The Pesticide Program conducts the testing, licensing, re-certification and auditing of pesticide applicators in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The Department issues four types of pesticide licenses. The pesticide license that you need depends on several factors, including the types of pesticides you will be using or selling in your work and where you will be applying those pesticides.
