I too am sick of hearing this word.It is getting to be a real insult!If you look it up in the dictonary you will actually see that it is an insult!Here is what the dictonary says<p>any person,animal,or thing smaller than usual,or considered inferior. <p>Is this an insult?I think so.Some may not.But keep in mind when you use that word you may offend or hurt others.This is a place to help others.I'm not saying that this word should not be used I just though everyone should know what it means!I hope this will clear up the meaning of the word &quot;scrub&quot;.<p>----------<br>from:Adam<br>AB Lawn Care

Lazer:<br>Not all lawn care businesses do chemical apps.<br>I obtained my liscence in Ohio and I still don't know enough to give advice.<br>Maybe I'm a scrub.

Lazer,<p>If I may, what's the big deal with a Pesticide license? Anyone willing to do a little bit of study, and put the appropriate time in can possess one. here in Florida they make you jump through a few hoops that take three years. There are a finite number of chemicals and likewise a finite # of combinations. Entemology, toxicology and awareness of field conditions are your basic tools. Nothing too complicated. I would guess that the reason many don't know or care to know more is that they hire others to do that work for them. To be honest I don't blame them. some of that stuff is pretty toxic!<p>Anyway the word Scrub is pretty derogatory and should apply to others...<p>Thanks,<br>Albert

Here's my take on this all-too-important (not!) issue. I participate on the Landscapers forum on AOL in addition to this one. We have used the word SCAB instead of scrub for a couple of years over there. Here's a quick test to see if you might be a scab as we at AOL describe one:<p>1: Do you have insurance on your vehicles?<br>2: Do you have insurance on your machines?<br>3: Do you have business liability insurance?<br>4: Are you licensed to do business?<br>5: Do you pay taxes on all money received (including cash)?<br>6: When bidding a job do you always give a fair market bid (answer no to this one if you underprice just to get a job)?<p>If you answered YES to all of these questions than you are &lt;i&gt;probably&lt;/i&gt; a professional. If you answered no to one question then you know what you need to remedy. If you answered no to two or more than you are probably a scab/scrub. <br><p><font size="1">Edited by: Richard Martin

What does having insurance on your equipment have anything to do with being a scrub? This is just a personal descion by most people, with no correct answer.
