license please....

Why are people constantly asked if they are certified when posting questions on this forum? Just curious....
If they aren't, would you refuse to answer the question? If so, why? If they say they are certified how can you prove it?

My proof, on file, for when I ask a question ...

That is not proof of anything. That is a Private Applicator card. That card lets you buy Restricted use pesticide and use them on you farm or home in Mississippi.

i think a lot of it has to do with people asking dumb questions....like "i was fertlilizing a lawns today and the wind started to pick-up...should i have called it a day or was i right to push on."

I thing Questions like this one often make people think that.

1. They are not certified...and have no business handling pesticides
2. Are just plain dumb

So, whats your point....you will not answer questions? or what? My farm has been in use for generations.....before me! I was raised on a farm and retain a good portion of said farm today...how much land do you own? BTW, I am near 50 years old...enlighten me with your knowledge...or baffle me with your bs I was spraying acreage with a John Deere tractor [probably before you were born]

It doesn't matter how old you are. You are breaking the law doing business in weed control without a License. With over 5 years experience in the lawn industry and almost 1300 post on Lawnsite, did you not know that you were breaking the law by not having a REAL license?

captken you are doing the right thing contrcting out. Follow the label if you want. It's a gamble not a crime to reseed the area under the amount of time.
