Japanese knotweed herbicide treatment
Herbicide treatment is a popular control method because it has the advantage of being relatively low cost, and is effective if done correctly.
Herbicide treatment is a popular control method, carried out during the growing season. Treatment control programmes typically consist of 4 treatments, spread over 2 growing seasons and annual monitoring visits in years 3 and 4. It has the benefit of being low cost, however do bear in mind it is not suitable if the ground is going to be disturbed.
An insurance backed guarantee underwritten at Lloyd's can be issued after the first visit, such that in the event of regrowth, further treatment is carried out by us at no extra cost.
