    Do most of you use signs after treating a lawn is it required in every state i live in oklahoma most of the guys i see after doing a app put signs in the lawn they mainly have advertisement on them to attract more customers.

    I'm sure that when you took the classes to get licensed, they covered this, right?

    In Indiana they're required. They're not just for advertising, although I can honestly say I don't think it hurts. Mainly they're there so people know that a lawn has had pesticides applied, and your name and number are on there so they know who to call if there's a problem.

    You better do a bit MORE research about that! I have never seen a state yet that didn't have a Commercial pesticide applicator program.

    Look here: http://www.oda.state.ok.us/pics-overviewhome.htm

    it's Oklahoma's dept of ag. website. it clearly states what you need in the way of testing and catagories to be certified in YOUR state.

    Not trying to be an azz, just want you to be informed :waving:

    I am certified i have a commercial applicators license for turf/ornamental and as far as the classes they are CEUs but i dont go to these because you have to pay per 200 bucks each time you go to these meetings screw that i will just retest after 5 years to renew my license that just costs 100 bucks. If not then i will find another line of work pressure washing biz i already have my own pressure washing rig on a 5x10 trailer with a 300 gallon tank and pump/engine combo i do this here and there this is one of add ons to my business.

    Steve,

    Do us all a favor and stick with pressure washing. The CEU's are not just a revenue-generating vehicle for the state. They actually teach you something. If you went, you would surely know the answer to your original question.
