Product Description

Pattern Name: Case Pack of 1

Product Description

Keep bugs where they belong: out of your home. The Hot Shot unscented hanging insect repellent kills flying and crawling insects with a penetrating, odorless vapor. Just hang or stand the strip up in attics, garages, storage areas and other spaces, including boats, RVs and cabins (when not in use). One unit will treat a 10 by 13 foot room with an 8 foot ceiling for up to 4 months.

Clean, Odorless Insect Protection

Kill flying and crawling bugs in attics, garages, storage spaces, boats, RVs, and cabins with Hot Shot No-Pest Strip. This hanging insect repellent uses advanced controlled-release technology to slowly diffuse a deep, penetrating vapor throughout the enclosed treatment space for up to four months. Its clean, odorless vapor is evenly distributed, killing both visible and hidden insects on contact and preventing new insect infestations.

Because it continuously emits vapor, Hot Shot No-Pest Strip is designed to be used in areas occupied by people less than four hours per day, such as garages, attics, or sheds. You can also hang one in your vacation home, cabin, mobile home, or boat while it's not being used.

Use Recommendations

One Hot Shot No-Pest Strip will treat a 10-by-13-foot enclosed room with an 8-foot ceiling. When more than one strip is required--such as larger rooms--keep the strips at least 10 feet apart. Treatment usually lasts for four months; replace with a new, fresh, full-strength strip at the end of four months. Hot Shot No-Pest Strip should not be used around food or in food-handling areas.

Before using a treated room or area that has not been occupied for a while (such as a vacation home or RV), remove Hot Shot No-Pest Strips and open doors and windows for a few hours to allow any lingering vapor to dissipate.

Controlling Insects

Hot Shot No-Pest Strips work against both flies and mosquitoes. For flying insect control specifically, hang or stand the strip in the middle of your treatment area, away from windows. You can even use the strip inside your trash dumpster if you're having a fly problem there. Stand up one strip inside your dumpster and keep the lid on the dumpster closed.

Do not use the strip around edibles.

Okay... so I read the other reviews in regards to not using this in "living" areas... I read several of them... but you know what.. I was desparate, and desperate times called for desperate measures...

I had already had a mild fruit fly problem in my small apartment (about 750 square feet).. and like a bubblehead... I left one morning in a hurry after making a smoothie and neglected to clean up.. I managed to leave a few strawberries on the counter right next to an unfinished glass of wine.. I then left and didn't return for about three days..

I came home to the Fruit-FlyAgeddon.. Fruit-Apocolypse... It was HORRIBLE. I spent the entire weekend, swatting flies away from my face, my laptop screen, vacuuming them from my television screen.. vacuuming them from various areas they would land.. I spent hours over the course of a weekend waving my vacuum hose around in my living room like some cracked out Ninja with a lame sword trying in vain to suck up the little mutants as they flit around my apartment...

And then it happened... I went to open my bedroom window.. and there it was. The Fruit Fly Village.. in my bedroom window.. hundreds of them... milling about. Shopping, playing, singing, dining.. mocking me...

It was 20 degrees outside and I had to sleep with a fan blowing towards me to keep the little mutants from landing on me while I tried in vain to sleep beneath Fruit Fly Village.. I literally cried myself to sleep. Because I realized.. those little freaks had been in my apartment.. all along. Just waiting for me to mess up.. and I did..

I fought them over the long Thanksgiving Weekend.. and first tried the vinegar/dishsoap thing.. I freaked out when I saw all the bodies floating.. but the vinegar just seemed to draw them out..

Hello, I'm land surveyor and am constantly in the woods with the ticks and chiggers. I have learned that if you break this open, cut in half and run shoelaces through each piece you can place around ankle of boot which will give you a very good tick and chigger repellent for about 2-3 months. I never spray with anything else, just this. Ticks will crawl on me for just a little bit but then will die. Can't hardly smell this after opened so it doesn't smell like the sprays. Completely kills chiggers, which is a very big plus to me, and the only place that the ticks will bite in is around the shoulder and up. Since I don't want to wear one as a collar I can stand one or two bites a week.

I was told this was an amazing product -- However then I found the following ..

WARNING : This can only be used in rooms "Occupied by people for LESS than 4 hours per day".

!!!

Please take note as I heard this does work -- but you can't be in that particular room / area for more than 4 hours a day -- INCLUDING pets I'm sure.. I returned mine because I was going to use it in my apt - where my cat lives, I sleep and do sales work at. Thank goodness I read the back of packages.

THE RETURN : Amazing .. They refunded everything including shipping costs.

FYI

Heres the only method I've found that works and kills 100% of spider mites and aphids inside my indoor garden.
When the lights are out, Shut off the vent fans but leave the oscillating fans on.
Hang one or two traps ON the fan inside the room overnight.
Turn on the vent fans when the lights come on. Usually one night and all the bugs are twitching and dieing.
Might take 2 or 3 nights depending on conditions and amount of bugs.
If all the bugs are dead, Remove these strips and store them in a sealed container. I use a old mason jar.

Worked for my spider mite and aphids infestation.

The insecticide inside these traps are no joke. Remove the traps and air out the room at least a week, preferably 2 weeks before harvest.
DO NOT stick your head inside and take a big puff. Your throat will be irritated for the next few hours.

Have not had any noticeable decrease in yield or quality aside from the bug damage.
Leaves no residue nor does it alter any flavors.

Bottom line. This is poison. Treat it like poison. Use common sense.
We're all surrounded by pesticides and other harmful chemicals. Use common sense.

When all methods have failed. Bust out the no pest strips.

These will not work effectively in an environment where the air is constantly changing. Such as a porch.

CAUTION: Do not get in Mouth. Harmful if swallowed. After prolonged storage, a small amount of liquid may form on strip.

I had a spider mite invasion in my indoor garden twice,(several months apart, so not a re-infestation) and both times by using No-Pest strip they not only were stopped in their tracks dead as adults, they also only made it a few steps from the eggs before dying. I confirmed the effectiveness by using a microscope to check for any living bugs....not one after I put the strip inside the garden.

Highly recommend with the understanding that it's effectiveness likely is proportionate to the fume concentration in the room. Larger space will require more strips. Good luck and keep on growin!
