    If msma is sold but can only be used on golf courses and farms who stops you from putting it on res. lawns? If you buy it does someone check you and see where your putting it out at? please dont blast me in just asking a question. ive never bought the stuff and just got my licence. thanks

    I thought it was restricted to corn fields.

    One of those things where we as applicators are trusted. If you use it and get caught it could be a big headache

    I'm responsible to a fault. But if I had msma I'd use it.

    Banning it was stupid.

    Does it go bad?

    No one will be looking down your back, but if you happen to be stopped by an informed officer, you may we watched. I'm sure the supply house and the manufacture don't mind the sales.

    Good question about if it goes bad? I still have 5 gallons on hand; hoping that the EPA changes its mind. I don't use it or carry it on a truck because I value my license, and other products such as revolver and solitare help some; not nearly as much as MSMA did. I'm also wondering if it goes bad? My supply is stored inside a shed in the dark.

    I've had a jug for two-three years...still works great and I'm still using it.

    Luckily I still have some with the old label so am able to use it. However the only way someone will know if you are using it is if they take a tank sample and test for it.

    There will be a paper trail showing when you purchased it...if DOA audits the chem supplier it could come back to you.
