public liability coverage of the applicant or licensee for personal
injuries for not less than $100,000 per person, or $300,000 per occurrence,
and, in addition, for not less than $50,000 per occurrence for property
damage, resulting from structural pest control. The insurance policy shall
be in effect at all times during the license year and a new certificate of
insurance shall be filed with the Department within 30 days after the

registration renewal shall not be required to provide evidence of public
liability insurance coverage.

education program on the proper use of pesticides and for other activities
related to enforcement of this Act and the Illinois Pesticide Act.
