I am going to turf and ornamentals right now. Before I read a chapter I take the knowledge test first. I haven't failed one yet. I am going to have to go over the bugs a few more times. They have talked about a lot and they are very similar

Know how to I.D. bagworms, cutworms, webworms, and every other bug-type pest. This is the area I wish I studied more.

$45 test - General standards and Cat 24

$90 after you pass to actually get the license
And that $90 gets me the commercial applicators License and the pesticide applicators licence?

This ^^^ There were a lot of pest and disease identification questions on the test.

I read the books cover to cover once, then skimmed back through them again. Also use the sample questions at the end of each chapter to help study as well.

It wasn't that hard of a test if you read the materials and study a little bit... Imagine that haha

I am going to take all the knowledge test questions and turn them in to flash cards.

IIRC, the $90 only gets you the applicators license. Then like Inzane previously posted, you'll need to get proper liability insurance (the application has the amounts listed) and provide proof of insurance and have to list at least one licensed commercial applicator on payroll (if you're solo then that's obviously you) in order to get your Pesticide contractors license.

Think of it this way:
The contractor's license is for the business. The applicator's license is for the person applying under the name of the business.
