I looking to another hire a spray tech. Now if I hire one who has been spraying then he will bring his own bad habits. If I hire one who has never been near the business. I have a large learning curve to deal with. Therefore my thinking is to find someone who has been in the green industry but not Spraying. Of course sober and reliable with good attitude are import. The desire to one day pass the test and be certified is also a very desirable to me. Someone working under my licenses for the required time can sit for 3 different tests 1. Pesticide 2. Irrigation 3. Commercial Landscape. I feel I have a lot to offer someone with the desire to get ahead, but don't want to spin my wheels with a jerk. Now my question is how do I advertise to find such a person. We work year round and we don't have the advantage of plowing snow. But our summer can be very hot and humid. Sometimes we must spray in the early morning and late afternoon taking the middle of the day off. However it is not as physical demanding as lawn mowing or other type labor. No spreaders to push I have power walk behinds and Walker Mowers set up as spreader-sprayers. Of course here in the Bug Capital we will always have to drag hose. However I use 3/8 hose instead of 1/2 and the weight is a lot lighter.
