Now offering Japanese Knotweed Treatment!
Japanese Knotweed are invasive perennials that are one of four species of knotweed found in British Columbia. Knotweeds threaten native plant species by their very rapid and invasive growth characteristics with root structures spreading rapidly, extending up to 20m laterally and 3 meters in depth. They are commonly found in the lower mainland along river banks and other sensitive riparian areas, requiring careful eradication techniques.
Integrated Pest Management control and treatment measures:
Prevention: Reduce the likelihood of spreading through Identification, Education and Treatment.
Mechanical Control: Frequent cutting and removal of new growth material where chemical or excavation techniques are not suitable.
Chemical Treatment: Using both direct and cut stem injection techniques, infestations can be controlled and completely eradicated typically within 2-3 years.
Disposal: All removed plant material are properly contained and disposed in an authorized disposal facility using high temperature composting facilities.
