Right, Grassmech, and like you I haven't had the need to use restricted use pesticides. I have had spray services come in for certain fungicide treatments, not because of the type of chemical but rather because of the scale of application - large trees, etc.

However, regardless of whether the chemical is or is not listed as being restricted, without a pesticides licenses in this state you cannot advertise that you provide this service. Like so many things, there's a hypothetical line where on one side you're legal to use non restricted chemicals without a licenses, but once you advertise - among other things - then you've crossed over that line.

It's not just that restricted use pesticides will harm the environment, there are many non-restricted pesticides out there that are pretty bad too, especially when not used properly.

Here is a great website to look up info on any pesticide.
http://www.pesticideinfo.org/Index.html

And one to look up labels & MSDS

Wouldn't Canadian regulations vary from one province to another?

I called several county extension offices and the GA Ag Dept. They all say no license required in GA to apply fertilizers. I just posted info today on the site.

I've decided to cease application of herbicide or pesticide until I get a license. The not charging for application doesn't seem to be a solid loophole.

Good to know I can still fertilize. That would suck to be fined for using cow manure, which is technically a fertilizer. It just means I can't use weed-and-feed.
