    Contact your local county extension service, your tax dollars pay for their services so use them, they will be glad to help. In Tennessee you have to take a test, have a charter, increased insurance, and thats just part of it. The test alone costs $400 plus books. Hope this helps. And this is for owners, to be a tech. you just have to pass the state exam to work for someone else.

    Fees and regulations vary widely by state. See <a href="http://www.members.aol.com/groundkprs/pesticides/pestregs.html">Pesticide Regulation in USA</a> for links to all state pesticide training and regulatory offices.

    In Kansas you go throught the extention office and if you are your own business you need a pesticide business liscense in order to get an applicators license
