Here is a list of some of the top performers in 2013. These products would either be shared with neighbors as great products or talked about in a whisper to protect secrets of success. This list is not in any particular order of importance because different customers have different situations.
SeaHume G has produced spectacular results for a few years. A humic acid and seaweed combination product really does some amazing things to the soil and the plant.
The comments I get the most are that the plant is stronger and has a better root system, requires less water, see far less disease, and less insect damage. SeaHume is a natural organic product, so people feel comfortable using it around pets, people, and fish.
SeaHume L is the liquid version of SeaHume G and also has quite a following for its bio stimulant activities.
Cyonara L&G RTS helped many people get through the mosquito season of 2013. In 2009 I tipped my hat to the RTS packaging (except for herbicides – I heard of too much over applying issues), and Cyonara L&G was the perfect product to be used this way. RTS simply means ready to spray.
You connect the bottle to the hose and you are ready to spray. Cyonara kills many different pests around the yard and the RTS container makes the application very fast and easy. Always read, understand and follow product label.
Soil Test and Custom Programs probably should top the list, but someone with bed bugs in an apartment would not need these services. I recently was handed this testimonial from Greg Lienert. “I started using Possum’s recipe for my lawn three years ago and I have never had a better lawn in the 35 years that I have been trying to grow the perfect lawn. Possum’s is awesome! I have the best lawn in the neighborhood.” That’s what I’m talking about proactive lawn care!
Pro-Pest Rodent Lure is a peanut free lure for rodents that works. No peanut allergy issues here. When a customer sends you a picture of two dead rodents on one trap, the verdict is in. Professional rodent lures get the job done.
Repellex Granular Mole Repellent is a new product for us in 2013 and the general feeling is that it performs better and costs less than the product it replaced. Have to like that. The product is organic and works.!
Always read, understand and follow product label. The product label is a federal law.
