    So what is your license number?

    P.S. Why don't you add some of your properties to the pictures section of your website? You say "clients" when in fact, all the pictures are of the same property cut with a 21" mower. My bet is the house pictured is your parents'.

    did that guy really rat u out? i thought he was only joking. advice, get everything u have, chemicals, spreader, tank, whatever off of your property. deny, deny, deny, and u best make sure your mommy or daddy is there when the lady comes, good luck, and get the license, learn what u r doing before u hurt someone

    If that guy ratted him out...that's B.S.

    I almost agree with Bobby for once...get everything out of your house and plead ignoreance. Just state you were unaware. My bet is they let you off with a warning. Also, get that reference to 4-step off your website! Whoever ratted you out (spineless -------) probably tipped them off to your website advertising. If so, the Ag department probably has their proof.

    As for your license...I you need to be 18 to get your license in MA.

    P.S. You found lawnsite....now I bet you can find the Massachussetts Department of Agriculture website and get the pesticide licensing information. Hint...type "massachussetts pesticide" in google.

    If that is the case, then I wouldn't sweat it too much and be glad you found out before you did applications. I believe if Hamons did rat you out that this should be grounds for suspension from Lawnsite. Like you are even a threat to him in whatever bumf&*k town he is from. What a prick. That'll teach you about disclosing too much information about yourself on the internet. Some people's lives are just so bad they have to try and make other's worse.
     
  10. LMAO Hamons........

    You web site seems to be lacking and is wider than a 17" screen.

    The lawn pics; the lawn might look good, but the blue house does not seem attractive if I was a client. Loose the truck pics.

    The site is not easy to read or navigate through. Text is small.

    I'm sorry for the harsh crituqe of your site, but it's not fun to browse on. I did not stay long cause of it, customers will stay even less.
