Yes. Please ensure that your contractor is by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS), Department of Entomology. This is a mandatory requirement that is enforced by Florida State Statutes, under the provisions of the Structural Pest Control Act, Chapter 482. The great majority of landscaping companies out there DO NOT have the knowledge, license or respective insurance to apply herbicides and pesticides.
Protect your family, pets and community by ensuring that they meet this requirement. You can hire a separate company to take care of your pest control needs if desired.
