Don’t spend your busy spring season chasing down dandelion and clover. One application of Defendor® specialty herbicide in the fall can prevent spring weeds and eliminate costly callbacks, so you can focus on growing your business and your customer base.
Complaints trigger callbacks, and each time you revisit a customer’s property, you incur a number of costs, including:
- Cost of the product originally applied and cost of products needed for re-treatment
- Fuel costs
- Employee wages
- Your reputation
Defendor provides you with a more efficient use of labor by allowing you to reallocate resources and generate new business. Fewer callbacks also can mean a reduction in cancellations and an increase in referrals, enhancing your reputation for offering a premium weed-free service.
A fall application of Defendor is especially beneficial because it controls winter-, fall- and many of the spring-related broadleaf weeds. Lawn care operators (LCOs) can start making fall/winter herbicide applications as early as mid-September. Applicators in the North can use Defendor into November, and LCOs in the South can apply through January, depending on the weather. To achieve complete control, a second application may be needed in the spring.
