TCWP’s Response to COVID-19

Teton County Weed and Pest District reminds that their mission strives for the protection of human health. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, TCWP’s mission stands more than ever before. 

Adjusted Hours at TCWP’s Office

TCWP will continually serve the community this season but from a safe distance. Our office will be closed to the public however we will be available for questions by phone messages (within 1-2 business days) and through our website’s Contact form.  Once our consultation begins on June 1st social distancing practices will be in place and virtual consultations will be made available.

Herbicide Curbside Pickup

We will not be loaning out backpacks for safety reasons this season however we will be selling them at a reasonable cost to our community. We have a Herbicide Request Form newly added to our site to make it easier to place orders in order to help meet your needs. All orders will be fulfilled by preorder curbside pickup and payment made over the phone or by dropbox at our office location.

Curbside pickup orders on: Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 – 5pm and Fridays from 9 am – 5 pm. Same day pick up is NOT available.

We are taking all the proper precautions with personal protective equipment (PPE) including face masks and gloves. Our staff preparing orders will be wearing PPE and all TCWP team members will be continuing their social distancing and vigilant hygiene practices.

Our Highest Priority: Public Health

Our highest priority is the safety of the Jackson community and still we strive to protect our ecosystem from the highest priority species. Mosquitoes as we know are resilient pests and we plan to focus our treatments primarily on the areas where West Nile Virus has presented in the past. 

There is nothing like the summer season in the Tetons and though the pandemic has dampened the spirit of the season merely stepping outside into wide open spaces does serve as the best “therapy” there is. Enjoy the seasonal changes and do what you can to help stop the spread of invasive species while on the trail or out on the water. At a time like this, we need to all stick together (from a safe distance of course).

We realize that this is a time of uncertainty but we are here to provide education and resources to best serve Teton County. At times such as these we re-prioritize and continue to guide our community in how we can all do our part in the protection and restoration of our beloved ecosystem.
