Nope. If it's a pesticide, it's NOT legal.

That's the law, whether you want to believe that there is a gray area as what constitutes needing a license (ie. spraying round-up in sidewalk cracks), explain it to the DEP inspector when you get stopped. Will you ever get stopped? Probably not. Does the DEP care you're spraying sidewalk cracks with round-up? Probably not. But you need a license to apply a pesticide commercially. That's a fact, not my opinion.
