A person using a General Use pesticide on his or her own property is
exempt. Restricted Use pesticides are prominently identified on all

but not General Use pesticides.
The Illinois Department of Agriculture certifies and licenses those

commodities. The University of Illinois Extension provides training
and study materials. This website covers training, publications, and
licensing information for these uses.
The Illinois Department of Public Health certifies and licenses individuals
using pesticides in and on man-made structures. This includes nuisance
