I would like to get some feedback from those who are already licensed and experienced here. Do you favor an easier time getting relicensed or licensing employees to apply, or would you like to see very tough rules and regs with big enforcement and stiff penalties for the unlicensed and why. How tough? For example, a state may require a "master license holder" that holds a degree in hort, botany or agronomy or 5 years of experience under a master and a 1000 question exam and continuing credits each year. Applicators could practice beneath this master license, under their supervision, with a multi part 250-300 question exam. Master license numbers must be posted on the truck in 4 inch high letters anywhere pesticides are being applied for hire. Fines for applying without proper licensing are $500 per occurance for first time offenders, partially paying for inspectors and community awareness campaigns. There would be room for license holders from other states with a sufficient, consecutively licensed work history with pesticides to be eligible to take the master test. Think that's made up pie in the sky? It's the results of good intentions being blown way out of proportion. It also resulted in a million person population market being served by three companies in the early 90s. Average app price? $39.00 for an avg 2500 sq. foot lawn. Your thoughts?
