    Just depends on what they are spraying. I use to use Tru for my apps years ago before I got licensed. Main reason I got my license was because I did not agree with alot of things they use to do.

    For myself there is nothing I want to spray this early, but that's me and the products limitations that I use. Everyone around here is out doing granular apps though for sure.

    I live in northern indiana and I am wondering what they could be applying so early. There is still some mounds of snow on the ground in some areas here. What's the big rush?

    KLR.... I find funny is the fact they are spraying liquid already !!! Indiana Zone 4 still has freezing temps at nite.

    The flyers my neighbors and I have received stated that a 7-10 application program was needed LOL...!!!!!!

    I am really educating my customers aswell as non-customers as to the REAL truth to what lawn service they need.

    Ignorance is no excuse....and shame on those who pray on people who just dont know any better.

    were they spraying lawns or trees? the lawn guys at scotts don't spray until april/may, the tree guys are out doing dorment oils and/or deep root feedings. there (lawn service) r1 is granular pre-emgnt. can't say for truegreen.

    Looking ahead at the temps for the next 10 days ...it may be a good time to lay down the pre emergents. :blob3: spring is on the way!
