Based on the premise that invasive species that are never introduced will never need to be controlled, the District will work to prevent the introduction of new harmful species into the county, or the spread of these species into areas of the county they do not currently inhabit. Prevention saves time and money in the long run and reduces the negative or non-target consequences of control activity. The primary preventive techniques are public education, certified weed free hay, effective seed laws, equipment washing, quarantine, and early detection of new infestations coupled with rapid response.
Additionally, in order to enhance human and animal health and well-being and support the sustainability of our local resources, the District will provide leadership, information and environmentally sound management of mosquitoes and other vectors and pests.
Programs are offered for the purpose of encouraging and implementing prevention, early detection and treatment of declared/designated noxious weeds and pests within Teton County, Wyoming.
