    Anyone a certified Pesticide Applicator? You will have to prove you are certified. I am working on a big contract and I am looking to sub that side out. It is ALL in Virginia Beach but it is not small work you will need some time as it is a huge contract. If anyone in interested let me know and I can give you more details on it...
