Hartz Ultraguard vs HOT SHOT Bed Bug and Flea Fogger

Hartz Ultraguard vs HOT SHOT Bed Bug and Flea Fogger


Bed bugs are tiny little bugs that you won’t often unless you catch them in the act. They live in dark corners of your furniture and they won’t be able to come out until it’s completely dark. You don’t be able to see them during the day unless there is a large population of them. Plus, waking up with “mysterious bites” might be a sign that bedbugs are usually inside your home.

So what will it take to get rid of them? We’ll be taking a look at the bed bug bomb review and compare two of the best solutions on the market. We’ll discuss each of them in detail and determine which one will be best for you based on a few factors (i.e.--best for your budget, most effective, etc.).

Bed Bug Bomb Reviews

We’ll be taking a look at two bed bug bombs that are considered the most popular on the market. While they both have an intent and purpose to kill bed bugs and fleas inside your home, they do differ in some ways. Plus, past buyers have had a preference between one of the others. Let’s take a look at the first bed bug bomb on our list:

Hartz UltraGuard Plus Flea & Tick Home Spray

Hartz UltraGuard Plus Flea & Tick Home Spray


First on the list, we’ll be taking a look at the Hartz UltraGuard Plus Flea & Tick Home Spray. Hartz is considered to be one of the best names when it comes to your pets. They have long been the champions of providing excellent flea and tick protection. So it comes as no surprise that they are among one of the popular brands on our review list.

This comes in a 16 ounce (or 22 ounce) bottle with a proven formula to kill fleas, ticks, eggs, larva, pupae and even bed bugs as well. On top of that, it also has an odor eliminator that will get rid of any odor that may be sitting on your furniture. When it comes to odors, it’s prime real estate for ticks, fleas, and bed bugs. Plus, once the odors are eliminated they are gone for good. And it will reduce any risk of re-infestation.

This is a great spray if you are looking for a quick and easy solution to get rid of all the bed bugs and other bugs throughout your home. Plus, it’s the perfect solution to protect your pets and also others living in your home. No more bed bugs biting, no infestation, no problem.

HOT SHOT Bedbug & Flea Fogger


Next, we’ll be taking a look at the HOT SHOT Bedbug and Flea Fogger. This is available in a pack of one or six foggers. This might be what you need if you are looking for a bedbug bomb that might be able to cover every nook and cranny of your home. You can apply this to some of the rooms where you know the infestation can get really bad (i.e.--bedrooms).

This contains an ingredient known as Nylar. The purpose of Nylar is to inhibit any flea, tick, or bedbug re-infestation of up to seven months. And what’s even better is that each can of HOT SHOT can cover up to 2,000 cubic feet. So if you have rooms that are within that window of measurement, this could be the best product that you can use (especially if you plan on treating multiple rooms).

If you are planning a wall-to-wall treatment of your home then you may want to consider using these (especially the pack of six that is available if you have a larger home). The better coverage you’ll have for each room, the better you’ll be able to end the infestation and keep it that way for a long time.

Buyer’s Guide

As mentioned, these are two of the best bedbug bombs on the market. But the question is: which one will fit you best. We’ve decided which one will be best for anyone looking for a budget option, which one might be more effective, and which one might be better used for the long-term. Here is a brief guide that will help you make an easy decision:

Best For The Money:

If you are on a budget and want a more cost-effective solution, the Hartz Ultraguard Pro will be your best option. While it is effective in providing a long-term solution in terms of killing bedbugs, fleas, and ticks it’s also quite affordable whether you purchase the 16 or 22-ounce bottle. Either way, you save a good amount of money in the process.

Most Effective:

While both products can be able to end infestations with an application or two, we give the HOT SHOT Bedbug and Flea Fogger the edge. The reason being of course is that it will contain ingredients that will more than likely kill bedbugs the second they are exposed to it. Plus, the Nylar will remain in the area to prevent any kind of infestations from happening for a long period of time.

Safest For Humans and Pets:

For this, we’ll be giving the nod to the Hartz Ultraguard Pro. You can be able to apply this in any room and won’t have to deal with any harmful chemicals that may affect your health or the health of your pets. In other words, you won’t have to leave your house and wait a few hours for the treatment to be completed.

Of these two bedbug bombs, we hope this review will help you make a more informed decision on which one will be best for you. It’s important to get rid of bedbugs (and other pests) inside your home so you and your family can live free from infestations. Consider one of these options and choose one depending on your needs and preferences.
