Case Study – Eradication of Japanese Knotweed in Sheffield
Eradication of Japanese Knotweed in Sheffield is a growing problem due primarily to fly-tipping. It can also be transported vie the claws of animals such as foxes or badgers. You only need a piece of the rhizome the size of your thumb nail to produce a new plant.
We pride ourselves on our customer service and this client who owned a residential property phoned us on a Sunday afternoon. Our office phones all divert through to a member of the management team outside normal office hours which means we can look after you and answer your questions at a time convenient to yourself.
We organised to come out on the Tuesday morning at 7am as they had to leave for work at 8am. We found a relatively small outbreak just measuring 2m2. Once we had conducted the survey we produced the management plan which outlined a three year plan to ensure total eradication using translocating herbicides. The chemicals we use are 300x stronger than what is available to the public! Even if you can get them off the internet we would strongly advise against this as without the proper training they can be very dangerous.
We are two years into the program for eradication of Japanese Knotweed in Sheffield. As a result we are pleased to say we have seen no new growth in the last year. Inspections will continue for another 12 months upon which the site can be declared free of Japanese knotweed.
