I just found out today the local big boy spray and fert company has been asking around about my business. I have insurance, licence to spray and I try to follow every rule that comes along but you know how it is there are so many I am wondering if I am missing anything. He doesn't like competion and is not above making a few phone calls, I just don't need the hassle this might make. I usually only take on customers who have never had anyone spray or fert for them before but last year I took on one of his customers when a neighbour recommended us to him we also did a small clean up for him and he was real happy with us. It's only a $125 a year job. One thing I have a problem with is customers remove the pesticide signs as soon as we drive out the driveway even after we tell them they have to stay there. I do some commercial properties too and they always remove the signs right away they don't want the neighbours knowing the lawn is sprayed. We don't even have the same type of customers, his are all big ticket lawns and mine are all on minimum programs, just enough to keep them green and alive.
