HA! I thought I had you....I already called my lawyer to sue the crap out of you! I figured 50 Gazilion billion million dollars was a good number.


Most states have a fine, but then again, never enforce it. Theres a risk to doing it and not knowing what your doing. Ask this guy:

Look into organic fertilizers. For most states you don't need a license. Milorganite works great to get the lawns green again, and all organic. you can buy it at home depot., $13 for 38lbs. Make sure you check your state laws though...

When I get a call for spraying weeds, bugs fert I tell them the price, and then call the guy who lives down the road to do the work. He goes out, does the work collects, and then give me my 10 bucks for the referral. I don't have a license, nor do I have the insurance for the work, and the fine for first time citation is 5000 dollars.
