Eurobodalla Council's invasive species team will soon begin inspecting rural and semi-rural properties between Narooma and Akolele for declared weeds.

Starting in Central Tilba in late February, the inspections will progress over seven months, wrapping up in the Wallaga/Dignams Creek area by the end of August 2021.

The checks are part of Council's weeds inspection schedule that covers the whole shire, both rural and urban areas.

Council's invasive species supervisor Paul Martin said the team would visit the southern part of the shire to look for weeds that posed a high threat to biodiversity and agriculture, such as lantana, blackberry, African lovegrass and St John's wort.
