msma restrictions?

If msma is sold but can only be used on golf courses and farms who stops you from putting it on res. lawns? If you buy it does someone check you and see where your putting it out at? please dont blast me in just asking a question. ive never bought the stuff and just got my licence. thanks

You people make a mountain of a mole hill here, until you see a big "R" on the front of the jug...I wouldn't be too concerned with it.

I just made a comment. How is that making a mountain out of a mole hill?

Here ya go.

Under the agreement, many uses, including use on residential lawns, will be canceled by the end of this year. For products used on cotton and products phased out after 2009, new use restrictions and mitigation measures will be added to increase protections to water resources. By mid-March, the registrants must submit voluntary cancellation requests for all uses, other than the use of MSMA on cotton. By the end of 2009, many existing uses will be phased out and canceled including use on residential lawns, forestry, non-bearing fruit and nut trees, and citrus orchards. Over the next 4 years, uses on golf courses, sod farms, and highway rights of way will be phased out, promoting transition to alternatives.

One of those things where we as applicators are trusted. If you use it and get caught it could be a big headache

I'm responsible to a fault. But if I had msma I'd use it.

Banning it was stupid.

No one will be looking down your back, but if you happen to be stopped by an informed officer, you may we watched. I'm sure the supply house and the manufacture don't mind the sales.

Good question about if it goes bad? I still have 5 gallons on hand; hoping that the EPA changes its mind. I don't use it or carry it on a truck because I value my license, and other products such as revolver and solitare help some; not nearly as much as MSMA did. I'm also wondering if it goes bad? My supply is stored inside a shed in the dark.
