- Anyone applying pesticides to produce an agricultural commodity for sale or distribution must be licensed as a Private Applicator (for example, growing fruits, vegetables or Christmas trees);
- Anyone applying pesticides on a property of another must be licensed as a Commercial Applicator (for example, control of pest insects, invasive plants or as part of your work, for example, golf course use); or
- Anyone selling or distributing restricted use pesticides in the state must be licensed as a Dealer.
