Staff members from EOHS are licensed by the Ohio Dept. of Agriculture in various aspects of pesticide application and treatment. All problems regarding insects, rodents, or pests of any kind should be directed to EOHS. All treatment methods used by the department are environmentally safe and EPA approved. An integrated management approach to pest control, which focuses on prevention, rather than unnecessary treatment, is the concept used in our program. Whenever possible, "live traps" are used, and the captured animals are released.
The Federal Insecticide, Rodenticide, and Fungicide Act (FIFRA) is found in the Code of Federal Regulations Title 40 parts 150-189.
