    It depends onwhere you are. Some states rerquire certification or licience. Check at city hall. You probably can find out on the internet also.

    Here, it is not required but you are liable. One operator here was sued when a todler had an adverse reaction to a pesticide. It broke him as he didn't have insurance.

      Steve,

      Do you know of any organic products that can be used instead?

          I forgot a big one

          Nematodes

          <OBeneficial Nematodes are microscopic, non-segmented roundworms that occur naturally in soil throughout the world. Entomopathogenic nematodes are extraordinarily lethal to many important soil insect pests, yet are safe for plants and animals. This high degree of safety means that unlike chemicals, nematode applications do not require masks or other safety equipment; and re-entry time, residues, groundwater contamination, chemical trespass, and pollinators are not issues. Most biological methods require days or weeks to kill, yet nematodes, working with their symbiotic bacteria, kill insects in 24-48 hr.
