Delaware Department of Agriculture warns about pesticide application scam
In the scam, the homeowner is told that they must leave their house for a period of twelve hours while the individual sprays crops in the nearby vicinity.
There are some indicators that these visits are a scam in an attempt to get the homeowner to leave their house unattended.
There are currently no agricultural pesticide spraying practices in Delaware that would require one to leave their home.
An agricultural pesticide applicator is required to prevent drift when spraying. ■
