What's in that can of Raid? Alaska knows!

The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation requires registration of all pesticide ingredients before a pest killer can be sold in the state. This information is shared with citizens via the Alaska Pesticide Registration database. Users can search by brand, ingredient or company. So you can find out what's in your can of Raid or find a vinegar based pest killer.

You won't find Alaska's pesticide registration entries on Google because Google can't index this database. It's part of what people like to call the invisible web. Now you see it. Go use it.
