Pesticide Use Reporting and Recording

Last Updated: December 14, 2017

DoD requires that all pesticides used during military operations, excluding arthropod skin and clothing repellents, be recorded, reported and archived in Military Exposure Surveillance Library (MESL) External Link in accordance with DoDI 6490.03, Deployment Health External Link.  Deployed units are required to record daily pesticide use, consolidate and forward the reports monthly to APHC for archiving.  The APHC Entomological Sciences Program is designated as the DoD agency responsible for receiving all pesticide use reports generated during deployments from all Military Services.

An electronic Pest Management Report (DD Form 1532)/Pest Management Maintenance Record (DD Form 1532-1) External Link in Excel spreadsheet format is posted on the Armed Forces Pest Management Board (AFPMB) for downloading and recording. 

Deployed units are required to submit reports in electronic spread sheet format via e-mail as the preferred method for archiving to usarmy.apg.medcom-aphc.mbx.pesticide-hotline@mail.mil or by mail to:

ATTN:  MCHB-IP-EEN (Pesticides Archiving Coordinator)
