Here in New York the dec fines you $5000.00 per accurance. If this guy is not licensed I would be on the phone right after he made his first application. This is why good chemicals get pulled off the market because of these un-licensed guys like him that use these chemicals and someone gets hurt.

I'm with sodfather. There is nothing worse than some dumba-- out there with a sprayer full of Dursban and a pair of cutoffs. It gives legit applicators a bad name. Most people that I have met don't know someone even needs to be certified. To a reasonable extent we must police ourselves.
Good Luck,

Bobby, @ .6cents per square ft around here, that is the going reate per app up to 10,000-11000 sq. ft, where it drops to .5 or .4. if it is 4500 sq. ft, there are BIG spray companies that will do that property for 27 bucks an app, and it'll look pretty good. I have a $35 minimum, and the lime would be based on how much the ph needs adjusting. on the fert and spray, around here, that guys close to my competition. Dave
