    Is anyone else seeing a lot of pm in the midwest, even on lawns that aren't getting fertilizer I am seeing it. Must be the extended cold weather we've been having.

    We have several lawn maintenance accounts that are getting it....We just sprayed our lawn today for it hopefully it works b/c it is spreading fairly fast

    I'm in central Oklahoma and so far we have it on about 90% of our fescue yards. We are also seeing a lot of the scale on the blackjacks. I head the maintenance division and not the lawn/tree spraying but I have never seen the mildew in particular as bad in 10 years of the business. My weed control man has been in the biz for 30 years and says he's never seen it so bad. Oh well, sounds like job security to me!! Good Luck.
