Pesticide Licenses, Permits & Certificates Can Now be Renewed Online

ANNAPOLIS, MD – Businesses, public agencies and commercial applicators can now renew their pesticide licenses, permits or certificates online from any mobile or desktop device, 24 hours a day, through the Maryland Department of Agriculture (MDA) website. This online service also allows those renewing licenses to print their renewal certificates directly from a computer.

“We’ve put a lot of work into creating a system that makes pesticide renewal simpler,” said MDA Pesticide Regulation Program Manager Dennis Howard. “We hope that our customers will find the tools offered effective and convenient.”

Businesses renewing licenses can submit an online renewal application by entering the license number, type of business, and a code sent to them from MDA.

Along with renewals, consumers can search an online database for certified businesses, applicators and dealers of pesticides. Searches offered online also include information about pesticide renewal and recertification courses.

Renewals and database searches can be done visit here.

Pesticide businesses and individual pesticide applicators are required by law to be trained and certified in proper handling, storage and use of pesticides to prevent accidents and promote safe usage. For more information about pesticide regulation and licensing, visit here.
