MOTTO: Let’s Pull Together Against Noxious Weeds!

The Adams County Weed Department is dedicated to serving the landowners of Adams County. By working together we can identify, form a plan of action, and treat any noxious weeds that have invaded the lands of our county.

Noxious weeds are vandals that destroy the production capacity, the property value, the recreational value and the natural beauty of the land. We cannot afford to let them spread unhindered over our properties.

Section 22-2407 of the Idaho Code states:

LANDOWNER AND CITIZEN DUTIES

  1. It shall be the duty and responsibility of all landowners to control noxious weeds on their land and property, in accordance with this chapter and with rules promulgated by the director.
  2. The cost of controlling noxious weeds shall be the obligation of the landowner.
  3. The cost charged by Adams County Weed Control to spray weeds on private property, established by the Board of Commissioners, is as follows:
Labor
$24.00/hr
Truck
$29.00/hr
ATV
$19.00/hr
Herbicide
Cost of Product

The Adams County Weed Department and the landowners of this County are fortunate to have an advisory board consisting of landowners and land managers: The Adams Cooperative Weed Management Area Advisory Board. Through the assistance of this board we have been able to apply for grants and cost share moneys to help the residents of Adams County in treating noxious weeds. As an example: we have purchased some weed treatment equipment with Idaho Department of Agriculture cost share funds. This equipment is available for loan to any Adams County landowner. At this time we have a 110-gallon skid tank spray unit, with boom spray nozzles, hose reel and hand gun, 3 spray units for use with an ATV and 7 backpack sprayers.

The Advisory Board welcomes and encourages participation from all landowners within the County. CWMA Meetings are held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 3:00 pm at 101 Boise Cascade Avenue in Council. Visitors are always welcome.
