    If you are not liscensed then you need to get that done, or call a local liscensed pro to sub it to.

    Lesco should help you out on that depending on where you live. Also, don't know if your licensed, but if not make sure you are. If you get caught you can get some hefty fines.

    Jrslawn Yes you have to be licensed in Ohio if you applying fert. with a pesticide in it (pre-emergent is a pesticide)
    Go to ohioagriculture.gov find the pesticide link and get info on licensing and testing. I think there is also a class coming up next week in Reynoldsburg Oh. where you can take your test after the class. Call the # on the web site to get an application and your study materials. The license for a custom applicator license is $150.00 the business pestide license is $30.00.

    Good luck
