No I was just gearing the information to the Membership of Lawnsite. But what is really funny is my post to this thread was pure satire and Misinformation that no one caught. Kocide 3000 and Kocide 101 are both labeled for Trees and Ball/Spanish Moss.

However using Scythe herbicide to spray trees for Ball Moss is any thing but common sense.

I guess. I sold Kocide. I'm familiar with the label. I knew it was miss information. I'm also not endorsing spraying a tree with scythe. Just the individual moss clumps. A selective spray not a blanket app. Actually, some large, national company's have done this and have found it possible with less side damage from copper but you can't be expected to know everything or fool everyone. You provide great straight forward information on LS. You just lash out sometimes. I get it. You cannot possibly know ALL the things I know for I have never met you or know who you are and vice versa. It doesn't bother me as it bothers you though. If you want true satire. Screw SNL. Watch south park. That's funny.

UNDER LABEL LAW THE LOCATION IS MORE IMPORT THAN THE PEST. Kocide is not labeled for trees and therefore you application was illegal.

There are products labeled to control Ball Moss. May I suggest you hire a real Pest Control Company to make these applications. One very good reason to use a real Pest Control Company is COPPER CAN CAUSE PERNIMENT EYE DAMAGE. Fools rush in where wise men fear to tread.
