Hi, Lance. I'm not in the Dallas area, but I'm in Houston. To get certified to apply pesticides in Texas, a good info resource to start with is the following URL:
I ordered my books from the extension service and will probably take the exam Oct/Nov
Hope this helps.

Use the link rkbrown gave and go talk to your local county extension agent. I talked to mine and he showed me which books I needed to purchase and was a big help answering questions I had. (now just have to find more time to study!):dizzy:

rkbrown is right I just ordered by books total of $41.00 including shipping. You will have to take 3 tests and obtain insurance.
Must pass 3 exams: General Examination, Laws and Regulations and a TDA exam
Applicants for a commercial applicator license must:
Pass the TDA general examination, laws and regulations examination and at least one category/subcategory examination other than aerial application or demonstration & research pest control;
Provide the required certification of financial responsibility;
Submit an application with a nonrefundable fee of $150; and
Not have been convicted of a felony involving moral turpitude in the last five years
After passing the general exam, laws and regulations exam and at least one category other than aerial application or demonstration & research pest control, the applicator must submit a license application with the appropriate license fee. In addition, commercial applicators must provide certification of financial responsibility in the amount of $100,000 property damage and $100,000 bodily injury per occurrence.
North Texas TDA Regional Office
Regal Tech Center
1720 Regal Row, Suite 118
Dallas, TX 75235
TDA Categories are
Ornamental Plant and Turf Control
A. Plant Pest & Weed Control*
*Applicators who license in this category and are hired to apply pesticides to plants, trees, shrubs, grass or other horticultural plants must also have a TDA nursery floral certificate. Contact TDA for more details.
The only question I have is the example test they provide with the indicated study pages... if I just study this would I pass the exams.... The books are extensive especially the legal statements of Laws and Regs????
Also can anybody help out with local (TX) insurance agents for applicators?
