    Do you guys include grub control in all your programs ? Or do you sell the regular program and then sell grub control as an add-on if needed?

    Add on but its getting to the point where it needs to be a regular application.

    Depends on the area. I have territories where it's a must due to a history of grubs. With those clients it's part of their program. When signing up a new client, unless they tell me there has been a history of damage, I wont do an application. I am not one to upsell apps just for revenue, and Merit is one chem that if I dont have to apply it I wont!

    Exactly. I highly recommend it as an add on. Look at them funny if they refuse it. It must be a look that they will remember next fall.

    I posted once on here, and now it's gone again. I'm gettin' tired of this!
    Anyway, what I said was; You always want to sell it as an add on. The problem with just "including" it in with your program, is two things. Many times, it is unnecessary. Secondly, to do this, you have to price the program to include it. You can make an easier sell without it, then add it later if necessary.
    There, we'll see how long THIS one stays posted!
