This stuff is great! I have a major problem with slugs. They can wipe out a garden of flowers in a mere night! Hi Yield stops them immediately and lasts for months. I am considering finding another product for Japanese Beetles!
I live in Fl. and it's difficult to find 3 days with no rain but I went ahead & used he bait after a morning rain. It didn't rain that day but did the net. I'm a believer in this product. It's been about 10 days & the slugs are gone from a bed that was infested with them & the snail population is greatly reduced. Thank you, Pat Howard
This is my second year in a row using Hi Yield and I'm definitely a customer for life!!! I'll be buying this stuff for as long as they'll be selling it! I purchased my first home a little over a year ago in CT and unfortunately found out about our slug problem the hard way (as if there's an easy way). Anyways, I planted beautiful Dahlias, only to have them absolutely destroyed by these disgusting little pests. They were everywhere!!! I tried all sorts of home remedies; beer, pennies, egg shells, coffee grounds and Epsom salt. All to no avail. After further research, I came across "Do My Own Pest Control" and was easily directed right to the Hi Yield product. I ordered it at an extremely reasonable price and received it less than a week later. After applying, which was very easy, I noticed waaay less slugs within a day! After about 3 days, they were gone! This year, less than half of the amount of slugs as last year, have come back. However, after another application, they're completely gone! Maybe next year I won't have any! It's still hard to believe that this product has worked as well as it has, because I still find myself going out at night, in search of the slimy pests and I'll search for a while, thinking I'm going to find at least one, but NOTHING!!!!.....ZIP, ZERO, ZILCH! Buy this product, you've got nothing to lose, but you do have a beautiful lawn/garden/flower bed to gain!!
