    There were no warning letters given to unlicensed people this month only the above fines. In years pasted they only gave out warning letters to first time offenders. I have heard that fines will be the rule from now on.

    No not me. Wish I could take credit. I have only dropped the dime on two people. First was a limited guy doing full service and he has never hit the discipline sheet. The other was a full licensed guy who was already caught, the inspector ask me about him because he knew I was friends with him. I warned him many times he was wrong by using old pesticides from garage sales and other cheap purchases. He was famous for measuring by gulags. So when ask I told it like it is. This guy killed many plants on his customer property and would not stand good for them. The customer filed a complaint with the dept and it was an already done deal when the inspector ask me. He got a $500.00 fine and had to pay for the plant replacement by a high priced landscaper. He is still doing the same stuff.

    Where are you in S.W. Florida?? Please send me as E-mail.
