We are pleased to announce that we will be controlling Japanese knotweed in the Calgary and Red Deer areas using stem injection technology.  If you have this serious weedy pest, DO NOT attempt to dig the plant as this will result in many, many more plants. Knotweed must be destroyed with herbicide, preferably injections into the main stems.

Japanese knotweed (Fallopia japonica) is a weedy herbaceous perennial that is native to Eastern Asia.  It’s mature stems look somewhat like bamboo.  It is an invasive species in many countries and is considered one of the world’s worst invasive species.  Roots can damage concrete, paving, retaining walls and potentially foundations.

The best time to control knotweed is near the flowering stage in late summer or early autumn.

Please call our office to discuss injection rates and our other pest control services, (403) 755-5899 or in Calgary at (403) 770-2974.
