4:53 minThe winter isn't the time to put your feet up. In fact, this is your opportune moment to start marketing your lawn care company. At first, your marketing may not seem to be doing you any good. However, in March, things will start to fall into place. Keep in mind that marketing is like a flywheel; you can't start the fly wheel, walk away and try to start it up again half way through the season. Begin marketing in January, and reap the benefits.

1:02 minNIMITZ® Pro G is a novel nematicide developed globally by ADAMA. It is the first new chemical nematicide to be developed in more than 20 years. No other plant protection product in the world has the same mode of action or ability to deliver a higher level of efficacy from a single nematicide application program.
NIMITZ Pro G is a “true nematicide” and Plant Health Promoter at the same time. It causes irreversible nematicidal activity lethal to all nematode stages within 48 hours of exposure. All while not disrupting the delicate soil ecosystem balance. The effects are not reversible, the nematodes do not recover.
Unlike some older chemistry, NIMITZ Pro G is not a fumigant. That is, it does not work by vapor action.
The active ingredient is distributed through the soil Profile and into contact with nematodes through water movement via irrigation or rainfall following application.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much water does a lawn require?
Lawns need 1 to 1-1/2" (3-4cm) of water weekly. To determine the need for supplemental water, look for these telltale signs of oncoming drought stress:
- Areas of the lawn especially near concrete or asphalt (sidewalks and driveways), under large trees and on slopes, take on a dark, silvery or smoky blue-green haze. In extreme cases the lawn appears yellowish.
- Footprints or lawnmower wheel marks don't spring back shortly after they are made.
If your lawn shows symptoms of drought, water it immediately regardless of the time of day. Under normal circumstances, early morning is the best time to water your lawn so that the leaves can dry slowly and naturally without too much evaporation, and instead with most of the water penetrating the soil. Regular, fairly deep watering is better than daily light sprinklings. Deep watering and allowing the lawn to dry out between watering will force the roots to penetrate deeper in search of moisture.
Who registers pesticides in the US?
EPA and state departments (usually the State Department of Agriculture) register or license pesticides for use in the United States. EPA receives its authority to register pesticides under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). States are authorized to regulate pesticides under FIFRA and under state pesticide laws. States may place more restrictive requirements on pesticides than EPA. Pesticides must be registered both by EPA and the state before distribution. The United States has one of the most stringent pesticide regulatory systems in the world.
The safety and effectiveness of each product is thoroughly evaluated by agency toxicologists to ensure products meet strict safety standards. In most cases, pesticides are subject to more testing than pharmaceutical drugs. Professional applicators are highly trained and adhere to all state regulations concerning pesticide use.
Where can I find additional information regarding pesticides?

Aquarius Supply professionals are available to answer any questions that you may have about the products or services that are used to help promote and protect a healthy lawn.
Do I need weed control?
Weeds compete with desirable lawn grasses for water, space, light and nutrients. They are very aggressive and can take over a lawn if not kept in check. It is when this type of imbalance occurs that many customers request help from Aquarius Supply Professionals. Before this happens, a preventive approach to controlling weeds is recommended. It includes regular fertilization, proper mowing and correct watering practices. Weeds can also be controlled through digging or hand pulling. This method is much more labour intensive and is not always effective since many weeds can reproduce through vegetative parts if they are not entirely dug out.
Is fertilizer Important?
Lawns require fertilizer to maintain health and vigor. A well-fertilized lawn will be better at preventing weed infestation as well as drought and disease. Lawns that are thick and healthy can help the environment by producing oxygen, filtering and enhancing ground water quality, cooling the air during hot weather, trapping and absorbing urban dust and pollution, and providing a safer playing surface. It also helps people feel better about themselves and their surroundings. Aquarius Supply offers our proprietary 24-4-16, 65% Slow Release Granular Fertilizer. Fertilizers must be applied evenly and at the proper rate to prevent burning or leaving stripes on the lawn. Your Aquarius Supply Professional will be happy to help.
