    Ok, so 1st year in the business and recently certified for applications with the state of Nebraska...... Now, we currently have several commercial properties that include hotels and condo's. Most are good size. What do you guys suggest for tools of the the trade for applying pesticides and fert. We bought a lesco broadcast spreader of course, what about a backpack sprayer??? We have an ATV also with a broadcast spreader that we were thinking about using for spraying. I know eventually we need the large lesco setup for the back of the truck, but right now that's a little out of budget. Any help would be great.

    Take care!

    I am from Nebraska as well. I only do small residential and commercial properties, but think some clients are going to want me to do their fertilizing and pest control. How do you get certified for these applications. Do you have to take classes and all that?
