Japanese knotweed London to Manchester

Friday 22nd October 2010

In the last few days, I have been on sites from London up to through the Midlands and into North Wales. All untreated sites that I have seen still have green leaves and stems and so are very treatable, but this will not last much longer.

In 2008 and 2009, early hard frosts and even snow in October 2008 killed the surface knotweed growth; 2010 has so far been an easier season. However this autumn period is critical in the treatment of knotweed, as herbicide (glyphosate based) treatments applied now, are taken down (translocated) into the rhizome system, where the herbicide continues to work for the winter months, so being a very effective treatment. If you have knotweed on your land or are responsible for land where there is knotweed, than you should be commissioning an urgent treatment now.

The Knotweed Company is ready and able to treat your knotweed. If you email us or phone us, we will provide you with a written quotation within 24 hours and would be able to attend site to carry out the necessary treatment within 1-2 days of receiving your order.

If you delay in contacting us and frost or snow kills the surface growth prior to treatment, than you could lose a year in an eradication programme. So call us on 01327 340770 or email me on brian@knotweed-removal.co.uk don’t delay!
