Dont spray without a license-anyone asking your question doesnt know about spraying.Sub it out to another LCO that has a license.

John is correct. If you spray without a licence you can be heavily fined. Anouther factor is if someone, or someones pet, was to have a negative chemical reaction and it was reported you were spraying you could be in for real trouble.

Beware the Lawyers, in this day and age you can't be too carefull about having all your proper licencing and insurance.

Hi Doc, I have appendicitis. Can you tell me how I can fix it by myself? Oh, yeah, what tools will I need, and where can I buy them? I don't have to pay for your advice, do I?

Is the doctor going to answer your questions?


If you are not licensed and insured for chemical applications, it would be irresponsible for a knowledgeable operator to try to instruct you.

Sorry Bobby not trying to be a smart a** but it like a licensed MD telling someone how to do a procedure, they could give an answer and more damage than good could be done with one simple mistake. The best advise on this thread was given by John, sub it out.

Anyone knows Round-Up will kill the vegetation, other products can sterilize the soil for a year and even kill trees. Since he says "which ill be installing a landscape", I think he plans on planting something.

That's why no one is answering his question, we are trying to help him not do any damage, that's why a license is required.
