Fort Myers, FL asked in Consumer Law and Environmental for Florida

Q: What is the allowed distance between signs notifying me of pesticide application in a complex of about 100 homes?

I live in a condo and the association hires a landscaping company that sprays pesticide everywhere. I saw them applying it yesterday but found only one small sign in front of one of about 90 homes that are spread out over about 1/4 mile. This seems insufficient to warn consumers to stay off the lawn with their children and pets. Does the law say how many signs there should be?

A: You could check with the state or local agency that administers pesticide applicator licenses. In many states, it falls under the control of environmental or agricultural agencies. In Florida, it might be the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. If it's not under them, check with environmental protection agencies. Good luck
