North Burnett Landcare gets $19,500 grant
MONTO-based North Burnett Landcare Group has received a $19,500 Jupiters’ Casino grant.
This was used to purchase a four wheel drive buggy and a spray rig.
Group president Glenn Baker said it would help make spraying efficient and effective.
Landcare members in the area are also using biological control trials on Cat’s Claw Creeper.
Tingid Bugs are sap sucking insects that host on the invasive weed and 390 small colonies of the insect were released.
“We will never be rid of these invasive weeds but we can contain the spread of them.”
HANDS ON: Monto's landcare group keeps everyone busy.
