I was thinking about becoming a liscensed fert and pesticide applier for next year. Right now I do lawn mowing, cleanups, brushhogging, some stone work, mulch and some light landscaping. My questions being, 1. How do I get licsensed in NYS? 2. Can I make enough $ at it to justify the extra expenses? 3. How much more did your insurance go up? 4. What do most of you charge, by the sq. ft? 5. What kind of equipment did you start out with and what did it cost? Any comments would be great.
