In the Yard

  • Stay outside for any length of time and you are sure to find a few mosquitos buzzing around you. Here are a few options to help you survive them:
    • Mosquito Beater -Fog RX Insect Fogger $74.80/Each is designed to fog the areas that you relax or spend time around. This is great for patios, yards, gardens, and pool areas. (You will also need to purchase a propane bottle and the liquid for the fog)
    • Cutter Backyard Bug Control $13.55/Each is designed to allow you to spray to control mosquitos, fleas, and ticks. This RTU hose end sprayer is designed to cover about 5,000 sq ft. 
    • Mosquito Pro RTU Yard Spray $17.30/Each is great for killing pest on contact and breaking their lifecycle for up to 60 days. 
    • Cutter Backyard Bug Control $8.00/Each is a good tool for spraying small areas for mosquitos and other insects. 
    • Cutter Backwoods Insect Repellent $9.30/Each is sweat resistant and repels mosquitos for up to 10 hours. 
    • Repel Insect Repellent $7.70/Each has 25% more Deet to help repel mosquitos along with chiggers and fleas. 
  • We have a new product in store for the control of sandburs and crabgrass. Ike’s Sandbur and Crabgrass Preventer $40.30/Each is designed to be a sprayable pre-emergent for yards. This liquid will cover up to 29,000 square feet. Now is a good time to make that application if you normally have grass burrs in your yard. 

In the Pasture

  • It is the time of year where we start to recommend a full quart of chemicals to provide the best knock down and residual for future weed growth. If you are using Grazon Next the cost with application will be $24.05/Acre. If you choose to use Grazon P+D the cost will be $19.77/Acre. If the plants are still actively growing, you should still be able to kill them. 
  • If you have a need to get your mesquite sprayed, we are getting close to that window of application. The chemical combination that we recommend the most is 28oz Sendero, 8oz Remedy, Surfactant $50.12/Acre (Includes Application). If you need us to come look at your brush, give us a call.
  • If you made the early season application of Rezilon for grass burr control, now is the time to make that second application. The best situation is after a hay cutting or when the grass is grazed short. The rate of application again is (3oz/Acre) $44.10/Acre including application. 

In the Animal Pen

  • A popular horse feed for our customers is True Choice Textured Horse Feed. This 12% Protein/3% Fat feed is a great option for an everyday or pasture horse. For the month of June, we will take off $1.50/Bag. 
  • Purina Game Fish Chow is a great option for the fish in your ponds. This multi-size fish food is designed to feed all species in your pond. Come and get enough to fill your fish feeders. For the month of June, we will take off $3.00/50LB Bag. 
  • Purina Precon B-30 is a good option if you are still weaning calves or pulling them off the momma. This highly palatable feed is good for all ages of cattle. This month we will take $2.00/Bag off.

Manager’s Words

Things are still moving and shaking here. It has been a very busy spring and looks like it will be a busy summer. We have looked at a lot of customers’ places for brush spraying. I would recommend keeping an eye on your mesquite and huisache. They should be in good shape for spraying this year. 

Thank you for your business,

Willis Braden
