Consumers use "general" use pesticides in and around their own homes and gardens in their daily activities. This is non-occupational pesticide use, does not require certification, and involves the use of home and garden products that are available in consumer retail channels.

 

There are a variety of educational resources available to help consumers use pesticides safely and/or learn about alternatives to the use of pesticides. Other resources help consumers gain knowledge about common pests and pest control associated with our daily lives and environment.
