    I know you have had this probably a million times.

    What is the best weed killer? I've done spot weed control with RoundUp or something like that. Now I bought my self a back pack sprayer and want to buy a huge jug of the stuff. So what's the best stuff? I live in Cajun Country Louisiana.

    Are you a licensed applicator? If not, the best spray and ONLY spray would be water.

    I live in Louisiana, I didn't know you had to be licensed to spray roundup on cracks in the cement, flowerbeds, fences, etc.

    Anytime you spray for $$$ a license is required.

    I'm spraying for FREE! I just charge to cut the grass. :laugh:

    If I get an occupational license to operate a lawn service, would that count?

    Thanks for the help

    That workaround won't fly - many have tried. You need a Pesticide Applicators License as sponsored by the EPA through your specific state. No business license or any other document/certificate will circumnavigate the requirement for that license.
