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.
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.
