Tennessee Pesticide Applicator Bond

How much does a pesticide applicator bond cost in Tennessee?

New commercial pest control operators who have structural licenses (bird control, fumigation, general pest and rodent control or wood destroying organisms licenses) are required to have a $50,000 bond for the first three years of business. During the fourth year of business, the required bond amount will decrease to $10,000 per year. All other license categories are required to purchase a $10,000 bond. Pest control bonds for $10,000 of coverage can be issued instantly for $100 without a credit check. If your license requires $50,000 of coverage, your application will be submitted for underwriting consideration, and you’ll be provided with a free surety bond quote.

What’s the fine print?

The Tennessee Department of Agriculture requires each licensed commercial pesticide applicator to post a Tennessee pesticide applicator bond. The bond term varies depending on the type of pesticide application the principal will conduct.

How to become a pesticide applicator in Tennessee

The Tennessee Application of Pesticides Act (TAPA) regulates the application of pesticides. All companies that offer any custom pesticide application are required by TAPA to have a pest control charter. A charter is a permit issued by the Tennessee Department of Agriculture that authorizes a business to conduct itself as a commercial pest control company. Commercial pest control operators must purchase a charter for each business location. The charter requires each company to have at least one licensed worker for every service offered by the business.

Charters must be renewed every two years.
