Japanese knotweed control in Leicester

Japanese knotweed has been an issue for the UK, including Leicester, for a number of years now. This fast-growing plant can quickly gain a hold in properties around the city and, if left unchecked, has the potential to cause a lot of damage to building infrastructure.

You only have to look at the heat map below to see how Japanese knotweed has become a problem over the last few years. There are numerous approaches to deal with it if found but treatment usually combines digging and pulling up the plant and then using knotweed biological control to remove any roots that cannot be excavated.

Tried and tested Japanese knotweed control methods need to be employed if the problem is to be solved for your home or business. Herbicide knotweed control in lawns is regularly used and one key to success is intervening at the earliest opportunity.

In all areas, including Leicester, Japanese knotweed is a fast-growing and invasive plant that can damage infrastructure if it is not eradicated. The vast majority of people don’t realise they have a Japanese knotweed problem until it is beginning to get out of control.

At this time, the roots of the knotweed will have grown deep into the soil and removal is vastly more difficult. In most cases, extensive digging is not enough and chemical solutions are required to rid the ground of the remaining knotweed.
