    Thinking of either marking out pesticide and writing lime or maybe just sighing lime on the back side. Signs aren't required and I use them as advertising. I don't really want to call attention to an application to a burnt up fescue lawn. What would you do? I like the signs for advertising and to let customer know I was there but some fescue looks like it has been sprayed with gly!!!

    I've started making my own Pesticide flags for applications, and each specifically state what I've done.

    I think ship them off to a local printer to have them printed and purchased a bunch of card sticks.

    I've got flags for landscape applications, as along with lawns. That way too I don't have to hand sign any of the flags to keep them looking a bit more professional.

    Pretty good idea. Most of our fescue has been burned up and most are completely brown. Advertising an app on that lawn isn't good unless the remember who does the apps in the fall!! Haha!

    I've only posted, once. And, that was only to show individual plants I'd sprayed (with Drive XLR8).

    I'm really new to spraying. If my accounts start looking awesome, I'll look into some signage for advertising purposes. So far, no hiccups.

    I actually question if anyone who doesn't live at the residence I'm spraying would even look at signage.

    you may be surprised - lot of nosey people out there. See some neighbors easing over as I drive off.

    Home owners look but they can't tell me what information is on there except my name - terrible.
