    I called a place today that advertises "weed control specialist"
    I ask them if they could take care of dandelions and weeds in a bramuda lawn. They said No we do bare ground treatments, "it is so hard to kill just one thing out without killing it all"

    Do you think I am going to tell them the truth??? NOOOOOOT

    Do yall think I should tell them about my services?

    Their business card says licensed.

    They are advertising "weed control specialist" and don't do weeds in lawns, How can they be specialist?

    Industrial weed control for around manufactoring plants,oil tanks or anywhere else any vegetation is unwanted. There is good money to be made doing this. I used to work for a company that offered this and the profit margins are at least 3x's what lawn/tree apps are.
