    Remember anything on the exam about state insurance minimums? If not:
    A.) your state doesn't have them.
    B.) you didn't pass your exam

    In Ohio it is a minimum of 300,000 ,but I could not find a company that would write for this amount. Every company I checked with wanted a 500,000 policy and recommended at least 1,000,000 for a few dollars more a year. I pay about $500 a year. My company covers me in Ohio and Pa as I am licensed in both states.

    How about the Kansas City area? I'm having a little bit of trouble trying to find pesticide insurance.
