Be advised that due to staff limitations related to the COVID 19 health emergency, processing and mailing of pesticide licenses may experience significant delays. Please allow 6 to 8 weeks for license arrival via mail. During that time as always, you may access and print the status of your payment and license. This printed information will be honored by enforcement inspectors until such time that your actual license is received. To find and print your license status use Online Reports and select one of the following as appropriate from the alphabetical list of reports. There are two reports for each to be searched by either name or license number:
- Applicator Business
- Certified Pesticide Dealers
- Commercial Certified Pesticide Applicators
- Commercial Pesticide Operators
- Pesticide Dealer Information
- Private Certified Pesticide Applicators
Should you still need to pay for a license, find reports in the list for:
- Look Up Your License Invoice Number – Businesses
- Look Up Your License Invoice Number – Individuals
With an invoice number you can Pay For Your License Online
