Montana War on WeedsWe hope that this web site will educate you about Montana State Noxious Weeds in a user friendly, how-to, information, link and picture packed series of pages. The students of Whitehall High School (who have researched and written over 90% of this site) are dedicated to Integrated Pest (Weed) Management (IPM), which means this site will inform you of any and all reasonable methods possible to help you fight your 'War On Weeds.'
The students of WHS and the students involved in the summer Whitehall Project received the Montana Youth Weed Fighting Group Of The Year award for 2002 from the Montana Weed Control Association (MWCA) at their annual convention in January of '03.
Visit our Site Sponsors page for information on weed fighting companies and those who help sponsor the site. The site hosting is funded by these generous sponsors.

Biological Weed Control Using Insects - A Field Guide For Montana
This is a large .pdf file of this newly published guide. This guide is available at most County Weed District offices after January, 2012.
Cyphocleonus achates, the knapweed root boring weevil. The Whitehall Project along with help from the Victor Insectary Project and others (12 people total) collected 20,700 in 4 hours at a "super site" near Victor, MT, August, 2007. At some Montana sites these weevils along with seed head feeding insects are having dramatic results in lowering the density of knapweed.
