Garlic mustard - help!

Asked April 16, 2013, 6:12 PM EDT

Hi, I love this service! What is the best way to get rid of lots of garlic mustard this time of the year besides pulling? It's in the woods, etc. on 2 acres.

Control of garlic mustard can seem overwhelming. In early spring before other plants emerge or in late fall when other plants have died back, a glyphosate herbicide can be used on seedlings and rosettes once identified. Be aware that glyphosate is a non selective herbicide and can affect non targeted plants. Other options include cutting and prescribed burning.
