Check for Compliance on Pesticide Dealer, Applicator and Operator Licenses
2. Check to be sure your licenses are current ahead of making any sale or applying any product. This goes for both licensed applicators and licensed operators.
3. When you sell restricted use pesticides, the person buying them must also have a current applicator license.
4. You must keep records of the sale of restricted use pesticides for two years and also keep a record of commercial application for two years. This is state and federal law. Click here for a guide on what needs to be on the record of application.
You can check the status of your Illinois Pesticide Dealer, Commercial Applicator, Operator and Private Applicator licenses on the Illinois Dept of Agriculture website. Click here for the IDA website where you check for applicator, operators and pesticide dealers by last name and other searchable features.
IDA inspectors do check for compliance and the fines for not being properly licensed or selling RUP products to non-licensed persons can be substantial. Please call IFCA if you have questions about these regulations.
