Once again, we bring you another Japanese knotweed news story. This time it regards a new client from Burton-upon-Trent, enquiring about – you got it, our Japanese knotweed removal Burton-upon-Trent services.
There are numerous methods to prevent Japanese knotweed from spreading and invading neighbouring homes and sites. There’s two kinds of spread. The natural growth kind and then there’s disturbance/accidental spread (often caused by people trying to deal with their own infestation without realising the implications or how easy Japanese knotweed spreads).
<h4>The most important thing for prevention of accidental spread, is to avoid disruption of the knotweed’s rhizomes or underground stem network (unless of course the entire infestation is going to be eradicated, treated and disposed of both legally and correctly). For the inexperienced, removal of Japanese knotweed is difficult and not at all a straightforward or easy process. For example, if you plan on digging it out – it may require digging to a depth of 3 metres beneath the surface. Having a go at it with a simple spade is an emphatic NO!</h4>
Unfortunately the customer had already attempted to remove and treat the Japanese knotweed infestation by himself (trying to save on cost) and inadvertently spread it around his garden (now increasing the cost of our Japanese knotweed removal Burton-upon-Trent service).
If you think have a Japanese knotweed infestation – get in contact with us right away, we can identify your infestation for free.
Remember, Japanese knotweed is not spread by seed, therefore, preventing access to the area should halt the knotweed’s ability to spread. It spreads by disrupting it and even a tiny piece of Japanese Knotweed will grow on soil – no matter how poor or infertile. We are Burtons premier Japanese knotweed removal Burton-upon-Trent company.
