Is a SOS required if there is no compensation?

    Does one have to provide a SOS (statement of service) to a customer if you are not being paid for the application. I am going to apply round-up to cracks in a sidewalk for a commercial business that I mow for (should I get the job). I wrote down on the estimate that this service is at no charge. I am from the state of Kansas. I know different states have different regulations, but curious what you think. The customer did not care either way. I am only doing this to benefit myself and is not very much, thus the no charge.

    What do you think?

    You're being compensated for the whole job, whether you bill that service or not you need to be liscensed and insured for pesticide applications to be legit.

    I would say ,Yes. Even if its only for your records. Any chemical(s) applied should be logged, for your records.
  4. Note on door, sign at entrance to drive, and record at office, even freebies.
