JAPANESE KNOTWEED REMOVAL
Leaf application of herbicides is also commonly known as foliage spraying. This method of treatment is an ideal solution for treating both small and large areas of the garden that is infected with Japanese knotweed. This method can be done quickly by applying the herbicide to the leaves where it will be absorbed. The herbicide will be absorbed into the rhizomes where it will then destroy the knotweed. This method of Japanese knotweed removal is cost-effective, however, you may still need to consider having the knotweed excavated if you wish to landscape or develop the land further.
Generally speaking, destroying the Japanese knotweed with herbicide is a quick and cost-effective way of eradicating the invasive plant from your garden. However, for it to be completely effective the herbicide needs to be taken down to the rhizomes to work properly. The herbicide is usually rainfast within 10 minutes. The only downside is that treating Japanese knotweed with herbicide can take between 2-5 years to kill the infestation completely. If the plant that you are trying to destroy is well established, this can take even longer.
