IM GETTING AN APPLICATION TODAY, IS IT SAFE FOR MY PETS? WHEN CAN I LET THEM BACK OUT?


AS SOON AS THE APPLICATION IS DRY (USUALLY A FEW HOURS IN COLDER/WETTER WEATHER) YOUR PETS SHOULD BE SAFE TO GO BACK ON THE LAWN.




THERE IS A FLAG IN MY YARD. WHAT DOES IT MEAN?


WE HAVE CUSTOM COLORED FLAGS THAT COORDINATE WITH SPECIFIC SERVICES. THE FLAG COLORS HELP OUR STAFF COMMUNICATE IMPORTANT NOTIFICATIONS FOR EACHOTHER AND YOU AS OUR EPIC CLIENT. YELLOW FLAGS INDICATE A RECENT PEST CONTROL SERVICE WAS COMPLETED ON THE PROPERTY. GREEN FLAGS INDICATE A RECENT FERTILIZER APPLICATION WAS APPLIED TO THE TURF. ORANGE FLAGS INDICATE A RECENT WEED CONTROL APPLICATION WAS APPLIED TO THE BEDS. BLUE FLAGS INDICATE AN IRRIGATION SERVICE WAS PERFORMED. A WHITE FLAG INDICATES A BREAK OR PROBLEM ENCOUNTERED (TYPICALLY DURING A IRRIGATION SERVICE) RED FLAGS ARE TYPICALLY USED BY STAFF MEMBERS TO COMMUNICATE WITH EACHOTHER. FOR EXAMPLE, IF A TECH BREAKS A SPRINKLER DURING A ROUTINE SERVICE, HE OR SHE WOULD USE RED TO FLAG THE SPRINKLER SO ANOTHER TECH PERHAPS AN APPLICATION TECH WOULD BE WARNED WHILE DOING A SERVICE HE OR SHE WAS PERFORMING.
