I will be taking the lawn & ornamental pest control license & cert. exam in sept. (i have already passed the requirements through education & am signed up for the exam) and providing i pass would like to start my own business. I would like some info on who supplies pesticides and herbicides in the Tampa Bay area? What equipment is needed? Is it getting harder and harder to get chemicals? I don't have much hands on experience in this field only book knowledge. We have a small family business 30 years (in something completely different) so i don't have time to work with a lawn pest control company which i know will be a disadvantage for me, but i feel i can make this second company work.
