    I found this jug at my supplier, it said glyphosate, mix 1.5 per 1000 sq ft to kill weeds. I sprayed my customers lawns at this rate and all 60 lawns I sprayed last week at this mixture are dead? where did we go wrong?

    2000 posts and you don't understand glyphosate? Oh, WAIT. April Fool!
    Experience is a great teacher--but she can be a beach.

    Had a salesman at a local (National) branch that was out of 3way tell me the best thing they got is Lesco Prosecutor. I looked at him like he was on fire. He said "What, that's what most guys are using because 3way is backordered." I went across the road to another supplier and picked up 4 cases of 3way...off of the 10 skids sitting on the floor. Didn't even bother to tell the guy at JDL.
    (Oh wait, did I give it away..?)
