Landowner workshop deals with weeds, pests

HABITAT -- Pend Oreille County property owners can learn to manage pests and noxious weeds and sign up for neighborhood cost-share assistance in a free March 26 workshop offered by WSU Pend Oreille County Extension and the Weed Board.

The event runs 8 a.m.-noon at Camas Center for Community Wellness, 1821 N. LeClerc Rd. in Usk.

Pre-register: (509) 447-2402 or email jrice@cahnrs.wsu.edu.

Read on for details.

The workshop agenda includes information on specific pest control for rodents (pocket gophers, voles and ground squirrels): expert advice on calibrating spraying equipment; herbicides for site-specific weed control and weedy grass control; and how the cost-share program works. 

Class participants will receive their 2011 Neighborhood Cost Share application early. 

Three recertification credits are available for both Washington and Idaho pesticide applicator license holders.
