Can I get in trouble for spraying this???

I was told that I can spray Ornamec and not have a liscence. Is this true? It is a weed killer and you can spray it in the beds and not kill the flowers and the shrubs. This would save us SOOOO much time when we mulch and we can charge a monthly service for upkeep. I would rather do the right thing than take a chance of loosing credibility.

I don't know about TN but in NC you MUST have a liscence to apply any chemical to someone elses property. Don't risk it. Do the proffesional thing and get your applicators liscence.

The same here in NY, even if it's a Fertilizer or Chemical that you purchased off the shelf in Home Depot or any other store, you gotta have a license to apply it
unless is your own property where you're using it.

Don't know the rules about your state but in my training course they told us it was an EPA regulation, so I think is nationwide.

Best Luck.

i'm in spring hill also. i checked with the state and they require a license for application of any chemical to a lawn other than your own. $150 to test, $200 for a charter and 1/2 mill in insurance. they also have some education requirements. check the tn dept of agriculture homepage. it lists all of the requirements.

Ditto to what crs said. You got to have the license in NC. I will be willing to bet that if you need a license in TN to spray chemicals you will need it for orna-mec. It is a chemical. Follow sparechange advice. Go get that license. It is worth it.

In Utah, and I assume most other states, if the material has an EPA registration # on it, you must have a license to us it commercially.

Lawnshark,
It is illegal in most states. Regarding Ornamec This will not kill any broadleafs , it will only kill certain unwanted grass in and around ornamental plants. Personally I was not very impressed with it. Timing is very critical. But you still will end up pulling the weeds.

I had a UT licence. It is required to have a licence to apply chemicals on anyone lawn but your own.

I don't know about here in Vegas. Still learning thing, I am sure it is the same.

Remember though if you get a licence to apply chemicals. You need to let you insurance company know. Otherwise if you get in trouble even if you are licenced, and they don't know it. They won't cover any claims. Your rates will go up.
