General Use Pesticide Permit: Does your business need a license?
Posted by arthur1234 on February 4, 2009
Any business that sells pesticides is required to obtain a license to sell these products. This program is now being implemented by Consumer Protection Services.
Pesticides are defined as ” … a substance or mixture of substances intended for defoliating or desiccating plants, preventing fruit drop, inhibiting sprouting, or for preventing, destroying, repelling, or mitigating any insects, rodents, fungi, bacteria, weeds, or other forms of plant or animal life or viruses, which the Board declares to be a pest, except viruses on or in humans or animals.” according to Title 2 of the Oklahoma Statutes, Section 3-81(34). Most pesticides will have an EPA registration number on the container.
For your convienence, here is a complete list from the ODAFF website.
If pesticides are sold at your business, please fill out the form and return to the Department with the appropriate application fee. Please note that a separate application fee is required for each location of the business, but each business location can be listed on the same application form.
