Cannot find Milorganite in my area besides one HD. No worries in 2 weeks aerating and seeding.

In the past week I’ve been to two different Home Depot‘s and both of them have had Milorganite in stock. However, if you’re getting ready for your fall aeration and seeding, and cooler temps, you might want to look at the synthetic route and save Milorganite for spring and summer.

Very interesting smell. It's not overpowering like the milorganite is when you do your entire lawn with it, but it does have a smell.


This past weekend, I cut low, bagged everything, fertilized, and overseeded. Yesterday was got some good rain.

It's been cooling off now. Fall is starting to show around here. Night time temps drop far enough for there to be a heavy dew on the grass in the AM.

Got a couple trees to plant this weekend and then it's just keep on top of mowing and getting ready to rake leaves.


In the meantime...if I find milorganite i'm going to stockpile it.

Seems now that it is getting interest, there goes the price.

Yes, great time for aerating, seeding and fertilizing.

Great deal on Amazon for starter fertilizer, then looking to follow up with a higher nitrogen in about 6 weeks.

For those looking for Milorganite, seems to be plenty in stock at your local HD.

I had great success with Milo keeping rabbits away. Does it do any good with deer?

Yes, definitely effective with deer.

I am curious if it is with squirrels.
