    Made with equal parts snake and oil. I'll toss in a generous mix of bull dookie until I see a clear copy of the container label.

    They would have to register that product on just about every state they work in as a fertilizer and possibly a pesticide.

    If you buy their full franchise package you get 1 2.5 gallon container of Round up for their organic business,

    Schultz has a Spray Green 20-0-0 product that has Tri-Mec. Couldn't be that now, could it?

    Why pay someone 100k when you can start a great company of you own for that? I have never heard of an organic fert that has to be applied every month. My customers barely go for 6 apps let alone 9 here. Plus I dont know what climate those pics are from on their site but those lawns arent up to my standards. If thats the best they have build your own business.

    All I can say is it took a lot of research and comparing MSDS sheets and having one of there own sheets that they sent to me. it compares to a product out in California. (identical) Sunburst 9-3-1 and the bug repellent which does not work. I seen it sprayed and looked at the results and was not impressed That franchise is out of business and I can see why and felt really bad for the guy who invested in it. To anyone looking at it please do your home work and look at it very close before you take the plunge. Do not use the referral's they give you call others out of the blue like I did you learn a lot and that's with any franchise.
    I have been in this Industry for 30+ yrs and would not like see anyone get involved in it.:rolleyes:

    That's what I was thinking, a lot of $$$ for something you could create on your own, find a product line and create your own seasonal spraying program is what I would do.
