Tired of thistles?

The Regional District had a booth at the spring festival last week, it was about invasive weed and plant control.
Herbicide free options include insect introduction to deal with :

  • Diffuse Knapweed
    Spotted Knapweed
  • Dalmatian toadflax
  • Hounds Tongue
  • Leafy spurge
  • St. Johns Wort
  • Thistles ( select species)

Merritt is circled by a large rural population of land holders, maybe you might not be using insects to control weeds but your friends may want to . Also in the city there are bylaws against bad weeds over a certain height and they need to be removed by cutting if necessary. To that end the TNRD is having a long term strategy to control select invasive species with insects.

An assessment of your property is available by contacting the TNRD   They say that free insects are on a first come first serve basis.
