Gulp Alive! Liquid

13 posts in this topic

Does anyone know if the stuff in the tubs is the same as the stuff in the spray bottles. I would like to just get a spray bottle and put all of my bags into one jar, but I don't want to accidentally ruin 5-6 new bags of Gulp.

I am not sure if it is the same stuff, but am guessing it would not ruin your Gulp!s if you stored them in it. But, again, I am just guessing. Contact Berkley, they should be able to give you the official ruling.

I just looked at that Gulp Alive today. $20 for a tub. Seems kind of spendy. I will still probably try it though.

Hopefully they have improved the lids on the tubs, last year I bought 2 tubs and if they were not perfectely level the liquid would leak out of the top.

The $20 or $40 per tub does seem high, but I think they say the tubs are the equivalent of 3 or 6 bags of Gulp. I've never counted though, even though I have a few tubs (and many bag) or gulp products. And I agree with jeepguy, try to keep those tubs sealed and level or you'll have a mess.

Price comes out to be real close to buying the equivalent amount of bags. Stick with the bags until you know if you are going to go use it that much. I do believe they changed the lids. I have a bucket from two years ago and one from last year and no problem with the newer one.

I bought one of the tubs last year and it leaked all over the place, so I started buying more bags. I was thinking of getting something with a more reliable seal and just put all of my bags into it and add more of the liquid. I just couldn't find anything with a wide enough lid and a reliable enough seal, though I didn't really look all that hard.

The tubs fit perfectly inside those plastic Folgers coffee tubs. Can be a pain taking it in and out, but at least the mess is contained.

No problem, Fishdale. That's one of the reasons I love these boards. Someone has probably experienced the problem I am having and has found a simple solution. We are all helping each other out.

Buy two tubs now and you can get a Gulp! bag to store them in, or do what I did and get some rubbermaid containers with a screw on top to store them in.

I am going to use Lock n Lock plastic containers to store my Gulp leeches. They are a snap lid with flanges and a silicone seal,and guaranteed not to leak and lifetime warranty. They come in all different sizes and shapes, round cylinder, squares and rectangles. They are food safe and float. I use them all the time in my kitchen for food storage. Walmart, Target, internet. They are g..ood!

    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.
