Road Safety Contract has extensive knowledge and training in treating and removing Invasive species. Such as – Japanese knotweed, Hybrid knotweed, Giant knotweed, Himalayan Knotweed, Giant hogweed and Himalayan balsam.
Invasive non-native plants can cause problems for native UK and Irish species and reduce biodiversity. These Invasive non-native species are now widely recognised as the second biggest threat to biodiversity worldwide according www.gov.uk . Japanese knotweed can block footpaths and damage concrete, tarmac, flood defenses and the stability of river banks. Giant hogweed can cause harm to human health.
These invasive species need to be treated to prevent spread and damage to human’s health, animal’s health and infrastructure. Road Safety Contracts are able to treat and kill these invasive species.
We do this by spraying the invasive species or injecting the stems of the invasive species.
Site visits and risk assessments are completed before any work is commenced by Road Safety Contracts. Chemical will be identified before use depending on each site. All environmentally sensitive areas will be identified at each location.
