Chemical treatment of invasive species is often the fastest option, however this may be expensive and is potentially detrimental to sensitive ecosystems. All invasive plants have their set of natural requirements (e.g., light, water, nutrients). In understanding these requirements, Wild Ginger Field Services will develop a dynamic, integrated approach to pest control using all available options, namely mechanical, chemical and biological.
Management of invasive species starts with a survey of the site. At this visit photographs of the infestation and GPS co-ordinates are taken. We generally develop 5-year control plans for best results. That is not to say it will take 5 years to control, but after 5 years you can be reasonably confident the plan has worked. An invasive species management plan will present the best option for each individual site, including cost estimates for alternative options.
