Applying pesticides in Indian country:

In addition to state certification and licensing, you need federal certification from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to apply restricted-use pesticides in "Indian country," defined as reservations and property owned by tribes.  After receiving certification in a Wisconsin category, you must apply to the EPA for certification, which will be based on the Wisconsin category.
