AdvertisePesticide license on my website. Should I & can I

I am in the process of making a website and I am not sure if I should put my NJDEP pesticide license on it. Does anyone have any thoughts on this. I see others around me advertising lawn fertilizing and weed control, even though they are not licensed. I thought this might authenticate me, or distinguish me from them. I also see other licensed not mentioning their license on their website. I am not sure if they don't want to be associated with the word pesticide. My state has a law addressing this and I believe putting this on there does not violate the law. Maybe I am reading the law wrong. I am going to try to paste the law below ß 7:30-2.12 Advertising

(a) No person shall advertise in a manner which implies US EPA or Department approval of the person, the pesticide, or the pest control technique used.

The last sentence says it all. As long as you do not use the phrase US EPA or Department approval of the person, that would be the licensee. As in you. You are fine. As to the first part of your question if you are licensed and insured it would serve you well to let your customers know as much.

The law also states 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.

"unless such person is so licensed", I believe you fall under that category?.

Be aware that if you post that number all your original application information is just that much more available.

All states are different. In Louisiana if you advertise the service you must have the lic # posted. That goes for trucks trailers, websites etc.

Here in New Jersey you have to put your business license on your service vehicle, which I do, but I do not see it on other applicator's websites. I don't know, if they feel the word "Pesticide" is too negative.

You must have your pesticide license on your vehicle.
I'll have an answer for you tomorrow regarding advertising that you are a pesticide applicator from my contact at the NJ DEP Pesticide Control Program.

With all do respect, you seem really paranoid about what other companies have or in this case don't have posted on their trucks or trailers or web-sites.
You are your own toughest competition. The sooner you come to terms with
this fact, the sooner you can stop worrying about other companies and concentrate on your own business and future.

I'm not sure that he is paranoid, but you give very sound advice.
