    That is what I did. I got my liablility through my homeowners insurance carrier. I also got a LITTLE BITTY discount for doing both through the same place.

    2 trucks @$1150 each./pest +business liability@900/pest license and "credits" to keep it current@ around $700. i been thinking, maybe its worth not having ins and pest license, ill tell u why: if i cancel them now, in 3 yrs ill save like 12 grand. now, even if i get into a little fender bender, ill have to pay out of pocket, like say $1000, im still ahead $13000. now, if i get caught applying pest without a permit, its an $800 fine, im still way ahead of the game. it could quite possibly be well worth the risk.
