PESTICIDE APPLICATOR CERTIFICATION

If your private pesticide applicator certification has recently expired, or will expire soon, you need to register for re-certification.  

Anyone who intends to purchase, mix, load, apply, or direct the use of restricted use pesticides as a private applicator must be certified.  Certification is good for five years.

You must re-certify before your expiration date if you want to continue to use restricted-use pesticides. (Check your certification card for the exact date.)
