Apply for a permit to use pesticides around your home

Domestic pesticides

You can apply pesticides without a permit, in and around your residences if you are more than 30 metres away from an open body of water.

You need a pesticide use or service permit:

  • to use pesticides within 30 metres of an open body of water; or
  • if you are a landlord applying pesticides in a tenant's home.

Only trained professionals are permitted to apply domestic pesticides on daycare, nursing home and school or hospital property. You need a pesticide use or service permit and a pesticide applicator's certificate
