Ric,
Good film, now if we can get DIY's to read and watch this clip. The EPA doesn't inflict pain and punishment on these people. It is more restrictive on the applicator. The customer looks at us as if we are bamboozling them with less product. The only response left is--" We are so restricted to application standards that we cannot sit down without a license!"

Your post opens all kinds of Pandora's Boxes for discussion. Rather than take this thread that way right now, DO YOU SEE THE IRONY IN THIS VIDEO???

Of course this video addresses the EPA's recent Label changes on all Pyrethriods insecticide. A memo from the State Of Fla. BEPC pretty much said these were Structural Pest Control issue and L&O applicators were not effected.

U tube is a Internet all to it's self. You can find instructional Videos on every subject on U Tube. Most all major Corporation have Videos posted on U tube.

But back to my main reason for posting this video. What is Ironic about it???

I am surprised those with structural License didn't pick up on the same thing I did. The EPA is concerned with Runoff from smooth surfaces both Lateral and Horizontal. So FMC shows where you can & can't apply Pyrethriods with a POWER SPRAYER and shows the spray running down the side of the building.

I believe it has more to do with the new mandatory language vs how he is doing his application.

Still do your applications but follow the new language (mandatory & advisory) .

AS IN, PAY MORE ATTENTION TO THE NEW LANGUAGE DURING APPLICATION.

Once again you are way off base. So, Let me spoon feed you the common sense point I am trying to make. The IRONY is his applications are pouring down the side of the House while he is trying to tell us how not to Contaminate the environment with a bad application locations. In other words you can only apply Pyrethriods in these locations so they don't run off. But in the mean time he is pouring Pyrethriods all down the side of the house. Too bad your TG/CL-Lesco Training wasn't more technical instead of Marketing.
