I don't mean to hijack this thread but the use of imidacloprid in my area is astounding and curious to here others on this. In Ma if you looked at map of the eastern part of the state and colored in each property that is treated with imidacloprid it would be alarming.From lawns to trees most properties are being treated. When I drive around in every neighborhood,office park, and virtually any were their is a green space that is being maintained I will find a lawn care flag or tree service tag. Having worked for numerous lawn and tree companies and talking with others in the industry this is a product that every one has in their chem shed. Granted most people in this area hire at least one company to treat something on the property and many have both tree and lawn services. This is not even taking into consideration the do it yourself homeowner.So what's it like in your area?
