Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rich Don't buy this unless you enjoy throwing your money away.
Made of rolled cardboard with plastic ends. No chance of working as designed except under absolutely dry conditions, i.e., grass and ground bone dry. Moisture immediately dampens the milky spore powder and clogs the holes in the dispenser, rendering it unusable. Worse still, moisture immediately begins softening the dispenser end of the cardboard tube causing it to collapse. When tested on a dry surface before actual use, it did not come close to dispensing a level teaspoon of powder, is it is supposed to do.
Save your money, avoid this product and use a kitchen teaspoon to measure out and drop the powder on the ground.

Not what I expected, better to use a fertilizer spreader.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Not Durable
The cardboard tube is not durable if used on even slightly damp grass. The applicator end of the card board tube became wet and started to crumple. In addition the "Milky Spore" powder became clogged in the plastic applicator end due the dampness of the grass and soil. It was very difficult to get the proper amount of "Milky Spore" onto the lawn even if it had not kept clogging up. I had waited an least 8 hours after the most recent rain prior to the application and a few hours prior to the next rain.

I doubt it will last the season and it's the first of August. Not easy to load. Cardboard? Come on.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by EP37 Milkey spore powder applicator tube
End fell off after a few minutes use. Duck taped back on. Paper tube then started disintegrating at end. Very poor and cheaply made. Dollar for dollar this no doubt the worst purchase I ever made.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rick It fell apart the 1st time I used it
Bought it from Home Depot on line (Thank GOD). purchased the applicator fm HD online $9.99 plus shipping & tax. The 1st time I used it it fell apart. It's made of cheap carboard w/ a paper cover. I didn't finish with the bag of Milky Spore before the tube split. I had to tape it w/ duck tape in order to finish the application. Called HD and they refunded the entire amount including shipping.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KristyB Makes job easier
I applied Milky Spore at my house without the tube and it took a long time. Found this online, don't know why its not in the store. I used it to apply the Milky Spore powder at my mom's place and it made the job much easier and faster. Just shook the tube every 3 or 4 feet as the directions stated. The tube is made of cardboard but it held up well for me. I would recommend it.
