Goatweed Beetles at Work
Shipments of goal
weed beetles arriving
from California by
scheduled airliner
were transferred at
Missoula into light
planes for final flight
to goatweed infested
areas in Sanders, Lake,
Mineral and Flathead
counties. Dawn patrol
pilots operating the
shuttle service were
Jack Gorkins, assist
ant state entomologist,
seen in his plane re
ceiving box of beetles
from Dr. R. S. Hunt,
entomologist from the
horticulture branch
experiment station.
Corvallis. R. L. War
den, extension weed
specialist also assisted
the entomologists with
"operation beetle."

Spread of goatweed infestations in the west is illustrated in map below prepared
by forest service with SCS co-operation. Gqatweed was found only along coastal
region of California in 1900 but by 1930 had spread into the darker shaded area
of map and by 1950 had covered the entire shaded region to the extent of an
estimated 150.000 acres in Montana. It is feared the weed would spread like
wildfire over the. open range country east of the mountains because it grows
best on unshaded areas. Importation of the goatweed beetles, now considered
the only practical means of large scale control of the weed, was financed by
state legislature appropriation. Liberation program was conducted'co-operatively
by staffs of the state entomologist, extension service, experiment station, forest
service. SCS, and western Montana weed control committee.

Kim Roberts. Sanders county agent,
left in picture above, and O. J. Mur
ray. chairman of the western Montana
weed control committee, shake out
beetles in a thickly infested goatweed
area at Ray Meadow's ranch. The west
ern Montana liberation of 52 colonies
of about 5.000 of the blue-green beetles
each was believed to be the largest
planting of weed control insects ever
attempted. By the time the beetles ar
rived in Missoula the goatweed packed
with them in the ice cream cartons
had been stripped clean of leaves and
entomologists were quick to give them
another feeding as seen in picture to
left. The beetles eat goatweed only.
The goatweed spreads rapidly, crowds
out other vegetation and is poisonous
to livestock.
