I had a brand new lawn installed when I moved into my house 5 years ago and it was beautiful. In the coming years the lawn deteriorated into a weed patch. I tried many products and nothing worked to revive the lawn. I was on the verge of replacing it with artificial turf but decided to try this product in the Fall in hopes of finally having a decent lawn in the Spring. Well, at least where the grass outnumbered the weeds any way. When Spring came I couldn't believe how green and lush my lawn was. It looked even better than when it was first installed. This photo was taken at the beginning of April 2015.

Did you know that Scotts now uses the same bag and description but actually varies the chemical content from store to store? I purchased a 15k bag of the Turf Builder Winter Guard Plus 2 at a big box hardware store and discovered it was 28-0-3. The exact same 15 bag of Turf Builder Winter Guard Plus 2 a quarter mile down the street a major big box department store is 26-2-12. The 26-2-12 is typically a better product for Fall/Winter feedings to invigorate root growth. In addition, the big box hardware store has 15,000 square foot bags of Turf Builder Plus 2 (chemical content 28-0-4) for a substantial savings over the the Winter Guard plus 2. Again, this is the same store selling the Winter Guard Plus 2 that has the 28-0-3 product. That may not make much sense...but, that is what they are doing. In other words and in my opinion of the products available at this particular big box hardware store, the regular Turf Builder Plus 2 is a slightly better product for your fall/winter feeding. In my opinion, the best Scotts product for your lawn is the Turf Builder Winter Guard Plus 2 with the content of 26-2-12. Don't be fooled by the identical bags...read the label! I would also like to add that Scotts products still seem to provide superior and more even greening/feeding. But, they don't seem to kill the weeds as well as they did in the past. I have used Scotts products for over 30 years.

    Comments about Scotts 5M Turf Builder With Moss Control (38505):

    I read revs before buying all said within 24-48 hours the moss would die. It has been two weeks and nothing. I got two bags and coated the yard. I am going to buy ONE MORE bag and try again in another few weeks, as it says you have to wait some before next app but so far I am not happy at all with the product.

      Purchased 12 of these traps.

      Pro's: They are pet safe, easy to set and the rodent doesn't have to be touched to be disposed.

      Con's: 2 of the traps never worked out of the package... they will not stay open. The other 10 worked for about 3 months and all failed after catching 1 or 2 rodents. Now I have a dozen mouse traps that can't catch mice. It appears that these are a one time use product.

                        This particular trap is pitiful. We've used several throughout the house. Two packages - four traps - didn't set. They wouldn't stay set with minimal amounts of peanut butter. The first night it went off, it was empty but there was a small amount of blood in the bathroom, where it traveled. I have successfully killed one, and another I had to kill after it was trapped - totally alive, but trapped. I have had peanut butter eaten completely off without being set.

                        It's "safe" and that's about it. A small child could easily put his/her finger in the trap and feel mild pain.

                        Use the old school ones that actually kill.

                            These Snap Traps don't work! They don't stay open and the tension on them is terrible! What a waste of money! Now I have to waste the cost of a stamp to get my money back.

                                        I purchased enough product to treat three acres of Bermuda grass. The six large bags were purchased at a big name home center.

                                        When the bags were opened and poured into the spreader, the product was chunky with some solid masses. The chunks plugged up the opening in the bottom of the spreader after a few minutes of use and the spreader had to be emptied out and the bottom slot cleaned. This happened repeatedly.

                                        Eventually the Turf Builder had to be poured into a five gallon bucket and broken up with a large hammer before it would flow through the Scotts spreader. All 240 pounds of product was in the same condition. All of the store inventory was in the same condition and I picked out the six best bags from the forty plus that they had on the pallets

                                        The trouble I had was with the physical condition of the product as it was packaged. The product now has only been on the turf for twenty four hours and I am not yet sure of the chemical performance. I have always had good results from Scotts products, but I will not pay a PREMIUM PRICE for a product that is this difficult to use.

                                            Wouldn't recommend this type of trap - Doesn't close hard enough to kill the mouse and then you end up with a live / suffering mouse squeaking and clattering around in the trap.

                                              First saw these when I was looking for the old fashioned wooden mouse traps that I've used before and thought that the idea of an easier set up was pretty awesome. So I bought a few the next morning I woke up to 3 out of 4 traps with the bait eaten off of not triggered and a mouse caught but STILL ALIVE, head caught. Dissapointing that the trap did not do a quick kill, but instead allows the mouse to suffer. I'm going to be going back to the wood boards.

                                                  Bought two of these to try. Always have used the old style Victor traps my whole life. This style looked cool. Got them home cycled on of the traps a few times to get the feel for it. Tried to bait it and the trap wouldn't set. I would just snap shut. Didn't get my receipt as the thought of the product failing didn't cross my mind. I was dazzled by the new technology.

                                                      This is an extremely effective trap that is easy to use and cost efficient. I'm not a fan of reusing it, just because that grosses me out, so it's awesome that the price is so low. I set four in various locations around the house and in less than 18 hours, the mouse was caught! Thanks for a great, efficient product.

                                                        Had to apply twice to get it to remove most. I bought another brand that had double the active ingredients that did the job much better.

                                                            We had a few unwanted guests in our kitchen over the winter, and these traps took care of business.

Within 3 days, all of the moss turn black. I also had to make sure when I applied the product I had the proper overlap using my broadcast spreader. I highly recommend this product. I would also recommend contacting Scot for additional instructions too.

I noticed after a couple of days the bait was gone but the traps had not been set off. I decided to put a trail camera out there and to my surprise, I now have pictures of a mouse eating the bait. Trap was not set off. Do not buy unless you want to waste your money.

Unfortunately, half the number are impossible to set, wether setting before placing or setting after placement, the trap snaps. If it can't be set, it's useless. The price doubles when only half are usable.
