(Atlantic) Cass County Weed Commissioner Larry Randel gave his annual weed control report to the Cass County Board of Supervisors this morning.
Randel said one thing he has seen in the county that is getting worse is Canadian thistles.
“Normally you can’t see them until they flower, then they seed shortly thereafter and then it’s too late,” said Randel. “They are a tough weed to kill but there are herbicides out there that will just fry them.”
Randel said he has also received reports of Multiflora Rose growing in the state right-of-way in the Grant and Cumberland area. He said it is the States responsibility to take care of spraying those weeds in that area.
Randel also reported that he continues to issue warnings to county residents to keep noxious weeds under control.
