    Hey everyone my name is Billy. :waving: I am currently a groundskeeper for a school district where I have been working for 4 years. At the school district I am responsible for maintaining 16 athletic fields and 7 schools (with a little help of course). Before that I was a landscaping supervisor for 5 years (I am only 26 years old). I came across this forum not to long ago and have already found some wonderful information. I am planning on starting up my own weed and pest control spray business in the spring of 2014. I have already purchased a spray rig but still have a long ways to go and was hoping to gain some more knowledge through this forum. Please bear with me as I will be asking a lot of questions!!

    I sugest the first step is getting your state spray application license. Please study the materials you are thnking of using. Never like to hear "weed and pest control " in the same sentance. Compatiblity can be a big poroblem. For that reason we sell spray equipment with two pumps, two motors and two hose reels.
    Wishing you the best of luck in your new endeavor.
