    Good looking truck. Should serve you quite well. The color makes me miss my old blue F-150.

    I think we're planning on moving into the Flower Mound / Lewisville market here in the next few weeks. Got something special planned if all goes well.

    We already do an HOA there that takes a whole day, looking at trying to capture the irrigation repair market in Lewsville, FM now.

    Well welcome to the area. I love working in the FM/Lewisville area. Driving around the area is pretty quick.

    Morningside, do a yahoo search for Texas Department of Agriculture. The website will have options to apply for license etc. Start there.

    I can tell you from experience that it is not cheap.

    You must register your business with TDA as a chemical business, obtain the applicator license, pay for the nursery/floral certificate, plus pay for and attend a continuing education class once per year.

    The list above is why there are so many companies and individuals spraying illegally.

    Good luck.

    thanks Hoots, i stayed up late and found out about all the things you mentioned. now i am looking for some used "manuals" to study from. the floral lic. makes no sense to me. i buy floral wholesale with my sales and use permit. i have never been asked for a "floral lic"
