What is the County spraying in the ditches?
Let's start with why. Beaver County applies herbicides to the roadside ditches to control and stop the spread of weeds along roadsides, as well as, to control tree regrowth to keep road allowances safe. For weed control, the County applies ClearView herbicide, a selective herbicide (doesn’t kill grass) for broadleaf weed control. To control trees, the County applies Garlon XRT herbicide, another selective herbicide.
