Recent temperatures and sporadic rain have resulted in an explosion of weeds. The predominant nuisance weeds are kochia (soft stem, dark green leaves, 4/8 feet tall) and tumbleweeds (light green spikey leaves).
What can I do?
Mechanically cut down all weeds on your property (including those in easements); bag the weeds and dispose of them at the City of Fallon's transfer station at 2900 Enterprise Way in Fallon.

What can I do to prevent the weeds from growing next year?
The most effective pre-emergent weed control is the application of herbicides at the appropriate time.
