Moms. We are pretty amazing, you know that? We can magically heal imaginary illnesses armed with little more than bandaids and wet washcloths. We can whip up a classroom snack (that we were just told is due this morning) supplied with merely a box of cheese sticks and a sharpie marker. We can explain common core math to our hopelessly confused kiddos with just a Google search and a PhD in Astrophysics...okay, so we’re still working on that one. And when our precious munchkins scream bloody murder because there is a swarm of sugar ants in their bathroom, we can use Hot Shot® Ant & Roach Plus Germ Killer2. to save the day! Oh yes–we are nothing short of amazing. One could say that we MOMS are the hotshots around here!
I was downstairs when I heard the screams coming from the boys’ bathroom. With my heart in my throat and my adrenaline pumping, I flew up our staircase with the supernatural agility of a caffeinated puma. What on earth had happened? Was someone hurt? Was someone bleeding? Was there a zombie in the bathroom, or worse, a creepy clown? I couldn’t even begin to imagine what would cause my boys to scream like that—and then I saw the. They were covering the bathroom baseboard and I had to stifle my own blood-curdling scream. My boys were counting on me to save them from these beasts, so I had to keep calm and kill the bugs. Isn’t that how the saying goes? Keep Calm and Kill the Bugs? 😉 I sent my boys’ to the safety of their bedroom and grabbed a can of Hot Shot® Ant & Roach Plus Germ Killer2 to handle the situation.
The ants were coming in underneath the windowsill, traveling along the window sash, down to the floor, across the baseboard, and up the side of the sink vanity. They seemed to be attracted by the scent of the boys’ bubblegum flavored toothpaste. I sprayed the ants which were located along the baseboard and window sill according to the package instructions. Note: The instructions on this product say it, “Kills Cockroaches, Ants, Carpenter Ants, Crickets, Firebrats, Fleas, Silverfish and Spiders (except Brown Recluse Spiders).” I washed the sink with bathroom cleaner and drown the rest of the ants on the sink with water. To prevent a re-infestation, I switched out the boys’ toothpaste and sprayed beneath the sink and along the bathroom baseboards. Be sure to follow all of the package instructions regarding how to apply the product.
It has been several weeks since I treated the bathroom and so far so good! We have not seen any reappearances of any six-legged (or million legged) intruders. Hot Shot® products take pride in providing homeowners with solutions that help keep their homes free of pests, at a value price point. Let’s face it, a beautiful home filled with bugs is not a beautiful home! And why pay more for bug solutions if you don’t have to? I like that HotShot® products are much less expensive than competing brands.
