Stem Injection & Leaf Application

Stem Injection provides a targeted treatment using concentrated doses of herbicide which are injected directly into the plant’s stems using specialised equipment. The herbicide is drawn down through the stem and penetrates deep into the rhizomes where it kills the plant. This method of control is particularly advantageous due to its lower environmental impact. When carried out professionally it poses minimal risk to nearby water and the surrounding environment making it a suitable alternative to herbicide spraying in environmentally sensitive areas. Stem injection is particularly useful for treatment in areas next to watercourses.

Direct injection into individual stems can be a laborious task particularly when covering larger areas however it has proven to achieve successful control in all forms and is still a cost-effective means of control. Our Japanese Knotweed technicians are skilled in delivering accurate doses to each plant ensuring a thorough treatment on each occasion. As with other herbicide treatment methods the process can take a number of years to completely clear an area of Japanese Knotweed and consistency of service is essential.

Trust JBB Knotweed Solutions to deliver a reliable and consistent service of the highest quiality for the duration of your management plan.

Leaf Wiping is carried out by using a small device to manually wipe each leaf with a coating of concentrated herbicide.  This method provides a direct hit to the desired area with less wastage and run-off into the surrounding environment.  It is a suitable option for small areas, immature plants or when the infestation is near desirable plants or conserved areas.  Like other herbicide treatments leaf wiping targets the rhizomes and normally clears an infestation within 2-5 years.  Weather conditions must be favourable for both herbicide spraying and leaf wiping to ensure a sufficient dry time for the herbicide is given.

JBB Knotweed Solutions provide a variety of herbicide treatment options with a proven track record for controlling knotweed from a variety of residential and commercial settings.  Contact us to discuss the best treatment for your requirements.
