In the U.S., each state has an agency in charge of pesticide-related issues.
It may be called the Department of Agriculture, Pesticide Regulation, Environmental Conservation or something similar. You might consider contacting your State Pesticide Agency for issues like these:
- How to comply with pesticide regulations
- How to become a certified pesticide applicator, operator or dealer
- How to find local opportunities for applicators’ continuing education
Here are the State Pesticide Agency contacts in the New England states:
