Pesticide Dealer Resources

Pesticide dealer licenses are issued to individuals that sell Class A or Class B pesticides from a retail outlet located in Vermont. For outlets that sell only Class C pesticides, only a retail license is needed.

For outlets 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 the outlet can sell, what records may be required to be kept, and how to clean-up and report any spills. Dealers must take and pass the dealer exam, then pay for the license. There is no requirement for continuing education units (CEUs). Renewals are sent out annually in November.
