We spray, we post. The client is informed that foot traffic after an ap should not exist for ATLEAST 24 hours. Yesterday, I drove past a site that was treated not but 4 hours earlier and saw kids in bare feet running and rolling in the grass. I think I may start to mix in red dye, what's everyone else doing if they face what I am talking about.

What you seen is what really scares me about doing apps and it is the main reason I try to avoid them. I am sure after four hours the app was dry, which is generally the main concern.

I have never seen a kid reading a lawn care co. flag in the lawn. If you flagged, you did your job. Sounds cruel, but you can not sit in the yard and run people off.
