I know, it's really strict. They basically feel as I understand it that you can go work for another company though after you received your personal applicator license.

Now in regards to subing them out, I mean that you would sub they out to a pesticide company that does have it's business license

Does a lawn care company have to have a license to spray professional grade chemicals like weed killer and lawn fertilizers?

It depends on the licensing in your particular state what is required. Some states require that you have a license for both pesticide and fertilizer, while others just pesticide.

Yes you can use them to get the lic.
But they MUST BE A FULL TIME EMPLOYEE of your company and you may be asked to prove it.
This was as of 2 years ago, if they have changed the laws then i dont know..
And NO you cant just sub work to your self....to be a sub contractor you must have a Biz. in the 1st place, which means you still need a biz. lic too.
I know of at least 10 companies in my area that have been fined, and like troy pointed out can be $1000.00..for EACH app. which can get expensive if you get cought..
one guy was carrying a "route" sheet and they fined him for EVERY house on the sheet, was over $27K and I havent saw the guy in years...think he went out of biz.

Hope this helps a little..

What brought on the strict rules up there Troy? Like Bill said, that's strange that they'll give you a license as an individual but you have to jump through hoops to get a biz license.

When I got my license I got it just so I can legally spray non selective herbicides and apply pre-emergents to beds for when I do mulch installs or landscaping. Do guys even get licensed for that up there or do they just do it illegally? I'd hate to have the same situation down here, I'd end up just subing all that work out every time I did a bed or mulch install, that would be a hassle.

The licensing applies to even general use pesticides that you can buy at like Home Depot. It's super strict.
