Restricted-Use Pesticides

EPA classifies pesticides into two categories: general use pesticides and restricted use pesticides. Restricted use pesticides - which make up about a quarter of total pesticides used - may be applied only by or under the direct supervision of trained and certified applicators.

For information on how to become a certified pesticide applicator, please contact your pesticide State Lead Agency.

For a list of active restricted use pesticides, see the Restricted Use Products Report.
