I do think it's important that we do not condemn organics due to the faults of some. And the same should be said for condemning chemicals due to its over use.

Big Problem with Orgasmic operators who hug trees and eat granola bars. They soon find out Orgasmic treatments are slow to respond if they respond at all. Customers get anxious for relief of infestations and synthetics work so much better.

Many years ago a orgasmic company won the local School district pest control bid on the Idea of Orgasmic only. It didn't take long before they were applying Dursban by the pallet load.

the problem is the article is void of facts, no details or vital info-

do they write this way purposely or what?

but i will say , it certainly does paint an ugly portrait of the lawn care co named

Let add there is nothing wrong with using Organic products and they can Add to your synthetic program nicely. But know the advantages and dis advantages of both. For your own good Don't be a tree hugger and think Organic alone will get the job done.
