State Governing Agencies

Nationally, pesticides are regulated by the federal government (Environmental Protection Agencie). States then have their own agencies that both further authorize the use of pesticides and regulate the application of these pesticides by consumers and by certified pesticide applicators (PCO - Pest Control Operators).

The following is an alphabetical list, by state, of the governing agencies with links, where ever possible, to their web sites. If you have any questions, just ask Pestdude!
