    Do I need a licence to apply fertilizer and weed killer in Texas?

    Any info is appreciated!

    Thanks for the reply, Scraper, but I don't want to apply pesticides. Do I need a licence to apply just fertilizer?

    Thanks.

    Well you said weed killer. Weed killer is an herbicide which is technically a pesticide thus requiring a license. Why don't you follow the link I gave you and read up.

    Scraper is right on the money !!! You can apply straight fert without a license, but not a weed-and-feed or any other herbicide or pesticide.

    Thanks guys-

    I'll start reading up. I didn't realize herbicide was considered a pesticide.
