I would not display that information -- License # that is.
Also if you do sub out & do not have a license, you must make mention ON YOUR MARKETING material, that your company does not provide these services.
I do not know if this helps you or not....
THE law in NJ says this:
(c)"No person shall advertise or represent himself or herself in any manner to the public, as performing a service for which licensing is required by this chapter, unless such person is so licensed." That seems to be saying that you can not advertise these services here also. Greenway why wouldn't you display that information. The license is public information. We are required to put the number in 3" letters on two sides of any truck that is involved in the application of pesticides. Last year I was getting flyers in door from people offering fertilizing & pest control, and they were not licensed. The list of people that are licensed is on the NJ DEP website, so you can see that they are not licensed. I constantly see marketing stating "licensed & insured", which could mean they have a drivers license & auto insurance. I think it is a benefit to the customer to hire someone with a Pesticide Applicator's Business License.
