Do you post signs when you've applied chemicals?

    Pretty straight-forward question.

    Do you do this, because it's a state/federal requirement (other reason(s))?

    Is it a requirement (to post) in your state?

    not required, but we consider it 50% advertizing and 50% customer and public notification and consideration.

    we do it, and it has worked well

    I like it for advertising too, its really for the customer to know when you were there. We also write the time n date on all of our flags.

    Not in my state. According to the DOA, it is best if what I do is kept between my clients, myself and the DOA. No signs in the yard, nothing on my truck, no phone number or any other identifying marks. The DOA is required to follow up on all calls or calls referred to them by another City or State agency, even if the call is trivial, even if I have not violated any regulations. They must investigate. I am in a state where many people are anti pesticide. The only reason why it is not totally banned here is that very few people actually apply on any scale. Trugreen would get shut down in a heart beat here, and not necessarily for violating the label.
