How To Kill Japanese Knotweed?
Known as one of the most troublesome weeds in the world, but how do you kill Japanese knotweed before it really gets out of hand? The invasive plant has been known to impact entire gardens, properties, development sites, and cause thousands of pounds’ worth of damage to buildings and underground utilities, when it hasn’t been eradicated early enough. Fully exterminating the weed has proved difficult due to the extensive rhizome network of roots associated with the plant.
Japanese knotweed is capable of growing rapidly in most environments and on average can grow some 4cm per day (and as much as 10-12cm per day in summer), resulting in a dense infestation in only a couple of weeks. More so, it only takes a small fragment of root or rhizome for the plant to grow and establish itself, either on a new or existing site. Knotweed fragments can be transported through soil importation, during construction, or even carried by footwear. Fortunately, with consistent and persistent efforts Japanese knotweed can be eliminated. Read on to find out the main methods for Japanese knotweed removal.
