    I think I be using the same product for my fist year in this part of the business.
    You just doing one application or do you split it?

    I never do split applications as it is not needed where I am. I use Barricade early and then Dimension starting in Mid May.

    Interesting... Does this seem to work better than just one app of dimension towards the end of April or early may?

    I do not personally like one app of Dimension. Just does not have staying power. I am switching back to Prodiamine this year.

    I have had no problems with dimension when applying it after May 15.

    I haven't really noticed any problems with Dimension.

    I should specify, don't like Dimension applied early. I DO use it for new customers that I take on very late spring, and that isn't very many. Most new ones come on right away.

    I am sorry guys this price was off. Bag cost is $15/bag but coverage is 12.5K/bag so $1.20/K applied at medium rate. Sorry bout that.
