    No, he's the property owner.

    I'm inclined to disagree. If he's earning income from apartments, its no longer just his residence, and he does need to be certified. Call the PDA to verify this.

    Here in MN, he's the property owner.

    Doesn't matter he's gaining income from the apartments, he's not for hire with the spraying, therefore no license.

    Just like a property manager can go spray their own commercial buildings.

    However, like was stated, call the Department of Agriculture for your state and ask.

    In MA, yes he must be licensed

    So you can see it will depend on your state laws

    Same with Florida.

    But what inspector is going to Bust him. I think we need to use a little common sense when looking at the laws. He could get away with anything short of Termite Fumigation on his own property.
