Japanese knotweed in the autumn

“Helloweed” - trick or treat time for Japanese knotweed

Trick or treat - don't be fooled, Japanese knotweed is still alive.

It's Halloween again that time of year in the knotweed calendar marking the conclusion of what many people think is the end of the knotweed treatment season. It’s true enough that the knotweed is preparing for its winter dormancy period, where the leaves go yellow and fall, leaving brittle hollow canes, tricking people into thinking the knotweed has at long last died. Of course it’s just disguised as dead, with healthy underground orange rhizomes the colour of pumpkins.

And, of course, what is a myth is that you can’t do anything about your knotweed until next spring. In fact, we’re busy excavating ground that is infested with knotweed all year round, even in the winter. On development sites we use our Xtract™ method, and in residential gardens our Resi-Dig-Out™ is the preferred route.

No trick-or-treatment, just hard work, physically removing knotweed so our clients can enjoy their properties with the knowledge that the knotweed has gone, and gone for good. No more scary moments – knotweed removal supported by insurance backed guarantees underwritten at Lloyd’s.  

And now you can also get knotweed indemnity insurance to cover you for property damage, third party legal claims and loss of property value as a result of knotweed.
