    So I have a home owner that I cut with bermuda and he has weeds (dont know exactly what being that I havent seen them yet) that just sprouted up in the last couple of days and he wants to know what he can use to kill the weeds and NOT the grass!!!

    I dont have my spray license yet so there for I wont even attempt anything (even round-up for the driveway) until this winter when I will persue getting liscensed!

    But he was asking me if he went to Home Depot to buy but what I told him was that he neeed to go to a specialty store because they would have what he needed and as a homeowner he could @ least get the more watered down version that would do the job for him!

    BUT what I am asking from my fellow LCO's is what brand/type/dose etc...... that he needs to do and Im sure the type of weeds might have a differance but wanted to ask as of now I have no clue of spraying lol But I will be there tomorrow if anyone wants pics!!!

    This is a different approach, usually it's somebody who his needing to treat HIS OWN LAWN.

    Your customer pays you to whack his grass, tell him to pay a Licensed lco to squirt his grass !!

    LOL LOL. :walking:

    You DON'T need any help, just tell him you don't have a clue.
    Tell him call somebody who does have a clue.

    What if he wants you to explain , brain surgery are you gonna jump on a brain surgey forum and beg for answers?

    Or just tell him you don't have a clue about it ?

    You will only look like a fool or an idiot if you pretend to know something you don't. Tell him the truth, you are not trained or licensed in pesticides and honestly cannot give him the correct advice. If you provide him with inaccurate information you may be held accountable for any mishaps.
