Leafy Spurge Beetle Collection Days 2024

The SARM Plant Health Technical Advisors (PHTAs) will be holding Leafy Spurge Beetle Collection Field Days at Besant Campground, west of Carport on Highway #1 from July 2-5th.

The collection days will run from 10 am to 3pm. All Saskatchewan landowners, Rural Municipality and First Nation Band representatives are invited to come and take part in the collections. Any beetles collected can be taken back to your property or RM/FNB for release, free of charge, to be used as a bio-control for the noxious weed; leafy spurge.

The 2024 Leafy Spurge Beetle Collection Days Poster is attached, which contains more information about the Leafy Spurge Collection Days and what to bring to the event if you plan to participate.
