Who says they even read that? Most homeowners I have met are lost on the concept of a quantity of product per area. Something like a bifenthrin or imidacloprid granule can be severely overdosed with no consequence to the lawn, but with horrible results to the environment. Do that before a heavy rain and expect to seed floating fish or no more crab and shrimp. My favorite question is if the homeowner can buy the kind of fertilizers I use. Sure, but they do not go through a fertilizer spreader.
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Benjamin Franklin 1775
Sell not virtue to purchase wealth, nor Liberty to purchase power.
