Maxxthor SG Lawn Granules

Maxxthor SG Lawn Granules

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:    Sand granules designed to last longer and work their way down deeper when applied to turf around the home. Once applied, the the active will release slowly over 30-45 days. During this time, dirt dwelling insects will be controlled and eradicated.

TARGET PESTS:    Just about everything including ants, centipedes, fleas, fire ants, millipedes, mole crickets, ticks, springtails, pillbugs, sowbugs, crane flies, turf weevils, webworms, billbugs, chinch bugs and more.

WHERE TO USE IT:    For use around the home in flower beds, grass, pine islands and mulch areas.

This short video shows how to apply these “sandy” like granules efficiently around your home with a “tip” that makes using them super easy!

RATE OF APPLICATION:    Conveniently packaged in 11 plastic jugs, 1 lb will treat 500-1000 sq/ft. So each jug can treat 5,500 to 11,000 sq/ft.

So lets say you wanted to treat a 10 foot band around your homes perimeter and each side of the home is 50 feet wide. You would need about 1/2 to 1 lb per side.

The rule to follow for the rate is to use 1 lb per 1,000 sq/ft if you are targeting pests in the ground like springtails, grubs or mealybugs.

For large crawling pests like ants, centipedes, ticks or sowbugs, use 2 lbs per 1,000 sq/ft.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD IT BE APPLIED:   This will vary depending on the local weather and pest problem. So for initial infestations, renew the granules once a month until they’re gone. Once the problem is under control, treat once every 3 months to make sure the problem pest does not return.

Really works!!!!! I had no doubts about this product. Whenever I have any pest problem, I go to for assistance. Their tech team is knowledgeable and helpful in advising which product to use. I was told that I would see results in two to three days, however I actually saw results within 24 hours. No more mounds of ants in the yard. We are able to camp in peace without these little warriors. I will always use and continue to refer this company to others. Thanks!!!!!

I would like to use the Maxxthor granules but concerned if it will have an effect on the dog that likes to run around and roll about on the buffalo lawn.
Is it safe for pets?
Please advise.

Do springtails carry the maxxthor granules back to their “nest”? I am wondering how the nest is destroyed.

I’m having a problem with chiggers, springtails, and psocids. Will these granules treat these bugs? Also, will Maxxthor ec knockdown these bugs as well?

I’m glad to have the opportunity to review the Bugspray products and customer service. We have only been using their products for about 2-3 weeks, BUT, we are very impressed. Customer service is good, quick and helpful. The Maxxthor EC and granules are definitely helping to eliminate our clover mites. Also, the Bithor and the FS-MP spray. We have had clover mites ever since we moved into our new home in 2016. We have a pest company currently, and had another one. We decided we need to become more pro-active and do something ourselves to help KILL THE CLOVER MITES. I believe with my whole heart, this company and their products is going to be the help we NEED! Thank you, Nancy Carver

There has been web worms in my locust trees the past few years. Last fall I had someone come out and attach a few things into the tree.. honestly do not know what they attached.. I am not sure if i should wait and see if what they did will keep the web worms out of the tree or go ahead and use something now. Do you have something to use BEFORE there are webs in the tree ?

I’m very excited to find out this company and purchase insect treatment materials which helped me better then two other companies that came to my house to treat the same problems .
I really thank you!

1.5 years ago when we were literally infested with clover mites, and considering MOVING just to get away from them, and our house is new. We are in a very sunny location and in one room it was awful.
Anyway, they suggested the Maxxthor granules along with 2 other products. Together all 3 of them have eliminated (so far) our clover mite issue.

They were kind to tell us a schedule to apply treatment and my husband does that faithfully, and it is helping.

They are quick and very reliable. We are glad we found them, not even our quarterly bug company could rid us from clover mites.

Thank you very much!

I’m planning to put down some granules around the perimeter of my home. If I pressure wash my house after doing so, does it have a negative impact on the granules?

We have been using this product for 3 years now. We get it from Bug Spray. This product when combined with other products they carry, works, to eliminate the population of clover mites in our yard, and in our southern window tracks. Thank you!

Excellent for sprintails! I purchased this product after reading the springtail guide on here. I used half of the jug for approx. 2,600 square feet of grass and mulch beds, followed by an immediate spraying of the Maxxthor liquid, as recommended on the guide. For the lawn, I used my Scotts rotary spreader on the lowest setting (literally the lowest setting between the 2 and 15 because the granules are so powdery). For the planted mulch beds, I poured some granules in a paper cup and hand spread them. 4 weeks later, I spread the remaining half of the jug and sprayed again. In between the 4 weeks, I also followed the other recommended steps (dusting voids, spraying the interior and exterior as required). So far, I have gone from seeing dozens of springtail’s inside/thousands outside all over my siding per day to seeing maybe 1-2 per day max, on some days I don’t see a single one. This product has worked very well, it just requires diligent effort on your part to attack the problem from different angles.

Great stuff! Massive improvement after the first application. I couldn’t have asked for better results. Both products.

Best for Keeping Springtails under Control! This is the best product I have found for keeping springtails under control. That is not to say that there aren’t some still jumping around on my window sills but the product really cuts the population down. I use it around the foundation every six weeks.

Can I use MAXXTHOR SG 11 LB LAWN GRANULES around the fruit tree since we have two pear trees in the lawn.

Works great and gets rid of ants fast. Very easy to spread. I definitely recommend the product.

I have been fighting ground scales for 3 years. I purchased Maxxthor SG and applied 3 times last year. I have several large spots of grass dead. Will I need to apply again this year before re-soding the grass. Would it be better to cultivate dead spots and mix Maxxthor in with the soil before installing sod this spring? I tried to call your number and it’s no good any more. Is their another number? Do I need to use liquid with granular Maxthor? Appreciate any help with my grass. Bill

Just spread the granules using the ziplock bag, I saw it on one of your videos!! It’s so much easier spreading them like that thank you!
