Montana moving forward on seeking houndstongue control
October 25, 2019
A state advisory council is making recommendations to the federal government that could help with a growing problem in the area - the invasive weed houndstongue.
The Montana Invasive Species Council has issued recommendations on actions to try to obtain approval to use a natural control on houndstongue, which is a non-native plant that is expanding in the area and has a major presence in Beaver Creek Park.
The council has proposals requesting the federal government allow introducing the weevil Mogulones crucifer to control the weed, which has become an increasing problem in the area.
