    Wish I was closer to you Ric. I've been wanting to get into spraying our own properties, since I can't find anyone up here who wants to work or put effort into getting quality results. Good luck with the venture.

    I appreciate where you are coming from. This is by far not the first time Myself or Tim Smith offered this. We already know the response level. You have handled people. Some Do and some Don't get the point.

    I am going to sweeten pot and offer to do a one day seminar on Chapters 5-E 14, 468, 482, 487 & 355 of Florida Pesticide Statues and the Markets that these different licenses cover. The goal is to give enough information that any person attending can get any one of many different pesticide license and make a living if they build a business in that direction. Now if I charge $ 25 a person and get 10 people to pay I might make minimum wage per hour for my time if I am lucky. Therefore let us see how many takers I get at $ 25. BTW I am not holding my breath waiting for the first response. But if by some chance I would get 10 people, I would do my best to make them feel like they got their money's worth. My Ego would Demand that I do a good job. Anyone interested apply by PM for a time and date yet to be decided.


    Location seems to be a major problem. It is always people from Key West or Penscola that are interested. Sorry I have set the Boundarys I can cover and still feel I have some control. CYA Paper work alone is a head ache.

    Good Luck on the Job front. I have been told a Diesel Mechanic can always find a job. But a Good Diesel Mechanic never has to look for a job because the jobs are looking for him. You have serviced your dues turning wrenches and know how to handle people naturally, I am sure there are several jobs wait for you.

    BTW you don't make me mad when you answer questions every lawn boy should know. It does make feel bad that the industry I chose is full of so many Lame people who have to ask those question that a Homeowner is answering. But the same reason Cumming Diesels is after you is the same reason Lame Lawn boys have you answer their questions. You take the time and efford to learn the Subject matter.
