Hiring a private pesticide company?
Monmouth County Mosquito Control Division recognizes that
some residents may wish to hire a private pesticide company to control flying
mosquitoes on their properties. Please note that none of these companies
are affiliated in any way with the Monmouth County Mosquito Control
Division. Any suggestion to that effect is simply false.
When hiring a private company, please ask to see the labels
of the products being applied. The person applying a product registered
as a pesticide with USEPA on a property other than his or her own must be
licensed by the NJDEP Pesticide Program. To apply pesticides specific to
mosquitoes, the person must be licensed in Category 8B Mosquito Control.
Some products, such as plant-derived essential oils, are not regulated as
pesticides. Therefore, a license is not required to use these products.
