CA Pesticide Regulations

Let me start off by saying that I do NOT do any sort of herbicide control for any of my clients, aside from my own personal lawn. We had a bunch of guys go around the neighborhood offering to fertilize lawns, and as I checked the California Department of Pesticide Regulations, you must have a state-issued license to apply any pesticide. My question is (please forgive my ignorance, but again I do not deal with this), does the pesticide license encompass herbicide, insecticide, and fertilizer application for commercial use? I asked these guys if they were licensed - they said no - and don't want any of my neighbors to get burned. I just want to make sure that I give my neighbors the right information.

I know I live in Florida but here it is crazy. You don't need a license for fert(by 2014 we will though). You need a limited license for herbicide in beds/pavers/driveways,etc and for apps to ornamentals. You need a full license to do apps to turf....

Any pesticide, (herbicide, insecticide, fungicide etc) requires certification, if not applied to your own property. Fertilizer: depends on the state law.

dont cut yourself short. Your limited lis. allows you to spray any pesticide within the bed areas with a caution label, including fungicides, insecticides, herbicides, etc...etc....
