    Look into a deep root feeder and get into injections. NO SPRAY DRIFT.....less complaints.....looks HI-TECH.....:)

    Although we don't offer it currently, I have a friend in the biz that makes great $ w/ a dormant oil spay inthe spring. He primarily cleans his tank using 1 gal of ammonia per 5 gals. of water. I think you could actually go to 10 gals. of water and then re-clean w/ a tank cleaner.
    Te root feeder hing is pretty good, just watch when feeding trees as almost every time I have seen a client who receives this service also develop burn spotsin the turf w/ bight green borders. Looks like patterned dog urine patches.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think you need a licence to apply fert. And what about dormant oil. It is not really a "pesticide, is it"
