    Good Deal!

    By Jerry on 12/21/2011

    After checking around, this was by far the best deal that I found. Shipping was fast and arrived in good condition. I plan to use this in the spring when growing season begins (it's now December). Spinosad was effective in previous use with another brand at a higher price. This should be just as good, although I won't know for sure until spring. I had no problems getting my order quickly and would recommend this company.

Q
Will Spinosad Landscape and Garden Insecticide RTS kill garden snakes via ingesting treated insects?

Currently I have small garden snakes that eat slugs but they can't keep up with the slug population. I don't want to damage the snakes by using the spinosad.

A

The amount of Spinosad in the Spinosad Landscape and Garden Insecticide RTS is really only enough to harm the small insects it is listed for and should not harm a snake.

Q
Will Spinosad Landscape and Garden Insecticide RTS kill lawn fungus?

This was recommended to help get rid of lawn fungus.

A

No, Spinosad Landscape and Garden Insecticide RTS is not labeled for fungus in your lawn. It is labeled for various pests, including caterpillars.

We would recommend using Honor Guard PPZ Fungicide for fungus on your lawn. You will 0.5 - 4 oz per 1000 square feet. For the best recommendations, you will need to identify exactly what type of fungus is affecting your lawn so that you may find ways to adjust the conditions that are favoring the growth of that disease.
