    I know many have wondered how can they get a license. Becoming an applicator can be an expensive and lengthy process in many states. (It varies state to state) I was thinking one easy way would be for carpet cleaners to team up with a local pest control company. They could approach the owner and ask could they become a registered technician under their applicator license. Then they could offer pest control for their business. I will look more into this option and report back to this thread.

    I don't think you can do it in cali without some special lic.
    Look into it though and let me know how it goes.

    Maybe we need a sticky that has links for each state.

    @Rob Allen -I do not think it would be hard to create links for every state with what is needed to get the licence. It could be a valuable resource for new guys thinking about getting into pest control.
