Placer County Agriculture Department ensures that pesticides are used in an appropriate and responsible manner that protects the environment, the public and applicators. County inspectors enforce laws and regulations pertaining to the use of all pesticides in agricultural, structural, right-of-way, landscape maintenance, and home use settings. Inspectors conduct field inspections of applications and pesticide storage as well as the records of pesticide dealers and employers with employees handling pesticides for compliance.
Appointments for pesticide permits can be made by calling: 530-889-7372.
