About This Product

Scotts MossEx controls moss without harming your lawn. After you apply MossEx it will attack undesirable moss, causing it to turn black and disappear. It also contains nutrients to green your lawn and develop thick grass. Apply Scotts MossEx in the winter or spring when moss is actively growing. It is best applied when the lawn is moist and tall grass has been mowed to expose low growing moss. We recommend using a Scotts spreader to apply this product. For Scotts rotary/broadcast spreaders, use a setting of 2 ¼ for the regular rate or 2 ¾ for the heavy rate. For Scotts drop spreaders, use a setting of 4 for the regular rate or 4 ½ for the heavy rate. For Scotts Wizz, use a setting of 3 ¼ for the regular rate and 3 ¾ for the heavy rate. If additional treatments are needed, wait 2 to 4 weeks between applications. Please note, grass blades may turn black temporarily; however, this condition will disappear after mowing. One 18.37 lb. bag of Scotts MossEx treats up to 5,000 sq. ft.

        Q:The bag says it will hunt my dogs, how long after it rains can my dogs walk in the treated area?
        by|Apr 22, 2023
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  After applying Scotts MossEx, pets, such as cats and dogs, should stay out of treated areas until it is thoroughly dry. If you are unsure if the product is dry, wait 24 hours before allowing pets to reenter the treated area. Once the area has dried, rain/water will not dislodge the product or cause it to reactivate.

          Didn't work in the summer
          We applied this the first week of July (a little over a month ago). There is no visible change in the moss. We followed the directions on the package. From these reviews, I've learned that the air temperature is important. But, there is nothing about air temperature in the instructions. :-( Guess we wasted our time and money. Haven't decided if we'll try when it gets cooler or not.

          We're sorry to read about your disappointment with Scotts MossEx Easy-to-use Shaker Jug and appreciate your feedback. We will share your feedback with the approipriate department. It can take up to 2 weeks for the product to be effective. If the moss is not actively growing, either due to improper time of year or temperatures being too high, the product will not work. if there is a heavy rain (1"+) within 2 days of application, the product may have been washed off. If the lawn was dry, the product will not stick to the moss or grass blades. The more moss that is exposed, the better the coverage. so mow the lawn before applying. We want you to be confident in our products. For this reason, we offer a product guarantee to our consumers. At your earliest convenience, please reach out to us at 888-270-3714 if we can further assist.
            What the bag doesn't tell you.
            This product will kill moss, however you need to apply often and continuously for about a year (depending on how sever the problem) and then add lime to "sweeten" (less acidic) your soil to make it unfavorable for moss to live. After the moss turns black get it out of your yard...use a thatching rake to pull it all up and then re-seed the grass in the bare spots that it left. This is what the bag doesn't tell you.

              MossEX Disappointment
              After 2 applications it still isn't killing the moss that was thick. It did kill the lighter areas but not the dense areas

              We're sorry to read about your disappointment with Scotts MossEx and appreciate your feedback.

              This can happen if the product is applied at the wrong time (ie: moss was not actively growing) or the temperatures were too hot for the product to work. There are two application rates on the package. A regular rate and a heavy rate that should be used for heavy infestations. We recommend applying to damp foliage in order for the product to stick to the moss or grass blades. The more moss that is exposed the better the coverage.

              Disappointed
              I applied Moss Ex to my yard on March 6th hoping to kill the large amount of moss that grew over the winter. I have been watching closely to find results, however, as of this post, my moss problem is still green. I applied per instructions using my Scott’s spreader in the prescribed setting. I am extremely dissatisfied and disappointed with this product.

              We are sorry that you are disappointed with your purchase of Scotts MossEX. There are two application rates on the package. A regular rate and a heavy rate that should be used for heavy infestations. If there was a heavy rain (exceeding 1" of rainfall) within 1 to 2 days of the application it could have been washed away. It can take up to 2 weeks for complete control of the moss. We want you to be confident in our products; therefore, we offer a product guarantee.

                There is no moss in my yard.. anywhere.
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I live in an area where this product is basically useless because moss doesn’t grow out here. However I saw on the bag where some other customers had put it and decided to try it in those areas. In spring we get a small amount of moss on the sides of rocks but not much to have to “ manage”. This worked excellent on those small areas and I imagine if you had moss in your grass this would work quite well to remove it.

                  Although it has a guaranteed it did not live up to it. I put the Scott EX down about three weeks ago using a Scott’s broadcast spreader on a heavy rate 2-3/4. Three bags covered my upper yard.

                  My back yard has had moss growing in it for years. I have tried several things to get rid of it including using a de-thatching blade on my mower to scrub the lawn. Recently I saw Scotts MossEX advertised somewhere and decided I would give it a try. I used my Scotts broadcast spreader set to 2.75 and applied to the entire shaded back yard. Within a day a good portion of the moss had turned black as advertised, however, there were some areas still a green as ever. After a second application a little more turned black but there was still areas of green moss. I am on my second bag now and still have green moss in some areas of my back yard.
