Inspect perimeter areas around your commercial property for areas that may be ideal for insects to breed and live. Treat these areas first. Trim back trees and shrubs touching your commercial building as insects like to live there. If there are any fruit trees, clean these up because ants and other insects love the fruit.

Tennessee Department of Agriculture Chartered/Licensed Mississippi Bureau of Plant Industry licensed Arkansas State Plant Board Licensed Landscape Industry Certified Below is a partial excerpt of EPA comments found on the Tennessee Department of Agriculture website. Clearly there are many factors to consider when applying chemicals. "The ESA is intended to protect and promote the recovery of species that are in danger of becoming extinct. Threats to a species from habitat destruction, pollution, over-harvesting, disease, predation and other natural or man-made factors must be reviewed and evaluated before an animal or plant can be placed on the federal endangered or threatened species list. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Marine Fisheries Service, collectively known as the Services, administer the ESA. However, the ESA requires that all federal agencies, including EPA, make sure that any action they authorize, fund or carry out won’t jeopardize the existence of listed species or “destroy or adversely modify” any designated critical habitat for that species. The role EPA has in implementing the ESA is to ensure that the use of pesticides is not likely to jeopardize listed species or destroy or adversely modify their critical habitat when we register pesticides. When EPA determines that use limitations are necessary to ensure that legal use of a pesticide will not harm listed species or their critical habitat, we may seek to change the terms of the pesticide application to establish either generic or geographically specific pesticide use limitations. When geographically specific use limitations are necessary, Bulletins are developed to put the necessary mitigations into place. These mitigations are specific to the area(s) where the species is exposed to the pesticide(s) in question. Pesticide labels refer the pesticide user to Bulletins Live!

Autumn Garden Fall Grasses and Landscaping Preparation Soon the weather will be cooling down and fall be here. Our certified landscape technicians can help you start preparations to keep your fall grass and landscape in healthy condition. Some helpful tips are below. Cool-season grasses -  These grasses should be fertilized primarily in late Summer and Fall (September and October). Nutrients applied at this time encourage root growth and turf thickening. Fall applications also result in early spring green-up without causing excessive leafy top growth. Given proper fall fertilization, spring applications may not be required. High rates of nitrogen (more than 1 pound per 1,000 square feet) in the spring will stimulate unnecessary flushes of leaf growth and may predispose the lawn to greater summer damage. No more than one spring fertilization should occur. This can be in late Match or early April with a weed-and-feed treatment for crabgrass or in May with a slow-release nitrogen source. Keep mowing - Grass continues to grow until the first freeze or frost at which time it in then goes dormant for the winter. For that reason you should continue to mow until it stops growing. Water -  So the cooler temperatures create less water evaporation. This means you need to be using a more reserved amount of water. A good rule of thumb is to supplement watering the yard so that it is getting one inch of water per week. Frequent Raking - Soon leaves with be falling. It is important to rake the leaves and remove them from the grass. They can block out the sunlight and if left on the lawn for too long can lead to fungal diseases. Aeration -  This is not always a top of mind procedure however it is one that is very beneficial to your lawn. The summer heat drys out the soil and it typically gets very compacted. When you do professional Aeration, this process breaks up the soil [...]
