Pesticide Certification Expires Tuesday

NORFOLK - If you obtained your latest pesticide application certification in 2011, it expires Tuesday.  UNL Extension Educator Wayne Ohnesorg says all pesticide trainings have been completed for the year, but private applicators can still do a self-study that can be picked up at any cooperative extension office, or recertify online at the website pested.unl.edu.  He says the cost for either the self-study or the online program is $60.  Ohnesorg says for commercial and non-commercial applicators who allow their certifications to expire, the only option is to retest through the Nebraska Department of Agriculture.
