Reduce the disruption caused by invasive species
Our end-to-end service covers all stages - from initial survey and identification, to guidance on bio-security and the law and finally removal and future prevention.
Invasive plant and animal species can be hugely destructive to environments in which they do not belong. Non-native flora and fauna may also pose profound threats to buildings, plant and equipment as well as human health if not tackled promptly. Dangerous species include, giant hogweed, a threat to human health; fast growing Japanese knotweed, whose roots damage structures, delay development and cause mortgage refusals; and Himalayan Balsam, which affects native birds, invertebrates and river ecosystems.
Non-native invasive species are estimated to cost the UK economy around £1.7 billion every year and dealing with the problem at an early stage can avoid escalating business costs?
