    Wow, you are legal to apply in PA already? In NY, getting certified is the first step.... next is to pay another $450 to become a registered pesticide company with the state DEC. I am still waiting for my registration number.... and the pesticide signs that have to go on my truck and trailer. I can't transport pesticides without that.

    I'm starting to sweat my preM app out a little.... my soil temp was 51.2 today. I need to get it down soon. Freakin govt red tape is drivin me nuts. Once I get the reg #, only then can I get the customer contracts signed that I have to have to be legal. THEN, I can apply! :mad:
