In the latest Ristwatch (pdf), you probably read about the problems our area is having with Leafy Spurge and Dalmation Toad Flax. The Larimer County Land Stewardship Manager has some tools to help you with noxious weeds like these on your own property.

Larimer County Land Stewardship staff is working with the Colorado Department of Agriculture to release, monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of flea beetles as an insect biocontrol for leafy spurge. This biocontrol has the potential to be particularly useful for landowners with large infestations of leafy spurge on steep slopes. For more information contact Lexie Sorenson at (970) 498 5765.
