*Fact sheet links are not always Utah specific; any control recommendations found in out-of-state publications should be checked for validity in Utah. In particular, some insecticide or herbicide recommendations from another state may not be legally used in Utah. Please contact the UPPDL with specific control questions regarding your pest.
