Registration Open Until February 1st to Receive Landscape Pesticides Advance Notices

Open enrollment for the landscape pesticide registry is November 1 – February 1.

The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection offers a landscape pesticide registry, which allows Wisconsin residents to be notified 12 hours before commercial pesticide applications are applied to neighboring landscapes.

To be notified, you must provide you contact information and a list of places you which to be notified about that are located on or immediately adjacent to the block where you live. Then you will be contacted when lawn care companies are going to apply pesticides to those areas. There is no cost to this service.

The registry applies only to commercial landscape applications and does not apply to landowners who apply their own pesticide, applications to the inside or outside of buildings, or use in agriculture.

You must register every year, as the list is updated yearly. You can register online on the landscape pesticide registry website or download the form to fill out and register by mail.
