    Just curious, how did you learn to apply fert/weed/pest control? On the job experience (when you started your co.), family, college, another co. you worked for?

  3. I worked for a large national company for several years. I show them homage with my nickname.

    I learned from some great people and I taught myself a lot also.

    I learned from the guy that I bought my first skid sprayer from. Then I learned more from taking the test. Then I learned more from talking to guys at Lesco.

    Finally, I've learned the MOST from this forum.

    Thanks guys. :waving:

    I worked for the Foolish Empire for 7 or 8 years. Was brought on to start another company. Built that up so the owner could lie to us and scam us out of the severance he promised. So, I am starting my own business. Cross your fingers for me...
