How often is applicator licenses enforced? Do you ever hear of LCOs getting stopped to check them if they are licensed?

What happens if they don't have a license?

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
I personally have never heard of any local companies that have been stopped in regards to a license in question, but many companies in larger cities are targeted.

In the state of Michigan applying a pesticide without a license, can result in either a warning, a possible $1,000 fine, and/or jail time.

So basically they can patrol a certain area and pull over a landscaper to see if they have chemicals in their vehicle. If they do and don't have a license, then they get cited?

The exact procedure in regards to how they go about citing a business or individual I am not sure of.

But as I understand it, yes they can patrol a certain area and if they catch you, there is a chance you could be cited right then and there.

Does this effect your chances of getting a license in the future? Like do they ban you or can they ban you for sometime to not be able to get it?

Yes. Here in Michigan you have to renew your business pesticide license every year, while your personal applicator license is good for 3 years.
