The use of public health pesticides in California is a very important subject. It involves a number of programs, ranging from pesticide use reporting to the Department of Pesticide Regulation via County Agricultural Commissioners, Surveillance programs for resistance to pesticides by mosquitoes and other pests of public health importance, and training and certification of applicators of public health pesticides.
