Information for Pesticide Dealers

Pesticide dealers are individuals who are licensed to distribute restricted use pesticides.  Each location from which restricted use pesticides are sold must have a separate person who is licensed as a pesticide dealer.  Dealers must maintain records of all sales or other distributions of restricted use pesticides for two years from the date of sale and must make these records available to Pesticide Regulation field staff inspectors upon request.
