Stained concrete.

I followed the instructions to the letter( I used it before it rained), and sweep up the granules. I looked extra close to make sure they were all up. I had previously read reviews and noticed how many people said it stained, so I sweep very , very well. However, after the rain I came outside to find my driveway and sidewalk covered with orange rust like stains. The fertilizer must have washed out of the lawn and onto the concrete. I am very upset. I followed the instructions and it still stained my concrete, very badly. I hope it at least does a good job on my lawn,(since that is yet to be known). My advice , use at your own discretion , because if you have ANY concrete surrounding your lawn it will be stained(if wet, I don't know how it works dry).

Comment from Jeremy - 5/19/2013

We are sorry to hear about the staining that has occurred while using Scotts Bonus S MAX Southern Weed & Feed And Fire Ant Killer. The more quickly a stain can be removed, the more effective the process will be. We strongly recommend that before using any commercial cleaning products to remove stains, test the product on a small area to see if the product will fade or damage the stained surface. Note that sealed or colored concrete or pavers may experience lifting of the sealant or color with many cleaning products. 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 contact us to see what can be done.

I have used this product in both the Spring and Summer seasons. Using Scotts Bonus S MAX as recommended and at the recommended times, provided me with a healthier and thicker lawn than years past. I can say without hesitation that my 2012 lawn growing season has been the best of my 12 years at my current Central Texas location. With a healthier lawn, weeds are almost nonexistent. Fire Ants have been controlled beyond my expectations. I, as well as my immediate neighbors, will be using Scotts Bonus S MAX for years to come… Additionally, I have used Miracle-Gro Bloom Booster liquid feed ferilizer and Miracle-Gro Shake 'n Feed fertilizer products in my flower garden beds and container gardens. Have enjoyed many compliments from my Friends and Neighbors!

I used this during the month of May and live in South Carolina. It was recommended to me by a vendor at Lowes, who had it on sale for 19.99 a bag. Excited, I came home and followed the directions to a "T". Upon initial inspection it looked good, but as I began to spread it, I realized that the filler used kept getting bogged down in the spreader itself. Having already used in the past the weed and feed bonus s product, my guess is that the filler was the fire ant preventative. To make matters worse, the "fire ant preventative" had absolutely no effect on my yard. In fact, it's almost worst now. Don't purchase this product. I would be more apt to buy the weed and feed product in the future. Quite disappointed.

I have always used scott's products, Miracle grow potting soil, fertilizers, plant food, bloom booster, store brands have never been a match for anything scotts has to offer...However I just tried the new bonus s max w/ ant killer and it was a big waste of money, I have 1 acre so it takes alot to cover it, I spent $39.96 a bag at walmart spent half a day putting it on the lawn and watering it in. Now 2 weeks later I have ants everywhere still, some of the weeds are dead and the grass is taking off much faster now , but ants everywhere. Big let down!!!

Comment from Jeremy - 5/3/2012

We are sorry to hear of your experience with our product. You may not see the ants die immediately, but you should see a reduction in the pests or their damage within a few days. For severe infestations, you may need to reapply the product or a similar control product according to label directions. 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 contact us to see what we can be done.

Murdered Lawn!

Purchased this item because we always used Scotts in the past. However, we sprinkled some of this on a patch of grass and instead of killing the weeds, it killed the lawn! The weeds are just growing their merry little green selves, but the lawn now has brown patches. So glad we only put a small quantity down by the front door and did not do the whole lawn. We have patches of dead grass, which used to be nice and green. Very disappointed, will not purchase again. It seems the generic brands seem to work better.

Comment from Christin - 7/12/2013

We do not recommend applying Scotts Bonus S MAX Southern Weed & Feed And Fire Ant Killer by hand or as a spot treatment, we suggest using a spreader. Applying this type of product by hand will not allow you to receive an even distribution of the product. You may over apply the product in some areas, while under applying in others. This will lead to both uneven green up from the fertilizer, and inconsistent weed control. Atrazine is root active and activated by water. Heavy watering will not neutralize Scotts Bonus S MAX Southern Weed & Feed And Fire Ant Killer, and should be avoided. Heavy watering can cause the chemical to leach down slopes and into untreated areas or under shrubs and trees, which may cause plant damage. If applied within the last 24 hours and the product has not been watered in, activated charcoal (carbon) can be applied (1 lb. per 100 sq. ft.). An application to the lawn surface will absorb the active ingredient. Activated charcoal may be found at large hardware or farm supply stores or pet or aquarium supply stores. If Bonus S MAX Southern Weed & Feed And Fire Ant Killer has been watered in or been down longer than 24 hours, there is unfortunately no way to neutralize it; activated charcoal would need to be tilled into the soil to be effective at this point. We suggest normal watering (1/2" every 2 to 3 days) and waiting to see if any damage occurs. 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 contact us to see what can be done.
