Rangelands

USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service is soliciting contract bids for spraying more than 2.6 million acres of Montana grasslands to suppress native species of grasshoppers. Spraying puts at risk organic farms and a national wildlife refuge adjacent to the proposed spray areas, as well beneficial insects within the spray blocks.
Proposal by USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service to spray insecticide by aircraft across 30,000 acres of public lands in Oregon will impact protected Wilderness Study Areas and be near recreational and biodiversity hotspots such as Steens Mountain, the Alvord Desert and the Pueblo Mountains.
