    BUT I"M ORGANIC SOOOOOOOOOOOOOo..... no ticket, no nothing... :) I actually thanked him for stopping by... Shaked his hand and everything... What a nice guy! "If I had a little 3 way though, BOOM!!!!!!!" I have my technicians license but he told me that I have to have a triangle on my truck and I havn't gotten that yet..... Don't know why! The guy was hidding behind my truck because there was another landscaper down the block and he wanted to stay hidden.... I thought it was kinda funny, thought I'd share it! Peace and Greenzzzzzzz:cool2: :headphones: :cool2:

    he is absolutely serious.
    many of the "organic" products are as bad or worse that the man made stuff.
    Diatomaceous earts for example is terrible stuff. it is being banned from pool fltration systems ( they have filters that use DE as a filter media) becuase it is a wicked carcinogen and can cuase severe respiratory problems.

    the pesticide certification is in place to keep people from applying anything that kills anthing liable for dammages they cuase.

    top dog..
    if anything you apply to kill anything is a pesticise... salt, urine for fire ants, etc.

    yes, i understand that, but that is stretching it. guess we should add dentist since they use toothpaste on us, and all those anti bacterial soap peps also.

    anyways, just seems odd, and i do hold a valid applicator's license. just got back from a class at purdue last week to keep up my points.

    You do any type of spraying in N.Y. and get paid for it you better have a license, even if you pee on someones lawn.
