The notification requirements for pesticide application vary from state to state. (Pesticide Applicator certifications are run by states.) In NY, the DEC requires Certified Pesticide Applicators to provide copies of the pesticide label, rather than the MSDS: "Except as provided in paragraph c of this subdivision, every certified applicator shall, prior to the application of a pesticide within or on the premises of a multiple dwelling, building, or structure other than a dwelling supply the owner or his agent, with a copy of the information, including all warnings, contained on the label of the pesticide to be applied."

The saying about pesticide labels has been: "The label is the law". It identifies approved target pests, application rates, etc..
