Noxious weeds and nuisance weeds are unsightly, degrade pasture land, reduce crop yields, destroy native habitat and are, well, noxious — they can hurt your feet. For example, think cheat grass in your socks or your dog’s fur, or puncture vine wounds in feet and bicycle tires.

You most likely have them in your yard—if nothing else, under the mailbox on driving mail routes or in the alleys—the mail truck and garbage trucks pick up the seeds in their tires and disperse the weed seeds.
