    I think just about everywhere you need a license to apply pesticide. Usually you take classes for it too i think.

    BLKSS - provided you have either a TDA or Structural Pest License, of which either one will cover this situation, you may apply.
    In instances like this I would charge a flat rate up to a certain square foot then multipliers kick in.
    More information is needed on plant types, size of area to be sprayed, and historical knowledge of the customer - ie are they on high blood pressure medication, kids or pets around - stuff like this.
