The Pesticide Control Program protects public health and the environment through regulation of pesticide use, sale, and distribution in Alaska.
*For complaints regarding pesticides, please see our How to Report a Pesticide Problem fact sheet or contact us at 800-478-2577 (in state).
Many uses of pesticides require the applicator to be certified and licensed with the State. For more information, please see our Certification and Training page.
