Show your hoosier roots - stay native, not invasive
SICIM has compiled this toolkit to provide landowners with the resources you need to identify invasive species threats, determine what options are effective to control them, and find assistance for control efforts. Browse toolkit items below, or download the files from Google Drive. If you have problems downloading files, or are interested in hard copies, contact SICIM at firstname.lastname@example.org or 812-653-5563.
SICIM does not endorse particular treatment protocols or herbicides. Herbicides, and other chemicals and mechanical control equipment, are inherently dangerous. They should be used by trained experts and/or with much caution. If you choose to use herbicides or mechanical equipment, always read and follow the herbicide label and herbicide/equipment safety precautions. Seek professional assistance or training whenever possible.

You can help invasive managers in your area and across the state by reporting invasive plants when you find them! Indiana has partnered with EddMaps to allow Hoosiers to report invasives online or via their smartphone. You can also browse their website or app to view distribution maps, photos, and other information on area invasives. Click the link below for more information:
