Noxious Weeds Control Program-2022

It’s that time again! 

JUNE 2022

Time to spray the noxious  weeds, they’re starting to grow. We have a few aggressive weeds in our neighborhood that can get out of control in a short period of time. (See details below) Please remember that each lot owner is responsible for weed control on their property. You can do this yourself or hire someone. Your property will never be free of weeds unless those around you treat their land as well.

Colorado’s Timber Ridge Metro District(CTRMD)  provides lot owners with free chemicals for spraying. You will receive Amine (2, 4-D herbicide) with  a Surfactant Premier 90  and a blue dye. Please see attached file with Label and Instructions. You can get them from Bob Hines by texting  Bob at   406-581-3925, 1211 Cool Pines, or email to montanafishing@yahoo.com.  Please bring two small plastic bottles to put the chemicals in. They are concentrated and must be mixed with water in a pump sprayer.   (Please TEXT Bob no phone calls please)
We need Volunteers to spray the right of way on our streets.  If you are interested in Volunteering please contact Rich Shildt at 

rshildt@cox.net

We will have an education/spray date on Wednesday, June 15 th.  Meet at the clubhouse at 8:30 am. We will have a short educational talk and then spray the weeds around the clubhouse and pump station. Bring a pump sprayer and wear long pants, gloves, and sunglasses for protection.

Some of you may not be familiar with the noxious weeds that grow in our neighborhood.  The weeds that we are mostly concerned with are Thistle, Common Mullein, Yellow Toadflax (Butter and Eggs), Leafy Spurge and Curly Dock. See links below for more information on each species.

Thistle: https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/agconservation/canada-thistle

Common Mullein: https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/agconservation/common-mullein

Yellow Toadflax: https://www.swcoloradowildflowers.com/Yellow%20Enlarged%20Photo%20Pages/ linaria.htm#vulgaris Glyphosate (RoundUp) works better for this weed than Amine.

Leafy Spurge: https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/agconservation/leafy-spurge If you discover this weed on your property, you will need a different herbicide than Amine. Contact Bob Hines.

Curly Dock: http://ipm.ucanr.edu/PMG/WEEDS/curly_dock.html
