If the proposed treatment is for fly control,
send your application directly to the Pesticide Control Program
(see address below.)
If the proposed treatment is for mosquito
control, contact your County
Mosquito Control Agency to arrange to have your equipment
inspected and to discuss your proposed control program. Your
equipment should be properly maintained and calibrated beforehand,
so that you can actually demonstrate it to the county. Bring
this permit application with you to your county mosquito control
agency. They need to sign-off on it. The county mosquito control
agency will send the application to the Pesticide Control
Program for our review. If your county mosquito control agency
will not cooperate in this program, contact the Pesticide
Control Program at (609) 984-6666 for alternate instructions.
