Domestic Invasive Plant Species Services
Japanese Knotweed Killers can help with just about any alien (non-native) invasive species identification. We provide free advice on removal, control and management options available.
Most domestic infestations can be eradicated by herbicide application. This is a cost effective option but can take several years to complete.
Alternatively, we can provide non-chemical solutions.
We provide specialist invasive plant species removal for home owners including eradication and management programmes for Japanese knotweed, Giant knotweed, and Himalayan knotweed throughout Ireland.
If you are buying or selling a property affected by an invasive species, give us a call and one of our expert consultants will be happy to assist.
