Weed Control – The Harmful Effect


Weed Control is one of the biggest threats on our natural environment. They are affecting and deteriorating habitats and animals. Weeds are also a threat on our natural systems including rivers and forests. Weeds can sometimes be seen as a harmless little plant in the garden, around crops and over the lawn in your yard. Weeds grow so invasive that in one single season they can take over your lawn area if not treated correctly. Weeds are particularly harmful to pets in your yard as well as farm animals. Weeds carry harmful bacteria and poisonous substances which can be harmful to animals.

Effective weed control – Prevent them from growing

  • Do not let weeds see day light
  • Ensure the ground around the weed is wet when pulling them out
  • Remove water source

Mow the edges of the lawn around your garden

Weeds add no nutritional value to the world as no weed has ever been used as a food substance or in medicine. Weeds rather take up all the nutritional value in its surroundings causing the plants and the lawn in your yard to deteriorate. Weeds can reduce farm productivity; they invade crops and in certain cases can harm livestock. They vigorously compete for water, nutrients and sunlight. Your crops on your farm also suffer in nutrition as the weed’s growing all around it tends to take most if not all the nutrition from it. Weeds grow so rapidly and germinate/reproduce seeds which if left untreated only grow stronger and stronger with each growth cycle. Weeds sometimes have thorny ends which make them hard/difficult to remove and who knows what germs you may encounter removing them from your yard.

How to get rid of weeds? Weed control is something Eco-Smart Pest Control takes very seriously. We encounter various weeds but the most common is noxious or injurious weeds. A noxious weed, harmful weed or injurious weed is a weed that has been associated with dangers to livestock, agriculture, pets and even humans. These noxious weeds can be brought about by mismanagement of land. They are plants that grow aggressively, multiply quickly without natural controls, and display different effects through contact or ingestion. Noxious weeds mainly affect areas of agriculture, nature reserves, parks and various open spaces.
