I passed the test on the first attempt today! Guess that's what I get for 3 months of daily study! I am prepared to start a chem application branch of business this spring and have many questions. I will read through many threads here, but there are a lot of inexperienced people here... I would appreciate any info from people with knowledge of this business. I am in need of a mentor! Within the next 30 days I will be buying all of my spraying equip and supplies for the year, and need some help on the chemical selection part of this. What chemicals do you always keep on hand? ---Pre-emergence, Post-emergence, insect, and fungus?? My plan is to attain 70-120 application accounts this season (already have quite a few lined up). A break down of each application on a property in one year?? Also, What is the best way that you guys are writing up proposals & giving straight bids on a job? you could foward me a copy of a simple proposal you give, it would be helpful. My plan is to start door knocking, sending post cards (currently), flier to driveway delivery (currently), and Money Mailer advertisement to 10,000 homes 3 times over the next 3 months (currently). celebrating now!! Thanks for any replies!
