A little more than nineteen acres were given aerial chemical treatments. Two aerial plots each received a different herbicide or mix of herbicides as follows:
|Acreage treated||Type of Treatment|
|7.5||Arsenal and Rodeo mix|
We will treat 3.5 acres using hack and squirt with the following herbicides:
- Arsenal-Rodeo mix
Cut/stump treatments were applied on 8.3 acres. The area was divided into nine subplots, each of which received a different herbicide or mix of herbicides on the cut stumps.
Subplots 4 through 9 were treated by contractors with commercial herbicides. Subplot 3 was treated with commercially-available consumer products. Subplots 1 and 2 were not treated with herbicides.
Cut Stump Subplot Treatment Details
|Subplot (see site map)||Type of Treatment|
|1||Biological control of stump regrowth|
|2||Untreated control plot (except for insecticide)|
|3||Stump demonstration using consumer products|
Biological Control Treatments
We released melaleuca psyllids (Boreioglycapsis melaleucae) on 2.3 acres. Melaleuca weevils are already present here naturally as a result of earlier releases elsewhere.
