You are wrong. All states license the application of pesticides for hire. The difficulty in getting your license is the only variable from state to state.
This info was provided so people could find the exact place to go in their own state to get details on licensing and education. Don't try to read different web pages and interpret for yourself. Call, write, or visit your own state regulators to get the exact answers for your own state.
Asking questions like this on a web forum will get you a great range of answers. You're better advised to get the answers straight from the horse's mouth. Contact your state regulatory office, including any questions on reciprocity.
