why don't you "advertise" for the people you use? if you are willing to send them referrals
I barely advertise for myself.

OK GIRLS, Here are the actual statute that apply to advertising. Please note there are 2 statute that apply and you must put them together to see the answer. Bottom Line is you can not Advertise Pest Control in Florida unless you are Licensed. I know the law I just can't remember every statute number.

5E-14.142 Responsibilities and Duties – Records, Reports, Advertising, Applications.

(3) Advertising:
(a) Pest control advertising on service vehicles, in telephone directories or other advertising media shall in all cases be factual and shall be set forth only under the licensee’s name or trade name registered with the Department. Unregistered fictitious names are prohibited.
(b) All pest control telephone directory advertising, including long distance lines shall in all cases show the licensee’s name or trade name registered with the Department, complete licensed business location address from where services will be performed and telephone numbers.
(c) Solicitation and acceptance of pest control must be performed by an identification card holder whether performed in person or by telephone.







482.091 Employee identification cards.—

(1)(a) Each employee who performs pest control for a licensee must have an identification card.

(b) Either the licensee or the licensee’s certified operator in charge must apply to the department for an identification card for each employee who will perform pest control therefor within 30 days after employment of that employee, on a form prescribed by the department. The licensee and the licensee’s certified operator in charge are jointly responsible for obtaining such identification cards.


(2)(a) An identification cardholder must be an employee of the licensee and work under the direction and supervision of the licensee’s certified operator in charge and shall not be an independent contractor. An identification cardholder shall operate only out of, and for customers assigned from, the licensee’s licensed business location. An identification cardholder shall not perform any pest control independently of and without the knowledge of the licensee and the licensee’s certified operator in charge and shall perform pest control only for the licensee’s customers.


In Edit Any Employee with a ID Card must have Taxes taken out and pay into State unemployeement insurance

But if he does not have it for himself then he has to pay for it.
Also, I expect my employees are expecting to be covered when they decide they want the "free health care" Obama promised them.

I hate to be the one to tell them, Obama lied and they call me the cheap bastage.

Not if the Ag inspector is on his toes. Rent a license is a big issue and the way they catch you is Unemployment Tax. All card holder must be legal employees and Legal Employees must PAY TAXES. THe Ag inspector had access to Fla State Unemployment Tax Records on the INTERNET. Two simple Left clinks and you are caught. Companies not issuing Spray Cards in a timely manner are fined heavy.

However Ag inspector are State Wage slaves and don't always do their job as we have seen many times. Your big sweat in getting caught is have your competitor turn you in.
