    the way you phrased that question makes me want to punch your 4th grade teacher.

    Ant,

    Yes, we try to be on the property every four to five weeks. This also allows us to kind of make up for rounds 1,2, and 6 because our costs are about 60% of our the price there is so much competition in Kansas City MO

    Tscape,

    Isnt it a little late for grub control(I'm assuming Preventative) to be starting?

    Not attempting to condescend, just wondering if you know something I dont. Im here in MI aswell, and I was always told late May to Early June. Of course I didnt wrap all my scragglers up until the end of June, but my product is labeled for both pre and post, rates according. Just wondering.

    As for the topic, I run an average of six apps/year. Im about to be through with all my 4's for my six app customers and getting to my "4's" on my 4+5 app customers starting in mid August. First year solo, so I dont know if thats quite right or not. Suggestions, anyone?

    We're just finishing grub apps as part of round 3. The constant rains we have had have us about 4 weeks behind!! ACK!!!!
    Round 2 liquid ran late also due to rain or wind. Grass never slowed down at all....wondered if I needed to order pontoons for my mowers!!!!!
