This issue has been bothering me for some time now. The pest control companies have made it very difficult if not impossible for LCOs in Florida to operate legally. FLorida statute 482 requires 3 years of working for a licensed company before you can even apply for a license to apply pest control. I think this is very unfair. I want to be able to apply granular (like LESCO fert with Talstar) but I can't because I haven't worked for a licensed company for THREE years. I also have a problem with the limited applicator's license. You used to be able to apply granular pest control with it, but now you can't. And you have to have three years experience to apply for this license too! Why do they force some people to operate illegally? Do you really think it takes three years experience to apply Roundup? I searched the internet for an organization that may be lobbying on the behalf of lawn care professionals, and guess what? I can't find one. There are several professional lawn care organizations, but their main focus is training, seminars and expos, stuff that makes them money but doesn't cost. I think it is time to have someone who represents the interests of LCO's in FLorida to answer the PCO's in Tallahassee.
