creepy crawly bothers me lol. We seem to get an ant problem every Spring but we take care of them and then they are gone. Those smores look yummy. =)

  • Bugs don’t generally bother me outside, but I don’t want them near the inside of my house… Thanks for sharing.

  • We can’t get enough of this stuff. Thanks for sharing yet another brand for us to try out!

  • Nothing is worse than summer bugs! Glad that Hot Shot provides a great product to deter bugs.

  • The obvious answer is cockroaches, but since I’ve never had them in my house, I’ll choose from things that have plagued me. So I despise earwigs!!! I absolutely can’t stand them.

  • Fruit flies and ants drive me insane during the summer. We are having a horrid time with them this year. I’ve tried everything I normally try and it’s just not working. I might have to give this stuff a try.

  • I can not stand ants. The are one of the most bothersome bugs. I love hot shot insecticides. They work great. Thanks for sharing.

  • bugs do bother me and we have an exterminator but they are still plentiful. I often have to spot treat thanks for this post.

  • Deeply hate mosquitoes but right ow we have a gnats infestation and we have tried everything. I think I need to check if hot shot has a product for them.
