Lesco may be breaking the law if they sell to unlicenced applicators. If this is a concern, check with the regulating body for this in your area.
I have never seen a commercial grade 'weed and feed' type product, whether liquid or granular. It is only stand alone pesticides that are made differently. In Canada, pesticides are grouped into categories:
Restricted - Licence required by all applicators, and to purchase.
Commercial, Ag, Industrial - Licence required to purchase, unlicenced assistants may apply with supervision.
Domestic - Anyone can purchase for home use.

The domestic mixes are usually about one tenth the concentration of the commercial.

Hope this answers your questions.

PESTICIDE USE

THE FEDERAL PESTICIDE LAW STATES THAT IF A PESTICIDE"INSECTICIDE,HERBICIDE OR FUNGICIDE" IS APPLIED FOR
MONETARY PAYMENT YOU MUST BE LICENSED AND INSURED. YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO RECEIVE A PESTICIDE LICENSE UNTIL YOU HAVE THE PROPER INSURANCE DOCUMENTS. IF YOU ARE APPLING PESTICIDES WITH OUT A LICENSE AND INSURANCE SHAME ON YOU AND HOPE YOU DO NOT GET BUSTED.

In NY anyone can buy any pesticide as long as its not restricted use,anyone can legally apply any pesticide (other than restricted use) to there own residential property (or those they lease)legally,without a license.Any other application (other than agricultural)is considered commercial and requires a license.The problem is when lawn care companys apply pesticides to customers propertys,then you have a problem if your caught,or if your tri-mec kills the neighbors flowers-then you have a BIG problem,and will likely be out of business if they call the DEC.They frown upon illegal applications and drift from target,for obvious reasons.

Tennessee's Pesticide law is similar to NY. Anyone can by a pesticide as long as it isn't a restricted use, you must be Certified, not licensed to buy restricted use. After you have bought this pesticide you can apply it to your own lawn with no problem, apply it to another's property and you must be licensed. Actually, you could just be certified and apply it as long as who you work for is licensed, chartered, insured and bonded. Fertilizer anyone can apply to anyone. Lesco sells to anyone who will buy, on unrestricted chemicals. Restricted they must have your certification number on file.

None of those are RUP: Restricted Use Pesticides. Actually there are very few RUP you ever encounter in lawn care.

If it's for your own lawn, buy/apply as you wish.

If it's your business, play by the rules.

Lesco has no responsibility to police applications, only sell products and give "advise".

Most states you have to be licenced in herbicides and pestisides applications, fertilizing only in some states can be done with no licence.
