Newbie please help

I'm considering getting my chemical application license. Before I do so I'd like to know what you guys think I should have to get started. As far as equipment goes I mean and how much it would cost me roughly. Thanks in advance.

Haha, I was just being an arse.

You hafta decide if you want to go liquid, granular, or both. THEN we can discuss equipment...

Are you gonna cater to residentials or commercials?

How big are the properties you're looking to do?

I'm looking to go residential at first. We'll see where it goes from there. It would seem beneficial to go both granular and liquid but i'll learn more about that once I get to studying lol

The single most important piece is that piece of paper that proves you know what you are doing--a degree followed with a state license. Everything else will take care of itself. Knowledge is basic
