AGS Japanese Knotweed specialists are NPTC PA6A and PA6AW qualified for the systemic herbicide treatment and removal of Japanese Knotweed, inline with Enviroment Agency guidelines

Japanese Knotweed is fast growing, spreads like wildfire and causes serious damage to both property and local ecosystems as the root system of the weed undermines the foundations of buildings, bursts through paths and concrete and kills off the local flora as it grows and spreads. The Environment Agency considers Japanese Knotweed to be an invasive species and it was made illegal to spread the plant in the UK by the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. It is also classed as "controlled waste" in Britain under part 2 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990.

It is now also illegal to develop a site that has a Knotweed problem until it has been properly dealt with and banks will also not approve mortgages on properties that have a Knotweed problem. You can identify Japanese Knotweed by the picture on this page.

AGS use the stem injection method of Japanese Knotweed control. This is widely considered to be the most effective and environmentally friendly method of Japanese Knotweed eradication available

Stem injection works by injecting the herbicide directly into each cane of the weed and any nodes above ground level using specialist Knotweed treatment equipment. The herbicide then moves through the plants root system and eradicates the problem during the treatment programme. Because the herbicide is injected directly into the Knotweed itself, the treatment can be used in waterside and environmentally sensitive areas.

AGS offer Japanese Knotweed eradication services to business, public sector and domestic householders across London, Croydon and the south east of England
