    Works as stated

    By Therrmos on 07/05/2015

    I got this product to fight earwigs, slugs, snails and ants. After getting it I spread it out in the yard at about 4 pm, by 10 pm the bait was covered in earwigs. They were both eating and carrying it away. Slugs and snails have eaten it and died almost on the spot. The damage to my plants has gone down drastically. After applying it for ants, I have seen them immediately start to eat it and carry it away and they have seemed to dwindle in numbers. My two dogs do not seem to have an interest in the product at all. So far this is an outstanding product that works very well.

    Only thing I ever found to eliminate silverfish

    By Mahesh on 07/09/2015

    I would disagree with the previous reviewer that this product is not suitable for indoor use - maybe it's a problem if you have pets, but after many years trying multiple products this is the only thing that eliminated my problem with silverfish in my toilet and closets. I scatter a little bit close to the walls.

    Great Product for Slugs

    By David on 07/02/2016

    I found a lot of slime trails in the shaded area of grass, landscaping and along the walkway to the house. I found slugs in the termite bait traps as well. I decided on this product just to target slugs. I purchased two 4lb. containers and simply sprinkled the granules all around the house, shed and the shaded areas. In two days there are no more slug slime trails. MotherEarth Scatter Bait also targets a plethora of other pests (found under description of product) which is a plus for me. I highly recommend this product for slugs and snails. Forget about all those other controls (beer, garlic or coffee grounds) as this product not only targets slugs, but a host of other insect problems. Good luck!

Q
If the MotherEarth Granular Scatter Bait becomes wet is it ineffective ?

When applying outside, if it becomes wet is it ineffective ? Should one apply during periods of dry weather outside ? Also if used in attics, how long is the product effective for in that area ?

A
The Mother Earth Scatter bait can get a bit wet but would need to be reapplied after several light or one heavy rain event as the food based attractants will start to degrade and the product can be washed away. You can apply the bait every 7 days as necessary.

Q
My dog licked MotherEarth granular scatter bait off the patio, will this harm her?

MotherEarth Granular was spread around my house yesterday and this morning. I noticed my dog licking it off the patio where some had fallen. I interrupted her after a short period of time.

A
The small amount of Mother Earth Scatter Bait your dog may have licked up should have no effect. To be safe however, we do recommend that you call your veterinarian for advice. You can find a copy of the product label and the MSDS on our site, information your veterinarian will require.

Q
The area around my house has become infested with Alleghany Mound ants. Nothing I do seems to work.

MotherEarth Granular was recommended. Will it attract and kill these ants? Will they carry it back to their nest? Their mounds are very difficult to find, so I need to be able to cover a large area.

A
We recommend doing a direct application of a residual insecticide such as Tengard SFR to the mound. Using a shovel, scrape away the top of the mound and pour one gallon of the diluted Tengard into the mound. Unfortunately we cannot find one bait that has been labeled for Alleghany Mound ants.
