I have been using Orth Bug B-Gon for several years. It works. I live in central Texas and we have lots of creepy crawlers. A schedule is needed for this to work correctly. For me, the schedule is every four months I spread a bag over 3/4 acre. I use a common spreader with wheels - see video. We have lots of St. Augustine grass and many flower beds. I run up in the flower beds also. I think this has a secondary effect of getting rid of the fire ants also as their food source is messed up. I have no problem with loss of bees, butterflies or lady bugs. My vegetable garden and flowers do fine. Good product.

I was looking for a product that would be effective not only on grubs but all the other creepy-crawlies hiding in the lawn. In addition, I was weary of a product that was any more toxic to pets, etc. than it needed to be.This seems to check both those boxes. The bag covers 33,000 square feet, so it will last me well through the summer and into next spring. Hard to measure results but looking forward to a bug-free summer in my backyard!

Having St. Augustine grass I have learned to be pro-active instead of reactive. By the time you recognize a problems, you are not only playing catch up but it can be more expensive to solve problem that could have been prevented. I have approx. 5000 sq. feet of area to be treated. Which if applied correctly could provide six treatments. I have mostly used liquid type control, however in the summer, with the rainy season, I am concerned with too much dilution. Ortho has a very good reputation, so we will see. A 6-month control time frame is impressive. No, it won't kill everything. It does kill ants except for pharoah, carpenter, and harvester ants. Not mosquitos either. Warning, besides this being a poison, it may contain peanut by-products. Application rates on the bag are geared towards using a Scotts-type spreader, if you don't have one you will have to do some math. See pic. number 5, that is 3 lbs., this is lighter than typical fertilizer, wind is not your friend. Wear a mask and gloves. Also, mow your grass first. I don't normally bag my grass but this time I did, then applied the Ortho Bug B-gon, then ran the sprinkler on a normal cycle. Be sure to not water to the point of runoff. This is my pre-emptive strike to prevent future infestation. Read the back of the bag it has a lot of good information. Do yourself a favor, get ahead to stay ahead.

I use the ORTHO 20 LBS. BUG B GON LAWN INSECT GRANULES every year on all of my lawns to keep the bugs away. I start in the spring before the bugs come out of hibernation and keep up the applications throughout the year. I never seem to have any cinch bugs or other pests. I hate spiders and even though I have a woods in back of my house this seems to keep them away. I have had pro applications that didnt seem to work so I save money and apply myself. This way I actually know I have a superior product actually applied. I love Ortho and hope to keep using them for years to come.

This review maybe odd, but hopefully will help you. As one that answers questions and reviews HomeDepot products I have found that lately most answers are YES or NO to questions. Now that it is so cold and bleak outside here goes. Well most answers about this product can be answered by reading the bag! By law the bag label must contain how and where to use this product. The bag front has some info [see photo 1]. But the back has the most useable info. Just what bugs it kills, how to apply, how much to use for each application, what to use to apply, how to dispose of waist, when it is safe around kids and pets [see pic 2], how to use for vegetables, fruits, flowering plants and lawns, [see photo 3] and much more. This info is in English [see pic 4] and Spanish. Thus, when you need detailed info on this or any like product from HomeDepot look on the product for just what you need.

This is some very good insect control granules. I used it around the perimeter of the house and applied outwards into the rest of the front lawn. I have a pretty big front yard and this twenty pound bag covered the entire lawn. I used the excess to apply again around the base of the house to ensure insects would not get into the house. Easy to apply with the drop spreader.

Ortho 20 Pound Bug B-Gon Lawn Insect Granules will hopefully put a dent in my home insect problem. The list of pests this product kills is pretty extensive and I have high hopes it will work for what is buggin’ me. Anything I leave sitting outside for a few hours quickly become a residence for spiders and is the number one reason I don’t have patio furniture. Tiny spiders are easy to see all around the perimeter of my house and they often find their way through my poorly sealed 50 year old windows. Annually I deal with tiny ants that find their way into my bathroom and it turns into a war that can take months to win. I was told they are coming up through the slap foundation around the plumbing. The key to stopping them from coming inside is to catch them outside. The plan is to distribute heavily around the foundation and then spread progressively lighter as I move away from the house and into the yard. I have always had good luck with Ortho products and don't expect this to be any exception. The granules are easy to spread and the light color allows you to see how densely or sparsely you're getting it spread. The 20 pound bag should be enough to provide me with two 6-month applications.

I have used Ortho branded products more than any other and have had great success with them. This is the first instance of using this particular product in the Ortho line up. It Comes in a nice large bag about the size of small fertilizer bag, The granules are perfect size for use in a drop spreader whether in the push style or hand held for the more concentrated/hard to reach areas.

I’ve used this before and had really good results. I get grubs every year, and this stuff does the trick! If I don’t use it, the grubs eat my roots, and the animals dig up the grubs and my lawn is a mess. When using this stuff my lawn looks great! Unfortunately my lawn is covered in snow right now....and has been for a month or so. I can not wait for the spring!

This bag of insect killer from Otho can be spread by hand for smaller yards. I use a spreader to help cover my back and front yards. I put it down at the end of spring to help maintain bug control throughout the summer. I have pets and make sure that the granules are spread, the lawn is watered and most importantly dry before allowing my pets on the grass.
