Pesticide Application

Weeds Act 1959

Under the Weeds Act 1959 the Secretary of State may serve an enforcement notice on the occupier of land on which injurious weeds are growing, requiring the occupier to take action to prevent the spread of injurious weeds. The Weeds Act specifies five injurious weeds: Common Ragwort, Spear Thistle, Creeping of Field Thistle, Broad Leaved Dock and Curled Dock.

All our pesticide application operatives are qualified to National Proficiency Test Council standards and include tractor mounted spraying, knapsack spraying and controlled droplet application. We can apply pesticides to small or large areas to control weeds and other vegetation. We can also control invasive weeds such as Japanese Knotweed and Ragwort and also hold a certificate of competence in spraying close to water with specialist chemicals. We are very environmentally conscious and will always find the best and safest way of applying, as well as using chemicals least harmful to the environment.
