A private pesticide applicator's license is required for anyone using Restricted Use pesticides to produce an agricultural commodity on property they own or control. Applicants must attempt a private applicator examination and obtain a score of at least 70% correct once every three years.

Persons applying General or Restricted Use pesticide in the course of employment must be licensed by the Department of Agriculture as a commercial pesticide applicator. Commercial Pesticide Applicator / Operator Certification and Licensing.

The fee for a private pesticide applicator license is $30. Payment is made by mail after completion of the test. If a license is destroyed or lost, a duplicate license can be obtained from the Department by contacting our Springfield office at (217) 785-2427. The fee for a duplicate license is $5.

In order for an individual to fumigate their own grain storage facility with a pesticide, a grain fumigation category examination must be successfully completed. The license upgrade allows the individual to both purchase and use grain materials in their own grain storage facilities.

NOTE: In the event of inclement weather, please contact Reid Young (ryoun@illinois or 309-663-8306) to ensure that the exam has not been cancelled.
