Successful weed management starts with proper identification
What is it? Is it noxious? Is it native? Is it poisonous? Is it even a weed?
Weeds can fall under many different categories, and sometimes the same weed can fall into many of these. The first step in successful weed management is accurate identification and understanding of its life cycle. We are available to identify weeds both in the office and on site. There are also numerous resources online to help identify the weed in question, along with descriptions of feasible control options and methods, here are a few of our favorites:
After the weed in question has been identified, you'll need understand what your responsibilities are with regard to control, which control options are best suited for the site and the weed in question. We always encourage the development of an Integrated Management Plan (IMP) to achieve the highest level of long-term success in noxious weed control.
Give us a call right away! Have the plant in question on hand to help with the identification. Providing a plant sample and/or arranging for a site visit will likely be needed for confirmation.
