New IPM Requirements - 2013:
New regulations became effective on March 7, 2013 that eliminate the requirement for pesticide-use permits for most applications on state owned lands. However, state agencies are required to develop and implement an Integrated Pest Management Plan (IPM Plan) prior to applying pesticides on state lands or rights-of-way. See our IPM Plans page for more information.
To determine whether your pesticide project requires a permit or an IPM Plan, see our Requirements page.
Permits & IPM
Many uses of pesticides require the applicator to be certified and licensed with the State. For more information, please see our Certification and Training page.
