    unless they are a late sign up and the weeds are starting to pop i just apply a premergent down for the first app. the rest of the year we spot treat.

    Depends on the temps! Once into the season I will carry 3-Way...but only when night lows are in the 40's.

    If it is too cold...

    #1) The broadleaf product probably won't work that well anyway

    #2) Don't want to worry about winterizing my machine and or it freezing up during the day

    Spot spray when warm enough, or new customers. Main weed control starts in June.
