I've looked at 2-3 big box stores for this and they don't carry it. I've found it at one online place that is fairly pricey (they are somewhat pricey for most of their items), so I'm still on the look-out for this. Any idea where I can go to get this? Preferably a chain store, but I'm open to online ordering (paying for shipping) if it's from somewhere I would purchase other items from, too.

This is the one I use DND:

It's more of a granular than a powder.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

I purchase mine at a local feed store!

Thanks, guys! I'll look into the Home Depot one again. They didn't carry it in-store, but I'll bet they offer free shipping to store...most big box stores do.

I used corn gluten on my lawn a few years ago, the crows and ravens loved it, I had to chase dozens of them away daily, I don't think they left much on the lawn to control the weeds, I was not a happy gardener, I will not use it again. Angry

Margaret, that's good to know. At the very least, if I try it out, it sounds like I need to try it in my gardens when there isn't the risk of birds bumping off seed pods en route to the corn gluten. I don't think we have many crows and ravens here, though. Lots of robins, goldfinch, pigeons, seagulls, and Canada geese, but not often crows and ravens.

Corn gluten is the ingredient in "Organic Preen." You can order it from Amazon. I've been thinking about trying it in some of my flower beds where the regular Preen isn't recommended because of the types of plants in them. Nice to know that it does work.
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

If you can get if from a feed store, it will probably be a lot cheaper.

I'm sure it would be much cheaper from a feed store. I plan to check to see if our local store carries it. Wouldn't have thought to look there if not for your article. Thumbs up Just mentioned the Preen for the benefit of those who don't have feed stores nearby. Smiling

I think the geese may be the biggest threat, I don't think the other birds will bother with it.

It was pellets and watered in, but it didn't dissolve very fast.

I've only used the meal, would imagine that would be a problem with the pellets.
