Why do I need this bond?

The Tennessee Department of Agriculture requires each licensed commercial pesticide applicator to post a Tennessee pesticide applicator bond.

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.

Tennessee pesticide applicator surety bonds ensure that the principal (commercial pesticide applicator) complies with all of the rules and regulations found in the Tennessee Application of Pesticides Act of 1978, including faithfully adhering to all written contracts, not using pesticides other than as instructed on their labels, and only allowing licensed operators to supervise branch offices.

What’s the fine print?

Pesticide applicator license bonds are issued for a one-year term and must be renewed for the applicator to remained license. Upon paying the renewal premium, the applicator will be provided with a new bond.

How to become a commercial 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 and must be renewed every two years. 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.
