    Karl--That's just plain hilarious. And to think that their price of piss (Urea), water, and a little iron would surpass the price of gas. They must be in league with George Bush and his posse.

    Actually, they probably DO do around 12 aps., with the fire ant control, and all that, but even then, this would be high.

    Do us all a favor. Get the sales Rep to put his program and price in Writing. Then turn it over to Larry Mitchell of the Dept of Ag & Consumer Service Bureau of Entomology & Pest Control, 239 278 7200 Ft Myers, Fla.

    Or Better yet Call Wink TV Comsumer Affairs.
