I started a thread awhile ago about weed control, fertilzer, and pesticides and licensing for them. I Know there's a lot of talk here about it and some people don't know the facts. Well, I wanted to spray round-up in cracks, and mulched areas (weed control) for customers. Some said it was ok if I used it sparsley or watered it down. Today I received a call from the department of agriculture. Talked with a guy from their office that said he received a fax of my advertisement. He asked about the "weed control" I planned to perform. He told me it WAS illegal. Even though round-up is sold at k-mart and anyone can buy it, I must have a license if I do it for hire or on anyone else's property but my own. He is sending me a stop order on my advertisements. No trouble right now, but if I am caught doing it, it's a $1,000 fine. Not worth it for me. I feel embarrassed. Even though I sought out the help of lawnsite, it still wasn't clear to me. I didn't take the proper steps to make 100% sure that it was ok for me to provide this service. Lesson learned I guess. By the way, I find it weird that a Convelescent Home would fax my advertisement to the department of agriculture. I guess they do have a lot of worries and a lot of things to worry about. But man, how embarrassing.
