Watch out for these Pests!

Weeds to watch out for

Pest Plants are moved around the region in many ways including by wind, water, native animals, feral animals, livestock, vehicles and machines. The recent major flooding has significantly increased the movement of declared pest plants in the rivers, creeks and floodplains. A large weed seed bank has been moved and now the pest plants are starting to grow.

Water is able to move weed seed many kilometres and because of this you may not have ever seen some the pest plants that may now be growing on your riverbank, floodplain or even in you local park. Some of the key pest plants are Parthenium Weed, Giant Rats Tail grass, Hymenachne and Rubber Vine. Follow the link below for a brochure with photos for identification. If you would like to know more or if you suspect you have one of these pest plants please contact the Land Protection Officers at North Burnett Regional Council on 1300 696 272.
