Is this a state practice or is this federal law, Out here in CO, commercial, limited commercial, and public applicators must notify pesticide-sensitive persons by mail, phone, or in person, at least 24 hours prior to applying a pesticide in any turf or ornamental category. Any person who resides on property which abuts the property to be treated and whose names is on the published registry must be notified.

Here the 2 counties that I do most of my work in require ALL homeowners in abutting properties to be notified at least 48 hours in advance.

Be glad it is a volunteer registry and fight to keep it that way. There are much worse things than what you have.

Check this out.

I had heard that NY was going to that (certain counties) and I never persued my license there. It will be a PITA (especially if it rains and you have to re-notify). Make sure and figure this into your cost.

Here in Texas, we had a few who caused problems. We voluntarily called them in advance. My call went something like this..." This is Bob at "Mega Scam Co" calling to let you know I will be in your neighborhood properly applying pesticides on the private property of some of your neighbors. Please be sure to take whatever precautions you deem necessary."

Most on that list is just trouble. I say clear of them at all cost.

There are just a few in my area. Most are just treehuggers looking to be a PITA. If they go out of there way and PAY to be on this list, you can bet if they see you spray they WILL report you. Yes I just stay away.

Here in California the people who must be notified are the property owner or manager, the workers who would be exposed, and any bee-keepers who have requested notification of any spraying within 1 mile of an apiary. Restricted materials permits must be in writing from an agricultural pest control advisor and the ag commissioner of the county that way no-one can apply class 1 or 2 pesticides near homes, schools etc. I heard that somebody in the Chicago area was applying Class 1 organophosphates or carbamates that resulted in kids dying and over 700 contaminations of residences. He was using agricultural pesticides for structural pest control and was NOT licensed. He was also selling restricted materials to home owners so the authorities think that 700 was a very conservative estimate.-Garth

The Florida Bureau of Entomology & Pest Control issues a chemical sensitively List for the state of Florida on a regular basis. All licensed Applicator are on their Mailing List. From other posts I read from you I am thinking you must not be Licensed.

I saw it posted on a college website for the Cooperative Extension. Someone had asked why licenses were needed for agricultural pesticides and the Farm Advisor described what I had related to you.

Pennsylvania has a hyper registry. The person has to petition the state to get on it and have a doctors recommnedation. You can spray right up to the border of their property after notification and they can't say squat about it. The notification can be even an answer machine message or a note hung on the door. If you are legit, no need to worry,they can't touch you.

I have a little more sense than to post my Cert Numbers on The World Wide Web where anyone might take advantage of them. However I am what is commonly referred to as a Full Book. I would think being out of the county you would still have to take CEU at least by internet. However I know there is a way to put your license on standby for a few years and then reactivate it.

Now as a Cantankerous Old Guy, I can not claim to be with out My Combative posts. I don't pull punches, never have and never will. If you are behind times, then maybe it would be better to read or ask question not answer them or make statement that mis-inform other members here.

As far as I remember it was in 1999 and I'm having a bugger of a time finding that webpage again. I am rather positive it was either a Nebraska or Kansas .edu address. And since it was the Cooperative Extension it would have to be a state university. Sorry I can't remember more. Studying for another state license and the grey matter is full of other things. I do know that I read it no more than two weeks ago.-Garth
