Is it the license you need?

If part of your business is applying herbicides (including Roundup) or certain pesticides to plant beds, the State of Florida requires that you have a limited pesticide license.  Operating without one could mean a $5,000 fine.  Even more, it could increase your liability in case of an accident.

To become licensed, you need to take a 6-hour course and a written exam.  If you are like many people, taking the time and money to go through the course, especially if you are uncomfortable with taking the exam, is really difficult.  Therefore, you put it off, again and again. County Extension can help because we have access to all the University’s resources, we can give you the very best instructors and programs.

Extension will make the 6-hour limited pesticide course easy, interesting and useful. You will get a professional edge too.

Being licensed means complying with the law – but it also means you can run your business better and smarter.  The licensing course will provide you with information you will use every day – on issues like laws, safety, labeling, and integrated pest management.

 

Even more, have a license will give you extra credibility with your clients, since they will know you have the expertise to maintain their property, and the environment, too.
