How Does Japanese Knotweed Harm Other Species?
Japanese knotweed, otherwise known as Fallopia japonica, is one of the most menacing weeds in Britain today. It’s no wonder that home and land owners have come to dread it – the invasive plant has the ability grow almost anywhere at an alarmingly fast rate and it’s extremely difficult to completely eradicate without the help of an expert.
In its native home, Japanese knotweed growth is kept under control by a variety of insects, thus minimising its devastating effects. However, here in the UK the resistance force offered by Mother Nature is simply not enough. Over time, Japanese knotweed can become extremely damaging to the eco-system of the surrounding area, not to mention nearby property, which is why you should seek intervention quickly if you suspect its growth.
