Pesticide Drift

Pesticide applicators are required to mitigate chemical drift. This means not spraying on windy days when chemicals can drift into non-target areas or neighboring properties. Residents who observe unwanted pesticide drift occurring in their yards can file a complaint with the Georgia Department of Agriculture’s Pesticide Complaints and Enforcement office’s KatiBeth Mims:  470-270-3044 or katibeth.mims@agr.georgia.gov

Her office will send someone to collect samples and, if evidence of drift is found, issue a warning to the operator.
