The Noxious Weed Department uses herbicides along road rights-of-way to control weeds declared noxious by the State of Kansas. In addition, the department trims trees along Harvey County roads and bridges.

- Field Bindweed
- Russian Knapweed
- Hoary Cress
- Canada Thistle
- Leafy Spurge
- Bur Ragweed
- Musk Thistle
- Sericea Lespedeza
The County contracts with Townships and KDOT to spray their roads.
Herbicides, for noxious weeds only, can be purchased at the Noxious Weed office between 2 p.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
