What Does a Japanese Knotweed Detection Dog Survey Entail?
A canine team, including a handler, will visit the area, and in a matter of minutes will cover all kinds of terrain to determine whether knotweed is there, even if it’s dormant and below ground.
Dogs will respond at the presence of knotweed in a pre-determined way, often by freezing, at which point a localised dig can be carried out.
How Can Detection Dog Surveys Help Developers and Construction Firms?
When beginning a new development, dogs can be brought in to survey the site and surrounding areas to ensure that land is completely clear of traces of knotweed before building commences.As removing Japanese Knotweed can be a large and arduous process, detecting it before major construction begins can not only stop it from being disturbed and growing through buildings, but can ensure excavation is complete and the knotweed is removed before houses get built.
