    Excerpt from most recent NC pesticide board meeting. They used to publish how much the fines were.

    The final portion of the meeting was dedicated to settle agreements. The first two cases dealt with pesticide drift. In both cases, the defendant applied a pesticide that drifted onto a neighboring yard, killing the vegetation. The final two cases illustrated a broken system. More specifically, it was discovered that a small pesticide business was operating for the past two years without the proper licenses to do so. This case revealed the need for an improved system that effectively tracks and monitors expiration dates for pesticide licenses.

    What the .. ?

    I'm really curious what they use now. Is it all just documented on a notepad in Susan's desk?

    Which Pesticide License Does Your Business Need?
    https://extension.psu.edu/which-pesticide-license-does-your-business-need

    Commercial or Public Pesticide Applicator License Required
    In Pennsylvania, anyone making pesticide applications to land that they (or their employer) do not own or lease is required to have at least one Certified Pesticide Applicator for each business address and name from which they operate.
    The Pesticide Applicator must be certified in the categories for the crops and use sites for which they will be making applications. These businesses or public entities will also require a business license through the PDA.

    Yep, every 6 months or so i used to get this sort of flyer in the mail called the "NC Pesticide Monitor" from the dept. of ag. It had all the violations and fines. That's gone. You have to dig deep on the NC Ag dept. website to find that info now.

    By the way, farmers = 70% of violations. Aerial applicators = 20% of violations. Landscapers & golf courses = 10% of violations.
