    I have some friends in Desoto county. I have never been able to get down to see them since they moved there. They live in a town called South Haven.

    You probably get alot business from the Memphis area as they said they live 5 minutes from there. He is into International trade. Not an outdoors type man. Some of us have it and some don't!!!

    let me check with the builder I work with on a few properties and a sub-division entrance off college road. I know Chandler is doing the sub-division entrance as far as spraying goes. I'll see what I can drum up.

    ON a side note, what all did you have to do to get the license in MS. I know TN is a pain.

    To get your licease in MS you need to call the Dept. of Agriculture & Commerce and speak to John Corban who is the Pest Control Branch Director (662) 325-5207. All the exams are free. The exam I took was extremely easy. I was in and out in 45 min. After you get your test scores back, you have to get a 2,500 bond for weed control or 5,000 bond for weed & pest control. Then send in two passport photos, an approved company name, and proof of the bond and your in business.

    Just e-mail me if you find out anything. Thanks!
