Herbicide applications are essential in the control of invasive species. Alternative methods can be effective but are often costly and time consuming. Our staff are trained and licensed in the proper application of herbicides. We use the most advanced technology and chemicals to ensure that any herbicide applications are done safely and with minimal disturbance to non-target species.
Herbicide Application Methods
GPS Guided Herbicide Application
For large areas of broadcast spraying, we use a heavy duty Kubota ATV with a boomless sprayer. This machine is guided by a GPS unit that ensures we minimize overlap or missed areas.
For more selective applications, we use a Solo backpack sprayer.
Glove of Death
This technique involves to use of a cotton glove over a waterproof glove. The cotton glove is saturated with herbicide and the applicator grabs the plant and swipes the herbicide onto the plants leaves and stems. This technique works for certain woody plants as well as herbaceous species.
