    I don't know if merit is on the restricted list or available over the counter in NJ. Sometimes it depends on the formulation so something might be available without a license.

    But you need a license to apply ANY pesicide in NJ if you are doing it for hire, or for agriculture. Technically, you need a license to spray a wasp's nest with raid.

    To answer your REAL question. Yes merit is an RUP in NY and no you cant buy it in NJ and then sneak it back over the border to apply in NY. They will catch you, it has been tried already with other products.
