    If you have no experience with apply pesticides you should go to work for a local company, Big mega company or small one, learn how to do it right and see if you really like this type of work.

    Dont do things half A$$, dont skimp on things like insurance, licensing, paying taxes. Do us all a favor that have been doing this for awhile and be legit

    For sure , make sure you get proper licensing and then make sure that you follow all labels (directions) on all pesticides.
    Keep all records!!
