    just wanted to let the newly licensed guys out there know, they WILL inspect you sooner or later, be prepared for it. i do want to say, everything went well the inspector had no issues with anything i was doing other than a minor adjustment to my records sheet. took maybe 40 minutes of my time, it was my lunch break so it worked out good timing wise. he said they try to inspect everybody every 5 years or so. mainly the point of my post is for the new guys, if you take the time to get licensed, dont skip the record keeping, he was telling me how uncommon it is for new guys to have the proper records. any of you guys/gals ever been inspected?

    The two most important things you can do to prepare for inspections are;
    Keep good records of all pesticide applications. Most States provide example record sheets you can use.
    Keep your pesticide storage area up to State standards. Each State has different rules, contact them for what is required.
