CHAIRMAN’S UPDATE – WHEN DID THAT HAPPEN?

People often say to me… ‘Why has Japanese knotweed suddenly become such big news?’… ‘it’s been around since 1840, why is it only just beginning to register as an issue?’…

Well – there is actually a technical reason for this…. invasive non-native species go through a series of… ‘phases’… as they settle into a new environment.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS?

HOW MANY TREATMENTS?

We have yet again been amazed by a telephone call received this week in our office, when I thought we had heard it all, we could not believe our ears overhearing one of our Surveyors explaining some facts about Japanese Knotweed and that it couldn’t be treated in just one treatment and that lifetime guarantees are not worth the paper they are written on!

CHAIRMAN’S UPDATE JANUARY 2016

CHAIRMAN’S UPDATE JANUARY 2016

One of the main reasons for setting up the Invasive Non Native Specialists Association was the number of dubious companies making statements that they just couldn’t back up. ‘Smoke and Mirrors’ seem to be the order of the day with dodgy companies making the most of the fact that many people just didn’t understand how to eradicate Japanese Knotweed.
