The Pesticide & Fertilizer Regulation section licenses pesticide dealers and applicators and offers training and testing sessions throughout the year. This not only helps assure the safe use of pesticides, it also helps prevent misuse and mishandling. The section licenses 30,000 pesticide applicators and more than 13,000 pesticide products. This section also administers the Clean Sweep Program which assists pesticide users with proper disposal of unusable and out-of-date pesticides and are free of charge to the public.
