Good looking truck. Should serve you quite well. The color makes me miss my old blue F-150.

I think we're planning on moving into the Flower Mound / Lewisville market here in the next few weeks. Got something special planned if all goes well.

We already do an HOA there that takes a whole day, looking at trying to capture the irrigation repair market in Lewsville, FM now.

Well welcome to the area. I love working in the FM/Lewisville area. Driving around the area is pretty quick.

Morningside, do a yahoo search for Texas Department of Agriculture. The website will have options to apply for license etc. Start there.

I can tell you from experience that it is not cheap.

You must register your business with TDA as a chemical business, obtain the applicator license, pay for the nursery/floral certificate, plus pay for and attend a continuing education class once per year.

The list above is why there are so many companies and individuals spraying illegally.

Good luck.
