Essex Rivers Hub

New Zealand Pigmy Weed has been most recently recorded on this water body in 2009. This plant forms dense mats in waterways, increasing the likelihood of flooding and also out-competing native species.

This plant can be mechanically removed, but this would only be a short term solution. Chemical eradication is possible and if done correctly can be very effective. After eradication it is important to monitor sites to ensure that it does not take hold again.
