Control tips:

The following list of resources is intended to provide an overview of weed control and herbicides. If you have specific questions about herbicides, or about any of the information provided below, feel free to call NPIC.

If you just want some advice about how to control weeds, you may want to talk with staff at your local cooperative extension service. NPIC Specialists cannot give treatment recommendations, but extension agents often can. NPIC Specialists can answer your questions about an herbicide's potential health impacts, environmental effects, and/or chemical properties. Our mission is to provide objective, science-based information about herbicides in order to empower people to make their own informed decisions.

If you have questions about this, or any pesticide-related topic, please call NPIC at 1-800-858-7378 (8:00am - 12:00pm PST), or email us at npic@ace.orst.edu.
