Last Chance Pesticide Education Credit Opportunity: 2019 Pest Management Tour


Montana Private Pesticide Applicators in District 2 who wish to recertify their pesticide licenses must obtain six recertification credits or take a closed book exam at an MSU Extension office by December 31, 2019. Applicators in Powell County will receive a letter.  The mailing label on the envelope containing this letter has your private applicator credits accumulated for the current recertification cycle or you can look up complete credit information details here:
