Not resolved

My neighbors use TruGreen.Their lawn looks dead.

Mine is green. I don't use a lawn service or lawn chemicals. My soil is the same as theirs. The point is that TruGreen tells my neighbors that the chemicals are safe and "organic-based," which to me means the base can be organic with anything added to it.

TruGreen came a month ago and sprayed *** and grub killer on my neighbors' lawn in 40 mile an hour winds in advance of a big rain storm. Not surprisingly, the spraying didn't work because what chemicals didn't get blown all over the neighborhood got washed down the storm drain. A month later they are here again. My tongue is burning and I have a headache so I assume TruGreen is Spraying a generous dose.

The man who sprayed wore only rubber gloves for protection and no mask or protective clothing. His pants were wet to the knees with lawn chemicals. It is supposed to rain for the next five days so he will be back again in a month when my neighbors complain that the grubs and weeds remain. Why do my neighbors, also my friends, place their fear of weeds and grubs and love for their lawn ahead of the environment and their friends' and neighbors' health?

They do it because TruGreen sales people have told them that their products are safe and organic based and will dissipate within 48 hours. My neighbors don't seem to get that dissipate means to go into the air for all of us to breathe. Grrrrrr.

I hate TruGreen.Agressive sales and deceptive practices.

Tru Green poisoned my land today.In my 60 plus years I have never sprayed any chemicals .

They sprayed my property which was the wrong address. And then they blew me off. So my organic garden is no more. My tongue and lips are tingling.

This is an outrage. They need to remove the soil and grass and replant.

They need to be prosecuted for poisoning my land, my family, my pets and the wildlife that inhabits my land!HELP!


Tru Green advertises on the net that their fertilizer is safe for lakes. But it contains bone meal which is composed of phosphorus, one of the two worst ingredients (along with nitrates) to go into a lake. They both promote growth of plants - which means hello invasive species such as Eurasion milfoil and goodbye to swimming and boating in the lake because the weeds will grow!!


I am a Trugreen employee. I don't understand your "head ache and itchy tongue" I spray these chemicals 40+ hours a week and have never experienced these symptoms. Perhaps yoy should see a doctor.

Everyone is different some people are more susceptible than others.Some people's bodies are very sensitive to chemicals.

When I am around the smell of certain plastics, pesticides and herbicides, and even strong perfumes, I not only get a headache and sore throat, but I am often dizzy and vomiting.

I won't say you are lucky as your tolerance equals longer term exposure, which will very possibly translate to health concerns down the line for you.

There are too many studies linking workers with long term health problems including respiratory diseases and cancers.I guess some people's bodies are better warning them than others.

Your sensitivity is your problem, not your neighbors.

TruGreen "ChemicalLawn" is doing nothing but poisoning OUR planet.They hire inexperienced seasonal workers that couldn't care less, nor know how to do their jobs correctly.

After researching the myriad of complaints against their parent ServiceMaster; I ask everyone to BOYCOTT any of their businesses. All of the lawsuits against their companies are DISGRACEFUL!

One lie will lead to more!Help save our planet!!


TruGreen poisons our environment. Honestly the fact that people don't see it is beyond me. All lawn sprays should be illegal!!!!!
