Media Release: 

Cass County Weed Control will begin spraying for noxious weeds in the county, state and township road rights-of-way.

Spraying for Leafy spurge, Canada thistle, Absinth wormwood and other noxious weeds will continue through the summer and
into the fall.

The public is advised to be watchful of equipment working on the road shoulders and road ditches. Landowners wishing to
mow their adjoining road ditches are asked to wait several days after the spray crews have sprayed in their area. This will allow
the herbicide to affect the weeds. If spray crews encounter a recently mown road ditch, that area will not be sprayed, but will
be targeted for a later application.

Landowners are welcome to call the Weed Control Office to determine if spray activities have been completed in their area or to report weed infestations sites.

For further information, call Stan Wolf, Weed Control Officer at
