Mandatory Control Weeds Cost-Share
Removing a small population of a noxious weed before it’s allowed to spread across the landscape saves a lot of time and money over time. We offer cost-share management practices at 50%, for any noxious weed on our class A or class B designate list, and priority weeds on our class B and C lists. If we perform the work, our minimum charge is $20.00.
We rent 4-gallon back-pack sprayers and 100-gallon slip-in power sprayers that fit into a pick-up truck bed. Weed Board staff will facilitate landowners in developing and implementing their weed management programs. We will calculate the amount of herbicide needed or instruct landowners on how to operate our rental equipment. We will identify and provide pictures and information for any noxious weed to any landowner.
We offer assistance in developing a biological control of weeds program for larger weed populations, such as spotted knapweed, Dalmatian toadflax, Canada thistle, and St. Johnswort. Biological agents (insects) are screened and tested through a long and scientifically structured process to ensure they are specific to the target weed. Procuring the agents, releasing and monitoring them are supported by grant funding and are offered free to landowners.
