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 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.

Did You Know: Weeds take up all the nutrients from the soil in and around your garden and farming area?

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. 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. Weeds carry harmful bacteria and poisonous substances which can be harmful to animals.

A plant is often termed a weed when it has one of the following characteristics:

  • Little or no recognized value
  • Rapid growth
  • Competes with crops for space, light, water and nutrients
