          Easy way to spread fire ant bait, seeds, or fertilzer
          I’ve used just about everything in my war on fire ants. Various poisons, kerosene, fire, all failed to eliminate the problem. The best solution I have found seems to be fire ant bait. I have heard all sorts of instructions on how to apply it. Such as, “Sneak out just after sunset and use a plastic spoon to lightly sprinkle the bait around the mound. But don’t get any on the mound or they won’t eat it” This seems to assign the ants a lot more intelligence than they actually have. I mean, they’re just bugs! I have found that I can sprinkle the bait on the mound at pretty much any time of day and use as much or as little as I feel is needed. For years I have used a hand-held cyclone type seed spreader but have always felt that I was wasting some of the bait. I got this Spot Shaker to apply the bait in a more focused way. It is also great for fertilizer and seeds in localized areas like flower beds. It can hold a half gallon of ant bait, seeds, fertilizer, or whatever. The sprinkler openings are easy to adjust to fit the size of the material. Just make sure the front piece is on firmly before you start sprinkling!

          Spot Shaker for seeds or fertilizer
          This spot shaker by Vigoro is a two liter plastic container with a handle and a shaker lid that has three size openings. Think of it like a very large salt shaker for your yard or garden. This is great for spot seeding grass seed, or for shaking out some fertilizer or granular lime. The lid comes off, and it is then easy to fill with seed or granular products. Close the lid and select the appropriate size shaker opening, and the wide “spout” helps you easily shake and spread/broadcast your seeds or product. I got this shaker for some spot seeding of some bare spots in my grass. It works very well.

          Very easy to use
          The shaker is light weight ( 12 & ¾ oz) with a top that locks into place with a half-turn. The green base is 6.5” tall and 5” in diameter at the top. You have a choice of 3 concentrations to spread and these are easily accomplished as the yellow dial is a single, molded unit with a raised handle of sorts making it very easy to turn to the desired openings. The dial turns both ways and can turn completely around; there are no “stops” in the turning. You can also turn the dial to block anything from coming out, so when you set it down and it falls over, you’re not going to lose your granules. The black scoop part (about 2 13/16” long) has raised ridges about ½” apart to direct the flow of your granules. The (hollow) handle on the green body is large enough for the biggest hands, even if you’re wearing gloves and is wide enough that it is very comfortable. The inside is completely smooth so will be easy to clean. It comes in a cardboard box measuring 17” X 7” X 7” The 3 selections for your spreading are: 7 holes (3 over 4) ½” in diameter; 3 over 5 over 7 holes that are ¼” in diameter or 4 wedge shaped openings about 1 & 11/16” long, about 13/16” wide at the bottom and about ¼” wide at the top.

          Very useful for hard to get to spots and small quantities
          This does exactly what you would expect it to do. I’ve used it for spreading granulated fertilizer and it worked as expected. It has different sized holes for different sized materials that you might want to spread around. It also has a closed position which will prevent things from falling out. For small quantities of material application or for putting materials into odd places (e.g. between hedges and a house) this works well. Vigoro says it holds two liters of material.

          Useful shaker
          I received my Vigoro spot shaker in good condition. It appears to be made out of plastic. It might be mostly polypropylene. The top has a rotating bezel with 3 different sized holes that changes the amount that can be dispensed per shake. The largest holes dispense the material very quickly. It’s easy to use. I filled the dispenser with some granulated fertilizer. I used it to apply the fertilizer to various areas of my yard using the middle sized holes. The lid with rotating bezel is moderately difficult to remove. I like this dispenser, it holds 2 liters of material. The dispenser did not come with any printed instructions or a product box, so I don’t know where it was made.

          Does the job!
          Simple and basic, this Vigoro - Vigoro Hand Spot Shaker/Hand Spreader is lightweight, easy to open, fill and use for a variety of applications. I used it to put my fall plant nitrogen fertilizer and some patch fill grass seed. You could easily use it for dirt, seeds or any type of fertilizer. Easy to clean with the garden hose, and seems like it will last a long time.

          Finally!
          This product has probably been available for a long time, but I had never seen anything like this before. During the spring and summer, I always fertilize my different plants and vegetables with fertilizer. The cap that comes on my current fertilizer container is inconvenient to use and always dispenses a lot more than I need. As a result, I end up pouring the fertilizer into my hand and scattering the fertilizer. Not very efficient and it takes a lot of time. With this shaker, however, I will be able to pour in the fertilizer that I want to dispense and select the hole size that I need for the proper amount. Definitely an improvement over my current method. Because it is made of durable plastic and I only fertilize a few times a year, this shaker should last a long time. Attractive green/black/yellow colors will also make it easy to see and find.

          This is needed to spread seed
          I just received this product today September 24, 2021 via UPS. Pictures from the seed catalog did not do this product justice. If you need to focus on a certain area of your lawn to spread grass seed this is the product to use because you are able to keep the seed in one area not spread it around using a hand spread. It is small compact, light weight However it came with no instructions. Pictures to follow.

          Nice compact shaker applicator for grass seed, fertilizer, and even salt to melt ice
          I was in need of a way to apply weed killer to specific areas in my lawn and came across the Vigoro Hand Spot Shaker/Spreader. The contents are easily dispensed/controlled by the mini chute that is attached to the front and the holes in the lid. Different sized holes are available for different types of products. The lid is removed for filling or re-filling by grasping the green part of the shaker and twisting a quarter of a turn, then pulling it off. A little tricky at first but you get hang of it pretty quickly.

          Large hand spreader
          This hand shaker/spreader is large enough to hold enough product so one doesn't have to keep going back for refills. There are three different settings. The smallest holes being about 1/4 inch in width, the next size 1/2 inch, and the third being triangular shaped around 1 inch at its largest point. This spreader should cover just about anything you need to spread by hand. Overall it measures approx 13 inches long,,with the container itself being about 9 3/4, width about 5 1/2 inches. Easy to turn flip switch to move from one section to another and one additional to close it off completely for storing. The lid has a simple plastic turn and lock mechanism. It works great for feeding palms, shrubs and spreading ant killer and granular insecticide, would also work in vegetable garden fertilizing. Ships promptly.
