    Hey guys, not new to the site, been lurking around here for awhile learning tons of stuff. I am just now looking into doing more than just mow, edge, blow, and go. My question is who do I need to contact to get my applicators license/ take the required class. I live in South Carolina if it helps. Thanks.

    Have been in the biz for over 20 years, and have had a pesticide license since 93. Like a moron, I didn't keep up the needed hours from off season seminars and it lapsed. For the past 2 years I've been applying chemicals with no license, stupid, I know. Got pulled over in June with roundup in a sprayer, and got the warning. Took the test 2 weeks ago *(really thought i bombed it) and scored an 89. 85 is passing. 125 f'ing questions, and I was sweating. When it came in the mail today, I was psyched. If you have a license, keep up the hours, it's worth it.
