Ada County Weed Pest and Mosquito Abatement
Ada County's 5 Worst Weeds
According to Idaho Code 22-2407, Idaho property owners carry the primary burden of controlling noxious weeds on their land. County Weed Superintendents may only treat noxious weeds on private property if the landowner fails to fully mitigate the situation. In such instances, the County will treat the noxious weeds and bill the property owner for the weed control efforts.
If you are a landowner, it pays to know your noxious weeds. It is important you monitor your property regularly since noxious weeds can rapidly spread from a small problem that is easily and/or cheaply controlled, to one that is not! In some situations, the cost of controlling a heavy noxious weed infestation can exceed a home's value and/or potential income of the land itself.
These are the five weeds that are most likely to cause problems to a landowner in Ada County. These noxious weeds invade by windblown seeds, or through creeping roots. These weeds will “take over” and cause real problems if left untreated, and they can be very expensive to control. You, the landowner, are responsible for the cost of controlling the noxious weeds on your property. Early treatments, if problems arise, are by far the most economical solution.
