TCWP September Update
Welcome to the Teton County Weed and Pest District Monthly Update.
Our monthly update informs Teton County residents with useful and timely information pertaining to Mosquitoes and Invasive Species affecting Teton County and the greater Rocky Mountain Region.

LABELS ARE KEY TO CHOOSING THE CORRECT HERBICIDE.
There are currently 19 families of herbicides and thousands of different formulations and brand names available, which can make deciding which product to use seem daunting.
To help streamline the process, TCWP only carries products that treat species listed on the State Designated and County Declared Lists.

Don't forget that September 30th is the last day to purchase herbicides through TCWP for this year!

BIOLOGICAL CONTROL: WHAT IT IS AND HOW WE USE IT
Biological control is the introduction of a natural enemy or predator to control an invasive weed or pest. One reason invasive weeds may proliferate so well in a new environment is due to the potential
limitation of organisms that will attack or consume that plant whereas native species are in equilibrium with their natural enemies.

Bio agents in Teton County have been utilized on musk thistle, dalmatian and yellow toadflax, spotted knapweed, leafy spurge, common mullein, and St. Johnswort.

WEED OF THE MONTH: TOADFLAX
Never judge a plant by the beauty of its flower. Dalmatian and Yellow Toadflax are two plants that epitomize this saying. Both are noxious weeds that have tricked many landowners into letting them onto their property because of their beauty. 

The snapdragon-like flowers may look pretty, but let them loose on your property and you will most certainly NOT find them very beauitful for long. 


THE CHARTURE INSTITUTE'S MOSAIC  
A curated collection of 16 essays diving into various aspects of the health of the Teton County region’s ecosystem features an article by TCWP's Mark Daluge & Erika Edmiston about the health and maintenance needed to protect the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem from active and potential invasive species.
