Pull out those yellow cards and take a second glance at the expiration date! Renewal time for pesticide applicators is quickly approaching and it’s time to get those last minute hours in before it’s too late. Private pesticide applicators are required to have 15 Hours of Continuing Educations every 5 years to renew their TDA license. Of the 15 required hours two must be in Integrated Pest Management, two in Laws and Regulations, and the remaining can be in any combination of General, Integrated Pest Management, or Laws and Regulations.
