I don't know if it is a good thing or a bad thing, but when I see homeowners putting out blanket broadleaf applications when there is no need for it, something needs to be done to stop the Scotts and similiar companies. When I see pros using allectus (nuclear bomb) on all their properties, then something needs to be done. Not saying that there is not a use for allectus, but it is surely not IPM. I will say that fert with premergant pesticide is a product that most guys would miss.

This had been in effect since last April in Ontario.
It's even stricter, All cosmetic pesticides and herbicides have been banned.
Really ridiculous, I can't use RoundUp on a residential property except is certain circumstances , But a homeowner can still buy it in WalMart or Lowes (even though they're only supposed to use it on noxious weeds ). And we all know how they love to over apply.

But you're going to get your butts kicked in Hockey.... And that's the only medal that matters anyways. :canadaflag:

congrats on the Figure skating Mens Gold.

How does it ensure IPM? It will only drive up costs. Instead of one trip it takes two. Either the applicator takes a hit or the customer pays more. Sounds like something Obama would try. Stupid.
Both, It's more labor and because the organics require considerably more product for the same results the overall cost is higher. But if you brew your own compost tea, so are the profit margins.

For me it's been good since we've done all organic for a while. it's "weeded" out the 4 sprays for $129.95 Juice Sprayers.

The sad part is a lot of these unlicensed guys have taken to using gasoline on weeds.

If they were licnesed they would know diesel works better!!!
All products should be RUP that way you have to have a license to purchase the product. I thnk then a lot of these problems and the laws that are made because of them would go away.
