Florida Pesticide Applicator License Sponsor Needed

florida_lawnJanuary 11, 2007

Anyone licensed in Florida with Full Commercial Applicator License like to make a percentage of my business for a year? I need someone to apply for my ID# card to establish timeline of one year and take distance learning classes in order to meet requirements of state, then take exam. I can not hire other employees with license yet, only doing lawn care part time for 20 clients, whom have asked if I can do some lawn pest control for them.

I have contacted my Local Region 14 Larry L. Mitchell Bureau of Entomology and Pest Control Inspector - mitchel@doacs.state.fl.us (239) 278-7200 he confirmed that I will have to find a lincensed business in Florida that I can bill my work through which will give me a Florida application ID to establish timeline of one year of work, or hire someone who has a Florida license (not really prepared to do this yet), and take college credits in order to get licensed.

Thanks

Fred

Also, wanted to assure everyone I intend to follow the NOFA requirements in order to be certified after attending their Organic Land Care Program classes.
Thanks

I'm not sure that this forum is the best place for you to try to locate a business, Fred. I think I'd be hauling out the local yellow pages and making personal appointments, if I were you. That way, you'll be able to select (personally) a business that you would WANT to be associated with.

Good luck!

Thanks for your follow up, that is good idea and I'll look outside of territory I'm in for fellow organic lawn care companies. I think I need to look outside territory as I will be a competitor to locals and hope for positive sponsor by way of their interest in the organic methods.

This is a challenge however and the only place I have seen folks talking about commercial organic lawn care is these forums hence the post here.

Thanks
Again Fred
