    Having the limited license, we are required to put a sign in yard or shrub bed describing what we sprayed. That being said, where the heck do you get these signs? I looked at blackburn & rnd, but the minimum to order is 1,000. It would take me 10 years to use that many as I only service 250 or so clients a week, with about 30 getting weed control in beds. I was thinking more like 100 signs would do me good for a while, and some of them are reusable. Anyone know where to get less than 1,000? And personalized?

    I have never seen anyone using their limited actually use a sign. Just as the law says that you must contact the persona and inform them that you are applying prior to doing so and you do not see TG or them calling the customer. However if you feel the need, a simple google search will bring many results.

    you dont ever need to put on a sign what chemical you sprayed. The sign simply says something along the lines of "pesticide applied" and a re entry time like "stay off until dry"

    and log what you sprayed and where you sprayed it.

    yup, want to be prepared for your inspection and chemical audit. But for a limited lis. you will likely never need any of this.

    Lesco/Jdl has generic "Pesticide applied, keep off till dry" signs. You can buy in small quantities. Add special notes by hand if needed. Or use a rubber stamp for small quantities. Signs are required in Michigan. But customers seldom pay them any attention. Spray solution dries in 10 minutes.

    I was just planning on using our graphic guy. Have him make them up just like a bandit yard sign but smaller. Wont be using them all day everyday. So I figure this will work. Ill use them adhere to rules and advertise

    If you fail I will refund your money, it is an open book test and probably the easiest exam on the planet. Anyone who fails this test shouldnt be spraying suntan lotion never mind herbicides.

    Read a Round up label and you will pass. The books are great info but you won't use them in class.
