How To Kill Japanese Knotweed?
Japanese knotweed is one of the most troublesome weeds in the world. The invasive plant has been known to impact entire gardens and cause thousands of pounds’ worth of damage to buildings, if it’s not eradicated early enough. Fully exterminating the weed has proved difficult due to the extensive rhizome network associated with the plant.
Japanese knotweed grows in most environments and can grow some 4cm per day, resulting in a dense infestation in only a couple of weeks. More so, it only takes a small fragment of rhizome for it to grow. It can be transported through soil importation, during construction or even by footwear. Fortunately, with consistent and persistent efforts Japanese knotweed can be eliminated.
