At 3 to 10 times the price and 4 to 8 visits per year.

We used to visit 2 -3 times per year with the banned products.

We are not saving the environment or human health, people cut their lawn every 3 days thinking that cutting the head of the dandelion off will stop them from growing.

To treat 1000 sq feet with 2,4-D you used 30 ml of product
To treat 1000 sq feet with Fiesta you use about 300-400 ml of product

Once Dalton Mcguinty is voted out in October things will change. The liberals made a big mistake listening to unfounded claims.

Bethpage and Marthas Vineyard are both using chemicals on their golf courses in the USA. People think they are organic.

Corn Gluten is losing ground. Its a fertilizer thats about it. The rats love it.

If the Canadian Cancer Society shows up in your town to ban pesticides, make sure you attend the meeting and question them on their scientific findings. They are all discredited journal reviews. Growing Body of Evidence my A*ss
yeah i will be sure to attend any meeting they put on. I really hope that doesnt come our way....i would like to even see pre em become un-banned. I think that might be too much to ask for though.

That sounds about right. Most people who can't compete in a capitalistic society, are pro socialism.

–noun
an economic system in which investment in and ownership of the means of production, distribution, and exchange of wealth is made and maintained chiefly by private individuals or corporations, especially as contrasted to cooperatively or state-owned means of wealth.


im simply coppying and pasting this definition so you are clear of what capitalism means....If you dont think we have capitalism up here you dont know what youre talking about. Im not on here to talk politics. im here to talk lawn care so keep your simple minded views to yourself because you look uneducated sir

Would you like to explain that to all the people who are out of work in the auto industry because of the asinine management decisions of their capitalist bosses?

Yes, I know the unions had a lot to do with it, too. My point is to stop pointing fingers and to start working together to solve problems. A completely conservative approach will fail as miserably as a completely liberal approach. Compromise is what this country was born on and what made it great. It's time for us to start practicing it again. One extreme is as bad as another.

North America

Canada is the USA's closest ally, and it's often called the 51st State. Canada entered WWII well before the USA. Thousands of U.S. airmen even flew for Canada to help with the war effort well before the USA "got off the couch". (talk about liberalism)

Is it a 351 Windsor or a 351 Cleveland? Have you ever seen an "import car" from Canada? 90% of Canadians live within 100 miles of the USA. 3 of my family members went to Windsor, Canada for their laser eye surgery cuz U.S. doctors had reached their "quota"...... Talk about socialism.... Not saying the social medicine thing in Canada is good, but my eye site is better now cuz of a Canadian doctor who believed in capitalism.

my 2 cents

Bit weird this:

1. I don't know of any reason that beet juice would burn anything. It is neither unusual in pH nor has significant salts in it. So what exactly is the product?

2. The colour in beet juice is anthocyanin. Same stuff that makes purple onions purple, and most other magenta coloring in leaves and flowers. As an organic pigment, it should bleach out by UV light in a few weeks. If you want faster results, try spraying it with bleach, or wetting it and springling swimming pool hypochlorite on it. Note that the latter may be hard on plants nearby.
