The limited pesticide applicator’s licenses allow the licensed applicator to apply pesticides to landscapes around buildings. There are 2 primary limited pesticide applicators licenses:
- Limited Commercial Landscape Maintenance (LCLM) for individuals who apply caution label pesticides in plants beds and shrubs on customer’s properties. Requires 6 hours of classroom training in LCLM.
- Limited Lawn and Ornamental (LLO) is for individuals who apply pesticides to government or business owned property.
Both licenses require the individual to successfully pass an examination. Licenses are maintained and renewed with Continuing Education Units (CEUs). The 6 hour class is packaged as an exam review session with CEUs for license renewal. The review is no substitute for time spent studying.
