Spraying is safe after chemicals have dried. For more information visit the Colorado State University Extension service website http://www.ext.colostate.edu/pubs/natres/03114.html.

MISTLETOE MANAGEMENT- Several lots in WWV have been identified with mistletoe parasitic infection, which spreads and ultimately destroys infected trees. Spring is a great time to inspect trees. Pruning or removing infected trees is the best management measure. Read article on Mistletoe Management and take action to protect yours and your neighbors' properties.
