Dyer's Woad Noxious Weeds
Noxious Weed are YOUR Concern
There are very few areas of Franklin County that are free from the debilitating effects of noxious weed infestations. Our beautiful forests, pastures and meadows have become home to weeds such as these pictured here. There are 57 weeds listed on the State of Idaho Noxious Weed list. 
What is a noxious weed? In brief, these plants are not native to Idaho, are very invasive, and are harmful to humans, animals, the environment or economy. In a short time, these weeds will crowd out native and beneficial plants. Their presence affects everyone by decreasing property values, loss of livestock or wildlife grazing lands or actual health risks. Idaho law requires landowners to control noxious weeds on their properties. The Franklin County Weed Control Department is available to assist you in your efforts by offering a number of services. Please give us a call at 208-852-0653 for weed identification and advice on spraying.
