University Villages Plans Herbicide Application

March 30, 2015

MISSOULA – Work crews at University Villages, a University of Montana housing complex located on the South Campus, will apply herbicides to select areas this spring and summer. Residents and the public should watch for signs posted along the perimeter of treated areas.

Glyphosate – commonly known as Roundup – will be spot-sprayed near parking lots, curbs and sidewalks, as well as in some ornamental flowerbeds. Craighead, Sisson, Elliott, Toole and Lewis and Clark Villages are scheduled for treatment this spring. The herbicide Horsepower will be used for treatment of broadleaf weeds in some turf areas.

Workers will adhere to all procedural regulations and guidelines in applying the herbicide.
