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 a fee of $50.00 for the license. There is no requirement for continuing education units (CEUs). Renewals are sent out annually in November.
