Your Checklist for Preventing a Garlic Mustard Outbreak

Garlic mustard

 If you catch an infestation early, it's easier to stop it.

Keep an eye out. Get familiar with the native plants that grow on your land and learn to recognize garlic mustard and other weeds. It's easier to stop an invasion when you catch it early.

Wash equipment. Before bringing any equipment onto your property, always be sure it has been power-washed to stop the spread of invasive species.

Use native plants. When choosing plants for landscaping and erosion control, go with native plants. It’s common for nurseries to sell plants that are known invaders.

Whether you’re trying to prevent an infestation or controlling damage from an existing infestation, you don’t have to go it alone. State, county or consulting foresters, the Forest Service or your local cooperative extension service can all help you protect your woods and preserve your forest legacy.
