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.
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.
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…
Great and effective for getting rid of pesky flies
We have used this before in the past when we have had excessive flying insects in our home, especially fruit flies. The instructions say to not use this near people, but I haven’t noticed any negative effects. That being said, I still try to hang them in a spot that is not heavily traveled so that no one walks by a huge concentrated cloud of whatever. It is very effective and gets ride of insects fairly quickly. We have even saved it for later by putting it in a sealed bag until we needed to use it again. Great simple solution to flies.
Seems to work…
But we cleaned and bombed the place as a precaution to moving in so these are a precaution. No bugs noticed in the basement or garage where we hung them. There are some on the opposite side of our two car garage so am thinking about trying to mount one there after cleaning and seeing if that helps at all.
PERFECT – No Spiders….
PERFECT!!! You can’t find these anymore. I was sooo pleased when I spotted them on AMAZON. They are perfect in my furnace area so that spiders don’t crawl into the furnace when it is off over the summer and cause issues come Fall/Winter. I will keep ordering these every 3-4 months like clock work.
Works great for fruit flies!
Kills fruit flies! Hung this by my fruit basket…at the end of the day, no more fruit flies. They were dead on the floor. I put it in the cabinet where I keep my kitchen trash can when I notice some fruit flies in there…the next day…all dead. I even put it in my giant carved jack-o-lantern pumpkin, which was full of fruit flies…all dead. I love this thing!
This product is better than using sprays
This product is better than using sprays. Great for the crawl spaces because it will kill swarmers (flying termites and carpenter ants) before they can become established. However, it will do nothing to existing colonies. If you already have termites and carpenter ants, you need a professional.
Worked like a charm
Worked like a charm! I keep one of these in my garage so I don’t have to worry about critters (especially black widow spiders) nesting in my long storage items like Christmas ornaments and stuff. I change out once every season.
