    I want to get my license to apply fert and such. I have the application but I'm not sure which boxes to check to mail it in. Can someone help me please?
    It looks like 6a and 6c is what I want but I want to be sure.

    Thanks, I looked at that link and it looks like I want 6a ,6c and 8

    Does that sound correct?

    Also what are the pros/cons of testing for more than that ,like say 10b (termite)?

    Sounds good. I had termite in NY (for doing wood destroying insect inspections for FHA mortgages). Wont be worth it for you unless you know someone in the mortgage business that does a lot of FHA loans. I would not get into treating termites/carpenter ants/borers due to the liability.
    8 seems to be for turf insects. Here in Illinois its combined w/ no special tests for just turf insects. It will be good for grubs etc.
