Restricted Use Pesticides (RUP)
A pesticide, or some of its uses, is classified as restricted if it could cause harm to humans (pesticide handlers or other persons) or to the environment unless it is applied by certified applicators who have the knowledge to use these pesticides safely. Restricted Use Pesticides are available for purchase and use only by certified pesticide applicators or persons under their direct supervision.
