DEP Encourages Proper Use of Pesticides and Fertilizers for Spring Maintenance of Homes, Lawns and Gardens

Posted by Alexandria Township on April 24, 2014

With spring boom in home, landscape, and gardening activities kicking up now, the DEP is urging NJ residents to use caution when applying pesticides, and to employ only licensed commercial pesticide applicators when hiring for pest controls services that include pesticide product applications. The DEP also would like to remind residents that they use lawn and garden fertilizers that comply with New Jersey’s strict content standards for nitrogen and phosphorus, or to hire certified fertilizer applicators for their lawn care. Professional pesticide applicators for weed, termite and household pest controls are licensed through the DEP’s Pesticide Control Program and are required to carry a license when applying pesticides. The use of pesticides by unlicensed and untrained applicators increases the risk of harm or damage to human health and the environment. The DEP’s Bureau of Pesticide Compliance is increasing efforts this spring and summer to bring unlicensed applicators into compliance with State pesticide regulations. Residents who suspect a misapplication of pesticide or wish to report an unlicensed applicator should call the bureau at (609) 984-6568 or the DEP’s 24 hour hotline, 1-877-WARN-DEP.
For pesticide health emergency, call the New Jersey Poison Information System at 1-800-222-1222
For do-it-yourselfers are asked to use fertilizer wisely by following the directions on the fertilizer bag and use the proper spreader settings. It is recommended to not apply fertilizer if a heavy rain is forecasted and to sweep up excess fertilizer.
