As always, I give my readers a heads up to sponsored content: this is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Hot Shot® Insecticides.
So most of you know already that we are temporarily living with my dad until our home is ready in South Carolina. And that means pulling our weight around here to help out with a few things here and there to make life a little easier for him. He lives alone and the house is a bit large for him so it felt good to help out.
Yes, that includes killing bugs. Don’t let bugs feel at home!
Seriously, who wants bugs in their house? Not me!
Anyway…while my husband and Mabel were playing in the pool, what was I doing? Scoping around the house planning my attack on bugs with my new bottles of Hot Shot®.
And here’s what I found that needed to be addressed:
There are a handful of wasp nests all around the house. Yikes!
Another wasp nest.
So…to deal with the wasps, I’m going to hit them with the Hot Shot® Wasp and Hornet Spray. It kills immediately and then 24 hours later I can knock the little nests down.
Our kitchen window.
Now I know there doesn’t look like anything too terribly wrong with this picture. But during the spring and summer months, sometimes ants tend to make their way in through this window. To deal with this, I’m planning on taking the ivy down since I think it’s a highway for the ants to make easy access to the window. Then, I’ll go inside and spray Hot Shot® Ant and Roach (we don’t have a roach problem but the product works on both!) along the window frame to prevent any access. Since there currently aren’t any ants, this is a great preventative measure.
Maybe I’ve found a new career as an exterminator?
Probably not, but it’s great to know that I can take care of all of this own my own and not have to pay the cost of hiring someone. Score!

What type of bug urks you the most? Spiders are my #1 enemy…and for all you long time readers, remember my friend from last summer? Haha!
