Summer is in full effect and so are the bugs! 🐛 Critters can be very dangerous for your plants - make sure you address this issue right away before they do serious damage.⠀
We recommend starting with a gentle, do-it-yourself pesticide with some simple ingredients you probably already have at home 🏡⠀
Combine 1 tablespoon of cooking oil with 1 squirt of dish soap and about 1/2 C water. Spray generously and don’t forget the underside of leaves as that is a popular hiding spot for pests.
Interesting learning experience this week. Just when you think you’re in control of he universe you realize you’re not even close.
Telling the truth to clients is obviously paramount but as a people pleaser I’m guilty of occasionally over promising even though it’s with the best of intentions.
Committed to an unrealistic deadline so homeowners could use their 90% finished house this weekend. Stressed out all week. Worked and pushed my parter and coworkers hard to do the same. Worked anywhere from 10 to 16 hour days. Got screwed by a painter. Helper had pre agreed to days off. We were on the full grind at 110mph.
Friday night at 10:30pm, with the customer and his cleaning crew there, the septic backs up. A weeks insanity completely halted by something we never expected. The customers comment, “Thank You guys. You killed it but it wasn’t meant to be...”
My takeaways... Always tell the customer the hard truth. Under promise and over deliver. But more importantly, your core people are your core people for a reason.
