Noxious Weed Control
Noxious Weeds: The Cancer on Our Land
Noxious weeds pose a serious threat to all Idahoans and to the land we call home. Control and managing Idaho’s 67 noxious weed species requires an understanding of the problem, and that begins with detection and identification of noxious weeds.
Notice To Control Noxious Weeds
It shall be the duty and responsibility of all landowners to control noxious weeds on their land and property, in accordance with Title 22, Chapter 24 (22-2407).
Noxious weeds cost millions of dollars to Idaho by:
|Fouling recreation sites from use||Chocking streams & waterways|
|Poisoning & injuring livestock & humans||Crowding out beneficial native plants|
|Degrading wildlife habitat||Creating wild fires in our forests & Idaho’s range land|
The spread of noxious weeds in Idaho may signal the decline of entire ecological watersheds. They severely impact the beauty and create widespread economic losses. Noxious weeds are huge problems for our urban as well as rural areas, and for private, state, and federal lands. Valley County noxious weed species spare no segment of society – rancher, hunter, hiker’s and fisherman alike – and when unmanaged they spread rapidly and unceasingly and silently.
Noxious weeds presently in Valley County include:
