Bear Lake County's Roadside Vegetation Management Strategy
Bear Lake County Weed Control
Bear Lake County is responsible for controlling the legally designated noxious weeds in their rights of
way (areas between the county road surface and adjacent property). The County weed department sprays
these areas annually or as needed with selective broadleaf herbicides. We also target many nuisance
broadleaf weeds (not on Idaho’s noxious weed list) at the same time.
The grass species are usually not targeted and left to grow on the roadside. We desire grass primarily to
help keep out broadleaf noxious weeds. With the absence of grass, broadleaf weeds often thrive unabated
in spite of aggressive herbicide treatment.
The HOA controls the weeds by the mailboxes, water buildings, dumpsters and the west side of the bike path.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
Homeowners are responsible for the weeds are on their properties, and for eradicating Dyer's Woad and other noxious weeds on their properties. The current list of Idaho Noxious Weeds can be found here
with further details and pictures. As of January 2015, the top weeds of concern in Bear Lake County are: Dyer's Woad
, Scotch Thistle
, Dalmation Toadflax
and Whitetop (Hoary Cress
). Please take the time to identify these weeds of concern and eradicate them properly from your property.
