How do I go about reporting a pesticide misuse to authorities?

I feel that a pesticide has been misused. How do I go about reporting this misuse to authorities?

Pesticide misuse can be reported to your state pesticide regulatory agency. In Virginia, this is the Office of Pesticide Services, which is part of the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. There are regional pesticide investigators located throughout Virginia who will investigate pesticide misuse situations. Information on reporting pesticide misuse is available on the VDACS web site.
