Protecting Wildlife When Using Herbicides for Invasive Plant Management

Produced by the California Invasive Plant Council & Pesticide Research Institute

Controlling invasive plants is often a high priority when protecting wildlife habitat, and those working to protect wildlife from invasive plants want to be sure their approach is safe for wildlife. This manual of Best Management Practices focuses on how land managers can best protect wildlife when using herbicides to control invasive plants. While any invasive plant control method can potentially impact wildlife, chemical control methods are the focus of this report. The toxicology information presented shows data on herbicides most commonly used for invasive plant management in California natural areas.

The Best Management Practices are drawn from methods used by experienced land managers. Along with providing guidance for land managers, this document is designed to inform the interested public about how herbicides are used to control invasive plants in natural areas.
