It’s been a busy year for Invasive Weeds Agency (IWA). We’ve been tackling all of the usual invasive weeds (Japanese knotweed, giant hogweed, Himalayan balsam, rhododendron etc.) plus a few others that are less well known to gardeners and the public alike. Floating pennywort is a ‘new kid on the block’. As its name suggests, it is an aquatic weed. It is rapidly spreading throughout waterways in the south of England and it is causing severe damage to the sensitive water environment in Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) such as the Pevensey Levels. Control and eradication of floating pennywort can be achieved using excavation and removal followed by herbicide application to any remaining fragments. The process can be very time-consuming due to the delicate nature of the work in order to prevent the accidental spread of this weed.
Invasive Weeds Agency’s business manager, Graham Rudd, has delivered several presentations to the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) on the subjects of invasive species management and common mistakes people make when dealing with Japanese knotweed. The presentations were well received and the feedback from RICS has been positive.
IWA are continuing to assist private, domestic clients across the UK. Our treatment programmes for Japanese knotweed eradication are more popular than ever due to our great prices, first-class service and HomePro insurance backed guarantees.
