Pesticide dealer licenses are issued to individuals that distribute Class A or Class B pesticides within Vermont, whether via retail stores located in Vermont or online sales from companies located outside of Vermont. For dealers that sell only Class C pesticides, then only a Class C/Retail license is needed.
For dealers that sell either Vermont Class A or Class B pesticides, there must be one on-site full-time employee (32+ hours a week) that is a licensed dealer. The dealer is expected to know which pesticides they can sell, what recordkeeping requirements may exist, and how to clean-up and report any spills. Dealers must take and pass the dealer exam, then pay a fee of $50.00 for the license. There is no requirement for continuing education units (CEUs). Renewals are sent out annually in November.
