Trusted Retailers

To ensure that they pose no unacceptable risk to human health, wildlife or the environment, most garden pesticides need to be approved for sale by the HSE.

Only after satisfying the HSE strict requirements can the products be approved for sale to the public.

All responsible and trusted retailers and online retailers purchase approved products for sale to the public directly from approved distributors. These products should only be sold to the public in the approved original packaging with the approved label.

Both distributors and trusted retailers will also have qualified, trained staff who will be able to, before purchase, answer most questions about using the correct product, how to and when to use and disposal.

If you suspect a pesticide product is being sold or distributed illegally or has been repackaged in anyway, please contact us and we will make enquiries and engage the authorities if appropriate.
