    Wow, you couldnt educate the customer a little bit? And you were ok putting out a chemical that will do you no good for anything this time of year?

    Your customer might pay the bills but they are not always right...this is one of the reasons why we keep getting more regulations...

    I fired a customer today because she tried to tell me how to do my application.....and it wasnt a small account, $1550 for the year for lawn and tick apps. But screw that, dont tell me what should and shouldnt be done when I am the professional. Especially after telling you the reasons why we are doing what we are doing, you still want it done your way? this isnt burger king.....you cant always have it your way, especially if it isnt agronomically or environmentally right....

    Although not idea you can spring treat for grubs though not as effective per dollar spent. The big problem is you only are treating whats in the ground now which will do little damage before they emerge. Then new ones come over from next door to your enticing lawn and you get damage anyways.
