Cutworms eating my garden and newly seeded lawn

I really wish I could upload a video I captured of a cutworm half way out of his hole eating a granule. He was writhing around all pathetic, while i was laughing maniacally. His dead homeboy was laying beside him. I had just spread the granules last night and was inspecting today. Funny thing is that cutworms usually only come out at night. There were several dead beetles on the patio also. This stuff is working very well!!!! Scotts, please allow video uploads!

I evenly spread this product throughout my yard and let the rain water it down as I do not have a hose. I bought this product to get rid of the ticks in my yard. Fleas were not listed on the bag but I had hoped it killed them too but it doesn't but I wanted those ticks gone for sure. It has been 4 days and I am still finding ticks. The bag states that it is suppose to start working immediately. The number of ticks found each day has not even gone down. I do not recommend this product for ticks. I don't know how well it is for the other insects listed since I do not have a problem with insects except fleas and ticks.

No better product-Ortho Max Granules

    • Lawn Maintenance

    Comments about Scotts® Ortho Bug B Gon Max® Insect Killer Granules (0167050):

    Max is by far the best product to use to get rid of spiders, grubs, fleas and ticks. As a veterinary pharma rep, I knew Lyme disease was spreading into our area. We have been able to get our ticks under control and also our moles have left as we have controlled the grubs. Our yard has a heavy infestation as we live in a heavily wooded area. If you still have problems with ticks after applying this product, chances are it was not applied properly or watered in thoroughly following application. Wonderful product and I have recommended it to numerous friends and family!!!

          This is the only product I have found that stops SQV's. I apply it at the end of the growing season and rotitiller in, then in early March along with fertilizer, and then again in mid April and rototiller it in. After the squash plants start to grow I use a spray bottle and spray each plant once a week with the liquid mix. "IT WORKS"

            Comments about Scotts® Ortho Bug B Gon Max® Insect Killer Granules (0167050):

            I think it helps if you soak the lawn, then put this down one day before a rain (we have sandy soil along the coast, for me, it seems to boost the effectiveness and minimizes the runoff). I also used (4) 10lb. bags in a Scotts EdgeGuard spreader on 6 1/2, for a lawn that was 11,000 sq. ft. It says 4lbs. per 1000 square feet for 3 month protection. It was $10 per bag with a $10 rebate. For me, up in the NE, the little black and red ants seem the toughest to control. Perhaps the Bug B Gon needs to penetrate the nest which can be 3" under the ground before controlling, over 20,000 ants a colony can produce? It is a decent product if you apply it at the 4/1000 rate. You can't cheap out and buy 1 bag for 15,000 sq. feet and spread it on number 3. If you apply it in May, then you are good until August and you can apply again in September and be good until winter.

                Bought two 10 lb bags from Lowes on 5/23 and applied with the Scott's edge guard per the instructions. After a week, I still have just as many large red and black ants digging up the yard.

                  I applied this per the instructions for "season long control" over about a 500 sq foot area and it seemed to work on the ants after a few days. We went on vacation for a week and now there are more ants than before! I don't understand how the product could be so ineffective. I had the same issue last year, but assumed I used it incorrectly, so I made sure I followed the instructions this year.

                    We have a flea problem the is being very difficult to solve. I bought Ortho Bug B Gone for lawns hoping it would be the answer. It was not! I applied it according to the directions. I even watched the little video to make sure I was doing it correctly. I was. I did 2 applications because the first one had no effect on the fleas. As it turns out neither did the second one.I actually came to this site to try to find out how to go about getting my money back,since I noticed on the package,there is a money back guarantee.

                        Applied this fairly heavy to the entire yard as per instructions, especially in the areas where the ants (incl. fire ants) were active. 5 days later, while mowing, was bitten several times by ants. Every anthill is still active. I don't know about other insects, but this stuff does nothing for ants. Also, this stuff contains a lot of dust, be sure to wear a mask if you use it. Last time I used the stuff made specifically for fire ants and it worked well.

                                        This is the second year that I have used this. I live in Georgia and the summers, which seem to last for 3 of the four seasons, used to be miserable with bugs, especially fleas. I was spending government type loads of cash to keep my dogs from from being flea bait. Between the orkin man, flea collars and the drops that are poured on their backs I was spending more on my dogs health than mine. One bag of Max lasted me a year. Half a bag before the season and half a bag in the middle. No more fleas, ticks or any of the other little bugs that had been setting up summer camp in my yard. This stuff will be in my shed forever!

                                                I applied as directed on the bag and did not notice any significant reduction of ants, spiders, or ticks. Waste of money in my opinion.

                                                  Product was easy to use, but to was not as effective as i was led to believe. My lot size was 7,000 sq. ft. including the house. Subtracting the house that made the application area 5500 sq ft. I applied product knocked ants down a bit with minimal effect on crickets. 30 days later back in the store looking for something to take them out all the way. Bag said 10,000 sq ft so my application was just about double recommend level. Looking for concentrated liquid for sprayer on hose any suggestions.

                                                              My dog had some ticks which we thought were coming from the back yard. We called a pest control company to come out and spray but the dog kept getting the ticks. I bought a bag of Bug-B-gone and we haven't seen any ticks since.

He was writhing around all pathetic, while i was laughing maniacally. His dead homeboy was laying beside him. I had just spread the granules last night and was inspecting today. Funny thing is that cutworms usually only come out at night. There were several dead beetles on the patio also. This stuff is working very well!!!! Scotts, please allow video uploads!

Someone suggested I treat my yard as well. I used the Ortho Max according to the directions, and it's wonderful. Usually when I walk through the grass with Gus on a cool morning, I see all manner of insects leaping out of the grass as we go. The morning after applying the Ortho Max, voila! I didn't see a single insect. Awesome!

I don't want the ticks to have a short death ride on my little buddy, so three years ago we tried this product. It made such a tremendous difference, that I wouldn't be without it! Just be sure to follow the directions, and begin up against your home, circling outward to your property's edge. This chases the little buggers away as you go.
