Hey all, I need some some help.

I have a customers lawn (floratam) that is getting eaten by Chinch Bugs. Do you of an "over the counter" application that he can use to get rid of them?

Thanks for your help

Thanks! Hey, you're out by Durand....Will you possibly be needing any help with your snow? Bill, who gets on here, just bought a 1 ton sized dump truck, has a V plow hooked up, and needs some snow to push. He's right out by you.

Florida has very strict Pesticide laws and it require a lot of hassel to get a pesticide license. You would be best advicesd to tell your customer to hire a lawn spray company.
