Equipment Rental

Teton County has a fleet of eight backpack sprayers, and one ATV sprayer (not the ATV) available to rent. These are intended for private, not professional use. Users are responsible for taking good care of taxpayer property and adhering to all applicable laws regarding equipment use and herbicide application.

The fee is:

$10/rental including up to 3 gallons of herbicide for backpack sprayers.

$10/rental for 24 gallon ATV sprayer WITHOUT herbicide- $1/Gallon of mix up to 24 gallons.

The County Weeds Department is one person, so scheduling must be done in advance. Equipment must be returned clean and undamaged.

 The fee can be paid by cash, check, or credit card (there is a "service fee" for credit card transactions). Contact us with any questions. 

Here are links to the herbicide lables for the chemical that may be in your sprayer (varies based on site and target species):

Milestone/Telar tank mix

Opensight

  

BackpackBackpack 2

 

 


FAQs:

What if I run out of herbicide?

Refills are $10 and require a new appointment.

What if I spill herbicide on myself?

Remove affected clothing and wash them in a separate laundary load.  Wash yourself with soap and water.  The herbicide is not caustic or acutely toxic and is unlikely to cause any ill effect.  Refer to the label links in the first section for more info on your product.  

How long do my livestock or pets need to stay off treated areas?

There are no restrictions on animal use, so they do not need to be removed from treated areas at all.  However, if you are concerned, remove them until sprays have dried.  

How long before people can enter treated areas?

If Worker Protection Standards apply, follow the herbicide label.  For most users, the the best practice to stay away until sprays have dried, though there is not official label restriction.
