I don't think people understand the difference in regulation here compared to up north. Only thing most guys could do down here is Mow.

They definitely won't transfer licences... Can't tell you how many applicants I have had who think its possible, to find out it isn't.. And I hate to be the one to tell them the comparative pay rate.. Mr g has it spot on for central Florida...

Ya looks pretty tough to get licensed down there. I guess Georgia will reciprocate almost any state from what I have read.

I really like the fact I am in a smaller town and have a Pesticide License that not every one can get.

First point is my Cost of Living is low and Housing in my area is the most reasonable in Fla.

Second Not all the Big Boys have found my piece of paradise, so My prices for fert & squirt have a health margin.
