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.

      We have newly established Bermuda Sod, almost ready for it's first cutting. Noticed Army worms, had some Diatomaceous Earth and sprinkled all over the yard, suppose to work in 24 hours, but it rained after 3 hours and washed it off. Went to WallyMart and bought 2 bags of Bug-B-Gone, hand dispersed all over yard yesterday morning, yard was very wet and sod couldn't take anymore water, so I did not put anymore water on it. Dew fell again last night, so I was hoping that would be enough water. This morning, I walked all around the yard and no sign of the hungry little critters...GONE!! Thank you, Thank you ORTHO!

        This product works great. It is easy to spread and starts going to work fast. I have a dog that would pick up fleas every time he went out. Now my yard stays flea free even with neighborhood and wild animals roaming through.

            I had tried this Insect Killer several times. I bought 7 bags, all the remaining bags the store had, seasonal left overs, for a great price. It did not kill ants in the lawn, but did a great job on ridding the others. The bag says to water in well. I called and inquired on the amount of water to be applied after spreading because I felt the instruction were vague. I was told about 1/2". That seems like a lot of water.

                    I put Bug-B-Gone every year in spring, then again in mid and again in early fall.. I not only apply to lawn for grub and other lawn problem bugs, but it also does a wonderful job in keeping fleas and even mosquitoes under control. I use the liquid hose end sprayer,ready to use formula. I also spray my vegetable plants in spring and again. in summer, IF I see any leaves being eaten on Tomatoes, Bell Peppers, Cucumbers, etc. This year, even with a wet cool spring, I have yet to see any bug infestation on my garden plants.

                            I have used this product in years past, with great success. I put it down, and water it in as directed. 2 weeks after doing my annual treatment this year I have ant infestations everywhere. Front and Back yard. They were swarming all over the ground in the front yard today, carrying larvae, probably to the new nests that they have built. I'm irritated, as I had no major signs of ants prior to the application. Now it is so bad I won't let the kids or the dog in the yard until they are all gone. It's like a Hitchcock movie, but worse. As I stated, I have used this in the past with success. I will try it one more time. Right now, however, I'm an angry customer.

                              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"

                                      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.

                                        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!

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.
