    Should we report people, who we know, that do not have applicators license??
    People who have been doing this for a long time.............

    I'm new but I say definitely YES, especially with chemical costs going up like they are. Everyone needs to get their fair share of the expense.

    Yes, they don't have to abide by the same rules we have, and it gives our industry a bad reputation. I have to spend over $200.00 per year to be licensed in the 2 states we service. Why should they not have to do the same??

    i would say yes. would you want a doctor working on you who didnt have the right training? or a mechanic working on your vehicle that didnt have the right training? chances are very very good that there customers dont know that they are not licenced.

    Yep, without a seconds hesitation.
    I have the Department of Ag's number on speed dial.
    My state, Texas, is finally starting to enforce these regs - finally!

    The office of Indiana state Chemist has a website to locate individuals who are licensed, does anyone know where to locate info regarding Ohio's information
