The Mississippi Pests of Ornamental Plants Bond is required by the State of Mississippi. The bond states that the bondholder shall honestly and faithfully conduct business and follow the license requirements of Professional Services under the provision of Sections 69-19-1 through 69-19-11, Mississippi Code 1972, as amended. This bond is for those who seek to have a license to engage in the control of any kind of pests.
There is no set bond amount as it would depend on the type of work that will be done. For insect, rodent and plant disease, the amount should not be less than $5,000. For weed control work, the amount should not be less than $2,500. It is imperative that the company issuing this surety bond must be licensed to operate in the state of Mississippi.
The license is issued by the Bureau of Plant Industry, Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce. Those applying for a license must be at least a high school graduate and must have sufficient years of experience in the field they would like to practice. They must also take and pass a written examination in order to be given a license.
