Our mission is to protect Blaine County and its property owners from the harmful impacts of Noxious Weeds using Integrated Pest Management (IPM) control measures such as bio-control, cultural or manual methods, and herbicide control.

Additionally, we assist the public with identification and control methods for noxious weeds within Blaine County.

Our services include:

• Free site inspections and weed management plans
• Herbicide information and methods of application
• Weed identification and methods of control
• Equipment rental and loan programs
• Publications and education materials
• Public outreach projects
• Speeches, trainings, and other public engagements




Effective March 02, 2016, the Blaine County Board of Commissioners passed Noxious Weed Ordinance 2016:01, prohibiting the sale, planting, or possession of Yew. The full ordinance and detailed information can be read here. 



Many noxious weeds are pretty, but they quickly take over. Some of these plants are even poisonous,
like Poison Hemlock (shown above), which can be fatal to livestock if eaten.
