If your not learning you going backwards. We are always learning. You can teach us all something about marketing, your signs stands out more than the westwego sign! good placement!

Thts a nice pic. Only problem the wego signs are in the middle of a highway and have no irrigation. And no way of putting irrigation. I water the signs myself once or twice a week using a 250 water tote I put in the back of my truck.

The Texas exam has 250 questions. How many questions did your have? As long as you have the right demographics you make make good money. I did Fipronil treatments last week and made over $5000. I wish I had a lot more Fipronil work to do.

the applicators exam is more than one part.
you have to pass the General applicator exam first. its 100questions
then the different pesticide catergories. ornamnetal & turf was 60 questions.
i recommend going to a Certification class put on by the La Pest Manangement Assoc before taking the exams.

the Landscape Horticulturist exam is between 34-40 questions i think depending on which version you get.

i plan to take the ROW applicator test after i take arborist.
