Re: Grub Control

@iFisch3224 @g-man I think the Bayer Sevin (Carbaryl) can be used as a curative for grubs, but it is not labeled for use on home lawns. The red bottles of “Sevin” found in box stores has transitioned to a new active ingredient - Zeta-Cypermethrin. I’m not sure if it works on grubs. This is true. I ...

The redneck in me would be tempted to hire a few high school kids and have them dig it with shovels.

Re: Home security system

The Arlo looks interesting but the Eufy also looks like a great option. Pretty pricey though Best price I found for the Arlo pro 2 was at Costco. I got 5 cameras, 5 batteries, 5 mounts, 3 skins, 1 2 battery charger & the base unit. I paid $699. How long do the batteries last? Are you generally happ...

Yes indeed. Allowed for better/custom nozzle spacing. Nice TeeJet nozzles really take it to the next level.

Re: Definition of "Over the Top" vs 'Direct' Spraying of Pre_M?

I think over the top would be equipment used in greenhouses and commercial applications. I always pay attention to the broadcast application directions. @craigdt when they state 'direct' is it @ the root or right on the leaves themselves? Heh- now we are getting to the area where someone with actua...

Re: Spring 2019 - Time to Prep

@craigdt I don't know about gallery too much. Prodiamine is enough for me. I would not recommend max annual rates. You get better control with split apps (now and in 6 weeks) at half rates. Enter your ZIP code into the www.gddtracker.net and it will show you when it is early, optimal, late. I was n...

Re: Spring 2019 - Time to Prep

PreM time is here. Thegrassfactor shared in youtube that in the TN area forsythia has flowered. GDDtracker has a few areas in the green (VA and KY). Therefore start making plans based on your area (sorry North Dakota at least 1.5months). Error in the side of early instead of late. https://i.postimg...

Re: Matching GPM pump output to spray nozzles

You could also build a platform off the back that provides and additional support, see photo. This platform is attached using the scag manufacturer bracket for the collection system. The platform hinges so the additional support wheel can follow contours when traveling in ditches or hills. The addi...

Re: Soil Surfactants/Wetting agents?

@Jacob_S Do you have issues with it in your hose end sprayer? It seems to foam up in my hose end sprayer so I'm not sure how much is actually getting put down. In that same vein, I suppose I should ask if applying it with a tow-behind spray with an agitator will be okay. I intend on using some larg...

Re: Soil Surfactants/Wetting agents?

Well I just got my shipment of Penterra today.
4 little 32oz jugs should be about a season's worth of applications.

If it does even 25% of what it claims, I'll be a happy camper.

Re: Chapin 20v Backpack Sprayer

Any quick thoughts on the 20v vs the 24v? About to add this to my arsenal for when I dont need to hook up the tow-behind sprayer. Thinking about the 24v as it seems to be more readily available on Amazon for $159. None of my local stores seem to have either of them in stock. Based on g-man above, I ...
