    I was thinking about getting into some chemical applications next year. Ive been mowing for 4 years and think it would be a good way to make money. The only problem is that i am 16 and i dont know if there is an age limit to get the licenses?

    check with the ohio department of agriculture pesticide division. They are in reynoldsburg. I dont have the number handy but you can do a search or go under ohio lawn care association to find the link.

    I too want to get into the business, but on the FL site, it "sounds" like you need to be liscensed for mowing first, and have proof you've been doing it for 4 years, thus restricting 16 year olds etc. from getting a liscense.

    Can anyone clarify on that? (Need 4 years liscensed expierence, not 4 years expierence)
