Pest control devices use mechanical or physical methods to trap, destroy, repel or mitigate any pest. No chemicals are used to control the pest. For example, glue boards, noise-makers and bug zappers are pest control devices. While they don't need to be registered as pesticides with the EPA, there are often other regulatory requirements. See the resources below or contact the EPA Pesticide Registration Division for more detailed information on regulated and unregulated pest control devices.
