FIGURE 2-3.

Before a restricted materials permit is issued, the county agricultural commis- sioner must consider local conditions, including the timing of applications in relation to bee activity.

conditions of use will be spelled out in each restricted materials permit, but every permit issued is conditioned on compliance with the registered label(s) and applicable laws and regulations.

Individuals and businesses engaged in pest control for hire must have available a copy of

  • the written pest control recom-

mendation

OR

  • the grower’s work order covering each agricultural use application of a general use pesticide or a pesticide that requires a permit

AND

  • the use permit covering each agricultural use application of a pesticide that requires a permit

Alternatives and Mitigation Mea- sures. Agricultural pest control advisers and growers must make pest control decisions with the aim of causing the least adverse impact on the environment. When determining when to use a pesticide that requires a permit, they must consider and adopt if feasible any reasonable, effective, and practical mitigation measures or use any feasible alternative that would substantially lessen any significant harmful effects on the environment.

Nonagricultural Restricted Materi- als Permit. Restricted materials permits for nonagricultural use may be issued to the operator of the property to be treated or to the designated pest control business licensee. A permit is valid for possession or use only by the person named in the permit. Your application for a restricted materials permit for nonagricultural use must include the following information:

  • name and address of the applicant (property operator or pest control business)

  • restricted materials to be possessed or used

  • pest or pests to be controlled

  • method of application

RESTRICTED MATERIALS • 25

for the pesticide application

Agricultural Restricted Materials Permit. Permits for agricultural use of restricted pesticides must be site and time specific. They may be issued only to the operator of the property to be treated, or when the county agricul- tural commissioner allows, to the operator’s authorized representative or licensed Agricultural Pest Control Adviser. In either case, however, the operator of the property is responsible for compliance with all permit condi- tions. A permit is valid for possession or use only by the person named in the permit. An application for a permit for the agricultural use of a restricted material must include the following information:

  • the name and address of the applicant

  • the location of each property to be treated

  • identification of all known areas that could be adversely impacted by the use of the pesticide or pesticides. These areas include, but are not limited to, hospitals, schools, playgrounds, residential areas (including labor camps), parks, lakes, waterways, wildlife management areas, or nearby livestock or crops. A map or aerial photograph may be used for designating such areas.

  • identification of each commodity, crop, or site to be treated

  • the anticipated pest problems for each crop pest or pests to be controlled

  • the restricted materials necessary to control each pest on each commodity, crop, or site

  • the approximate dates or crop stages of the intended pesticide application or applications

  • the expected method of application including the dilution, the volume per acre or other unit, and the dosage
