Thanks guys I’ll check out these links. I’m probably not looking to go crazy at first so I’ll probably stick to something around .75-1 inch
If you can make a ride up to Apex area, @SGrabs33 sells Cal trimmers. Got one from him at the beginning of the season, been cutting 1". Life changing!

Monthly Bifen/IGR in Winter Months?

Looking for input on when most people stop spraying bifen (foundation and Turf) in Central North Carolina-type climate. Is it temperature-related?

Ok cool. I have some bromeliads with standing water cups and many MANY fruits and vegetables. Nervous about insecticides and my food + pets.

What's the best combo? Biden and talstar?
Bifen and nyguard for me

My4Sons - Pressure gauge?

Has anyone put a pressure gauge on their M4? I find it silly I don't know what my output is because the dial isn't labeled, I just have to guess. I upgraded to the 100PSI pump and I try to estimate 50-60, not every scientific.

Bifen/Imidacloprid Turf application - TeeJet?

Are most using XR or AI when dropping these two (tank mix) at the same time to 1" HOC Bermuda? Leaning towards AI but want to ask.

Re: Last fertilizer application?

Going to put out one more application of fertilizer for the year on the Bermuda. Should I go with a balanced fertilizer (13-13-13) or something more on the potassium heavy side? What your soil test said at the beginning of the season? I'll go with there recommendation. Mine said I need 21-0-0 throu...

Bugs and maggots eating mice bait

I have an issue where bugs and maggots are constantly eating my mice poison green blocks in my crawl space. I’ve even sprayed the area and bait enclosure with bifen. Do others experience this?

@Amoo316 Thanks! I plan to start Imidacloprid quarterly per recommendations here. Do you always water that in too and if no army worms, do you keep those apps separate from bifen?

@Redtwin when you apply Imidacloprid quarterly, do you do it combine with your bifenthrin or keep them separate?

Water in turf bifen and foundation spray?

I keep reading that bifen should be watered into the turf soon after a turf spray but will that wash away my foundation spray, I do turf and foundation at the same time. I use rain train and sprinklers so they would likely wet the foundation during turf water in. Separate the application?
