        A:  I really don't know since I use it quite a bit, this is the first time I have gotten a 10 # jug, in the past I could only get the smaller jugs

        by|Aug 14, 2020

        A:  I'm anticipating the 10 lb container will last several years, as long as stored with cap on and out of direct sunlight. Spinosad should be shelf stable for an extended period.

          A:  years if kept dry. I have had several pounds for 5 years and it appears to have no degradation

              It serves the purpose but I felt it was not effective for longer time. I could see the snails crawling around in just 5 days. May be it works in longer run spraying regularly.

              Didn't work for me in Southern California. Smelled strong and herbaceous, but snails were on it an hour later. Direct spraying didn't seem to bother them either.

                It works very well when I spray it. BUT in 4-6 hours all the snails are back. I had a problem with one spray nozzle plugging. I called Monterey and they immediately Fed Ex me 4 NEW nozzles and some other product to try,. EXCELLENT customer Service. I was impressed.

                Cheaper to buy two 5 lb jugs!
                C'mon Home Depot, 10% cheaper to buy two 5 lb containers than a single 10 lb? Less expensive and more plastic waste! Do better.
