News Coverage

The National Pest Management Association and the Association of Structural Pest Control Regulatory Officials surveyed state pesticide regulatory agencies about how they regulate PMPs.

| July 10, 2012

FAIRFAX, Va. — The National Pest Management Association and the Association of Structural Pest Control Regulatory Officials surveyed state pesticide regulatory agencies about how they regulate PMPs. Forty-eight states (all but New Jersey and South Dakota), the District of Columbia and two territories (U.S. Virgin Islands and Northern Marianas) responded.
 
The results are available to NPMA and ASPCRO members by clicking here. The results are available as either aggregate charts and tables or in an unformatted spreadsheet containing raw data, designed to allow users flexibility in evaluating the data.
 
The survey was conducted over a thirty-day period in the Spring of 2012 and was developed and executed by a committee comprised of Bob Rosenberg and Gene Harrington of NPMA and Derrick Lastinger (GA), John Campbell (MS), Cary Giguere (VT), Jay Kelley (IN) and Mike Kelly (TX) of ASPCRO.
 
Among the surveys key findings:
•    Every state regulates pesticide applications, but 53% regulate inspections, 41% regulate devices and 37% regulate non-chemical pest management,
•    Forty-two percent of states require licensing of "not-for-hire" technicians working at government facilities and 37% require licensing for "not-for-hire" technicians making applications at private facilities,
•    Only 6 states require criminal background checks for licensees, and
•    More than half of the states allow consumer information to be transmitted electronically
