ATTENTION PRIVATE CERTIFIED PESTICIDE APPLICATORS
Private Certified Pesticide Applicators can now apply for their license using the Pay for a License online service. Even though Private applicator licenses have a $0 fee, one still has to apply for the license using the $0 invoice generated for that purpose.
