you need to be careful as you grow older because for some reason they home in on you .Like my neighbour who has been ripped off by  certain types for cutting her trees or doing jobs for her house.I now cut her hedge for her and bits but cant do all of it.I  think you have to go on recommendation and  dont pay up front.

all you need to do is get a good trowel and dig the root out ,a long task but worth it and if your in need of coffee you can use the roots or the leaves for salad.doing it by hand is cheaper(free) and no toxins involved .
