Pest Control FAQ
You need a Private Applicator License in order to purchase, use, or supervise the use of any restricted use pesticide on your property or the property of your employer, while engaged in the production of an agricultural commodity.
Application and Exam Registration for Private Applicators
When not engaged in the production of an agricultural commodity, a Commercial Applicator License in the appropriate category is required to purchase, use, or supervise the use of restricted use pesticides on your property or the property of your employer.
Application and Exam Registration for Commercial Applicators
If you are licensed in another state with substantially the same standards as Georgia, all or part of the examination requirements may be waived. The Reciprocal License Application is a downloadable form that you will need to fill out and send to us. The fee for this application is $90.
