Re: Applying Fungicides

Hmmm, I very rarely even smell any fungicides I am applying but then, I always apply mine right after dawn when there is no breeze / wind is non-existent. There is almost always a breeze a-blowin in the afternoon ‘round my parts , I couldn’t see me spraying much of anything late in the day (typicall...

What is this black tar growth?

Can anyone tell me what this stuff is? I am only seeing it where I’ve used PGR and I am on schedule with my fungicide preventative program (2 apps of Eagle 2 weeks apart then 2 apps of Azoxy 2 weeks apart and 1 week ago applied my Clearys 3336) I noticed a week or so ago but now it has expanded to p...

Re: Marker dye

I use Alligare blue at 1 oz per gal. That’s higher than label suggestion but I can see it. Buy it by the quart or gallon from the usual internet sources. +1 and I get by pretty handily with .5 oz (actually 2 oz to every 4 gal tank of solution); ***Alligare, that is*** How ironic this thread would p...

Re: Fungicide Guide

I have brownpatch or leaf spot. I applied the curative rate of prop 14.3. It looks a bit better but is not gone. Should i do a curative rate of azoxy or could i get away with another curative rate of prop 14.3 or a regular rate of azoxy. Its 1 acre so that much azoxy is expensive vs. prop 14.3 My u...

Re: Fungicide Guide

So I found myself with leaf spot and melting out a couple weeks ago and treated it with Azoxy and bought some Propiconazole for another MOA. My question is even with hot weather on the way finally (high 80s to mid 90s), should I still be applying fungicides all the way through summer? Should I wait...

Re: Fungicide Guide

Put down Cleary 3336 F on my 6.5K sqft lawn. Came in a 36 Oz bottle. @ 2 -4 fl oz per 1,000 sq ft bottle is almost over 1/2 empty now. Can see this being pricey every 2 weeks. Best is to buy in bulk and shop around. Quick example below. The guide uses the lowest quantity available which is also the...

Re: DIY Auto Detailing

Have a question for the brain-trust here: anyone know of a really top-notch LOOSE COTTON BUFFING WHEEL - ALREADY MOUNTED ON A 1/4" SPINDLE (so I can easily secure it into my handheld drill's chuck)? Not using it on any car; I need this to buff some acrylic. I am lost trying to parse through options ...

Re: DIY Pest Control for Exterior/Interior of Home

You might have trapped the bugs in the house. Happened to me. I sprayed the exterior landscaping around a house. Homeowner was freaked out because the ants were concentrated on one wall with no where to go. They did not want to cross the Lambda Cyhalothrin barrier This is a good example of why I as...

Re: Horse flies

This DIY trap seems promising. Well, if I had horseflies I would be RUNNING, not walking to try one of these! I say that as, I procrastinated for years about assembling the DIY wood borer / carpenter bee traps (4” length of 4x4 with holes drilled and clear glass jar attached: https://m.youtube.com/...

Re: Pittosporum Fungus

Check out Phyton27 for applicability (and Phyton35 depending upon budget); the latter is my go to for many bacterial and fungal diseases.

Also Fertilome Tree and Shrub Insect Killer (it’s SYSTEMIC) for the mean greenies.

Best o’ Success!

#9 shot, out of a 28 gauge or .410 shotgun! :lol: Seriously (and “ TABANIDS ” ARE serious) I can’t help but wonder if any of the “attract-and-kill” traps that work so well for other winged biters wouldn’t also work for horse flies? That is, *if* horse flies are attracted by carbon dioxide (mammals e...
