Bull Thistle Infestation on Federal Property #709594

Asked August 04, 2020, 8:26 PM EDT

Good Evening! My name is Malachi Lakey and I am a Navy sailor currently stationed at Fort George G. Meade, outside of Odenton, MD. At my last job I was surveying the Bridgeport Ranger District in California for noxious weeds, including bull thistle and Canada thistle. I immediately recognized bull thistle when I saw it on base here in Maryland. Obviously, a noxious weed on heavily-trafficked federal property won't stay on federal property, especially if there's no awareness of the problem, but I have no idea who I should report the infestations to. ...Any ideas? Thank you! Malachi

Expert Response

You can start by reporting the issue to your supervisor and/or grounds maintenance department on the base.  They should be able to identify and take care of the weeds.
