    I just got the results back that I passed the GA Commercial Pesticide exam. That was a pretty hard test! I don't feel like a newbie anymore!

    Congrats Tadams !!

    I remember when I took the test, I worried myself sick for days. This is not a test for the unprepared. Expect to get a call from Rick With GDA. They usually want to inspect your operation within a couple of months. They'll want to see your application records, safety equipment, storage/mixing area. All the stuff on the test.

    What direction are you taking the buisness? Fert and squirt only? or add this to an existing cuting biz?

    Thanks for the support, guys.
    Kalyeah- I am taking classes at a local Tech school for Horticulture and it is one of the classes that I wanted to take.
    Luscious Lawns- I am already into the maintenance business and did a little fert, pre-m, pest., & round-up but I will start marketing as being licsenced and really pushing the service.

    Good job Todd! I passed mine in Wisconsin a few years back. I'm taking the University of Georgia's Certified Turfgrass Professional coarse right now. Hope to get threw it by spring.
