PRIVATE LAND SPRAYING
Billings County offers private land spraying for landowners within the County. If you are interested in spraying services or to learn more about Billings County’s pricing please contact the Weed Control Board. Landowners must call yearly to be put on the spray list, due to the high demand for our spraying services. Landowners will receive services in the order in which their call was received. Please contact us with any questions about this process or to be added to our 2023 spray list.
The Billings County Weed Control Board (BCWCB) hosts several field days each year, for the collections of Leafy Spurge flea beetles. Click the link below for collection dates, time, locations, and directions to collections sites. At fields days the BCWCB assists in sweeping, sorting, measuring, and dispersing flea beetles. Beetles are distributed evenly amongst everyone that actively participates in the collections. Beetles are sorted and placed in containers in BCWCB coolers until the collection is complete.
Weed Control Plans
The Billings County Weed Board assists our local Zoning Board by inspecting new development areas within the County. Permits are processed through the Zoning Department and depending upon the type of application, certain requirements are necessary. The Weed Control Officer is to inspect zoned areas before the ground is disturbed. This is to assess if there are any State or County Noxious weeds present at a site before construction. The Weed Control Officer will note any Noxious Weeds present upon inspection. Methods of control are noted to help the applicant manage the plants currently located at the site and prevent them from spreading.
