Negative Pesticide Use Reports. A licensed maintenance gardener pest control business must submit a negative Pesticide Use Report to the county agricultural commissioner during any month in which they perform no pest control work in a county where the business is registered. They must do this by the tenth day of the following month. If the report is mailed, the postmark is the date of delivery.

Violations. When you perform pest control incidental to (in the context of) a maintenance gardening business, it is against the law for you to do any of the following:

  • operate without first having obtained a Pest Control Business License in the Maintenance Gardener Pest Control category from the Director of DPR

  • make any false or fraudulent record or report

  • operate in any county without first having registered with the county agricultural commissioner

  • operate equipment with incompe- tent or unqualified people in charge of the equipment

Each pest control dealer is responsible for the actions of each employee regarding the solicita- tion and sale of pesticides and regard- ing all claims and recommendations for the use of pesticides.

Govern- ment agencies are also exempt from having to be licensed as pest control dealers. Many county agricultural commissioners sell rodenticides and bird control materials at cost to the public.

County Registration. County registration for Pest Control Dealer Licenses is not required at this time.
