    What would you charge to spray a 900 ft hedge of hollies infected with whiteflies? 300 bushes spaced at 3 ft apart. THe hedge is about 6 ft high.

    I'll post my price later...

    Are you sure these hollies have whiteflies? I've never seen anything but scale on them. Are you seeing the white specks under the leaves?
