    Got a call from an inspector Friday and we set up an appointment for Monday. I have gone to subbing out apps the last couple of years so I did not renew my apps cert. in 2007. Told him this, but he said inspection anyway.
    Still have some inventory, ferts, some herbicide. Any suggestions or ideas on what to expect?

    I would probably remove the "pesticide inventory" to remove any thoughts in his mind that you may still not applying from time to time.

    Sure is easy to grab to o'l backpack if the stuff is just "sitting" around.

    Don't know...that just seems like something I would do.

    Good Luck!

    Let us know how it goes. I have never been through and audit yet...so if you get any pointers please post them.

    I would think there is nothing wrong with keeping the products around, because they are now just for use on your personal property.

    Just don't have anything sitting around a container that is not labeled in some way or improperly stored.

    Have MSDS for all your products and a spill kit.
