    Yes, In Missouri to get a license is 7A or 7B, you need to work for a company for at least one year. That is to get a certified license.

    Are any of you using bait, if you are doing MOLE control.

    What kind of bait or traps are you using?

    Does your state require you to be licensed to apply bait?

    In the State of Missouri, if you are using bait for Mole control you need to be licensed in CAT 3. If you are just using traps you do not need to be licensed YET

    In the state of Texas, the Texas Department of Agriculture is the regulatory agency. Without the Pesticide license, you are allowed to apply fertilizer for hire. However, anything containing pesticide (Herbicides, Insecticides, Rodicides, etc) such as pre-emergent, weed & feed, etc. requires the license, to legally apply for hire. The penalty is $10,000 per violation!

    Texas does not reciprocate with Arkansas. Oklahoma will reciprocate with Texas or Arkansas.

    I only have one thing to say about getting a license, If you are a real PRO, and you are in this business as a career. You should want to get license just because it show you are a real PRO, and you know what you are doing.

    I agree with Pest Pro. If you are not licensed to apply pesticides, you do not belong in the club. There are many things that must be learned by the books FIRST, before applying anything in the yard. Fertilizers, and other pest or weed contols, can be very dangerous to landscapes or people if not handled and applied properly.
