The Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) issues licenses and/or certificates to:

  • Persons and businesses that apply or sell pesticides.
  • Pest control dealers and brokers.
  • Persons who advise on agricultural pesticide applications.

It also certifies pesticide applicators who use or supervise the use of restricted pesticides.

(Persons and businesses that conduct structural pest control for hire are licensed not by DPR but by the California Structural Pest Control Board

Only valid DPR licenses and certificates are included in these lists. However, recent changes in license or certificate status may not be reflected. The lists do not constitute legal records of licensing and certification. Please contact us at or call (916) 445-4038 to report any omissions or inaccuracies.

Note: If there are two 'issued or renewed dates,' this indicates a licensee or certificate holder recently added a category to an existing license or certificate. This reflects the effective dates that person may perform pest control work in the specific license or certificate category.
