Krenite S is different from other brush control chemicals. Treated vegetation with Krenite S does not usually show any immediate affects; rather it does not produce foliage the following spring.

Krenite S will not be applied at locations where adjacent property owners object to the use of this material. Property owners along the above locations who object may post the right of way for no spraying. Please contact the Monterey Area Headquarters at 540-468-2400 with any questions or for additional information.

Traffic alerts and traveler information can be obtained by dialing 511. In areas where 511 is unavailable, dial 1-866-MY511VA (866-695-1182) (TTY/TDD users, call 711). Traffic alerts and traveler information also are available at 511Virginia.org.
