The Larimer County Weed District has selective herbicides available for purchase. The Weed District is committed to offering herbicides that are proven to be the most effective with the least environmental impact. Buy herbicides for range, pasture and natural areas at the Weed District Office. This service is available to all Larimer County residents.

Staff from the Larimer County Weed District is available to give on-site presentations on noxious weed identification and management to HOAs, schools, agencies or any other interested groups or organizations.

The weed management of county-maintained rights-of-way is the responsibility of the Larimer County Weed District and mandated by the Colorado Noxious Weed Act. Property owners requesting "no spray" are responsible for noxious weed management within that zone. Failure to comply will result in Larimer County resuming spraying operations. The posting requirements listed below must be met if Larimer County is to honor a request to refrain from treating an area with herbicides.

  • Signs must be posted immediately adjacent to the rights-of-way but not on the rights-of-way.
  • Signs must be posted at each end of the property; spraying operations will end at the point where the first sign is posted and begin at the point where the second sign is posted.
  • Signs must be clearly visible to approaching traffic from the road; they must be at least 36 inches above the ground and not obstructed from view.
  • Signs and the lettering on them must be large enough to be easily read from 20 yards distance.
  • Requests need to be submitted annually.

To request County Road No Spray areas, submit your request using the link below. You will need to create an account in the online portal first before submitting your request.
