I recieved a letter a few days ago to the effect that if you are not a licenced applicator you cannot advertise that you offer chemical applications, even if you have a licenced subcontractor that handles this for you. I have to admit the thought of a bunch of Lawn guys going out to their trailers with a bottle of white out kind of made me chuckle. I think in the long term though this policy is going to be disasterous. Many people belive that because you have the licence you know what you are doing. I can see people who would never before have thought of applying foliar pesticides, now offering this service to their customers. Not because they know what their doing, but simpley because they are now licenced and can charge a fee. This can only lead to disaster. When the temps go up to 90 degrees and hacks start applying dursban or acephate at a high rate plant material is going to start dieing. The result will be higher insurance, tougher testing and tighter regulation with increased field inspections. I have been spraying for over 10 years, 6 of which were at a golf course. I have seen first hand the kind of damage that improper mixing and application can cause. I am not looking forward to the flood of licenced applicators this new policy is going to cause.
