	I am always very careful with chemicals...look like a spaceman
when applying them.  I followed the directions on the product label.  I
did not just pour it out on the ground!  The stuff was very expensive, and
I have better sense than just to waste it on the ground by pouring it out
of the jug.  I am just reporting my experience with it, and I can assure
you that I will never buy it again.  What I bought could have been a bad
batch or superstrength.  I don't know.
