Last night I was walking from my house to the neighbors & spotted garlic mustard in the road ditch.
It's the 1st time I've ever seen it in my county. Tonight I used the Seek app to verify my sighting, then I pulled all of it that I saw on my ditch. Inevitably I missed some (& some I pulled I didn't get the root). I carefully put it in a garbage bag that I carried with me and put it out for the trash tonight. The key will be to keep it out of my woods, & not inadvertantly transport it to my hunting property. I doubt it went to seed yet. I thought I did ok but then I walked down the road & noticed it's bad on my neighbors across the road. Now I need a plan. Hopefully it's not too late. I might try Roundup. The neighbor has more than I can pull.

Garlic mustard produces chemicals that kill other plants and fungi, including morel mushrooms. Once it's thoroughly established in the area around you, it will be impossible to keep it off you're property. We have it bad here.

Yeah, I think there are a lot of bad things about garlic mustard.
Once the township comes through, the mower will probably spread it.
I don't know when it goes to seed but I think just about anything can spread those tiny seeds.

The big problem is that animals and people get the tiny seeds on them when the pods break open, when they are going through the garlic mustard and carry the seeds farther than the plant can pop seeds out on its own. One plant can produce 8500 seeds. It eventually covers the entire forest floor.

And it sounds like it thrives in most conditions, open or forested.

If the seeds are not viable you can mow or weed eat. round up will work unless the seeds are viable, then you will just kill the plant. It's a by anual, so spaying it the first year game over.

While pulling it tonight I noticed it is a fragrance I don't like.

Pulling a patch of it seems like it's hard, but carpet bombing the area with Roundup isn't so great either

Just looked it up. It is already firmly established in you state and beyond. Good luck getting rid of it. As stated above many invasive plants are spread rapidly by municipalities cutting grass in ditches

We have it here very thick. pulling it just slows it down, round up works but if the whole county is infested you have an uphill battle. Supposedly you can eat it....

You can fight that crap but it's here to stay and spreading. I can't say what year it was when I pulled the first of the garlic mustard in my yard. Been a on going thing ever since with no end in site. It's thick in the woods here too.

Yeah I am devastated. This could be a huge problem for my treasured woodland. Maybe I'll have to just sell out. I already spend more time on my property removing invasives than I do enjoying it..now add this devil to the mix frown

This seems terrible from a forestry, wildlife, & aesthetic perspective etc.

Spread the word that eating or smoking it will get you high, then just stand back and watch it disappear.

I'm trying to study up on this devilish weed; trying to figure out when it goes to seed, etc

I'm attending a large invasive consortium on 6/15 @ Ft McCoy, but I can't wait that long to deal w/ this
