MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Homeowners and renters wishing to be notified when professional pesticide applications are going to be made in their neighborhood can now sign up online for a registry to get a heads up.
Free registration is now open through the website run by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection.
The deadline to join the registry is Feb. 1. Notices about pesticide applications will begin being sent March 15.
There are about 570 people currently on the registry for about 6,450 properties.
The registry has been in use since 1993.
