Pesticide Hypersensitivity Registry

Registry Purpose

The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture maintains a list of hypersensitive individuals who have requested to have their homes, places of employment, schools (if a student), and vacation homes placed in the Registry. The Registry is distributed to all commercial and public pesticide businesses 4 times per year. The pesticide application businesses are required to notify any person in the most recent registry if they will be making an application to an attached structure or an outdoor above ground pesticide application within 500 feet of any listed location.


The notification may be made by speaking to an adult through personal contact, by telephone contact, leaving a message on an answering device, by certified mail, by posting a notice on the front door at the listed location or speaking to an adult at the alternate phone number listed in the Registry.

Publication & Online Posting

Because the Registry is a public document, the information you provide is considered public information. By submitting the application for publication you are granting the Department the right to publish your information in printed form and have it posted to the Department's access controlled PaPlants website.
