  2. One more thorough fact sheet: http://your.kingcounty.gov/dnrp/library/water-and-land/weeds/BMPs/Knotweed-Control.pdf
  3. I have heard over and over that you should not treat invasive phragmites after the first frost. Does anyone know if this is true about phragmites and know the science behind it? I know that a lot of invasive species continue to grow after the first frost so I am just trying to find information about phragmites. Thanks, Kip
  4. Thx for passing this along!

  8. Finding / mapping / treating MISIN sites

    Hi Everyone! Thanks for taking the time to comment. We have started adding a little more information to MISIN when first reporting a site. If it is in the right-of-way we are adding ROW to our notes along with the direction for which side of the road. If it is on private property we are adding the address and the distance from the road. These will help us determine ownership in the future. These comments are being done for road surveys through our counties. On private property we would put the entire address in the notes. FYI
  9. Saginaw Bay CISMA - Strike Team 2016

    Here is the same map but it shows the species we have treated. All of these sites have also been entered into the MISIN Treatment Database. FYI
  10. Hi All, Like many of the other CISMAs we have a summer Strike Team that identifies, verifies and treat our priority species. This year has been our first real year of treatment and the team is doing a great job. We have backpack sprayers and a large truck sprayer that we use for treatment. Each week we post an updated treatment map on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/sbcisma). Here is our most recent.
  11. Erin, We have seen over and over and over and over this growing season the nasty impacts of mowing Japanese knotweed. Do you happen to know exactly what part of the plant is responsible for this re-growth (stem, leaves, other)? Thanks, K
  12. This is great! Thx! I wanted to share this article if you haven't seen it yet: How much is enough: Effect of Spray Volume on Controlling Invasive Knotweeds http://techlinenews.com/articles/2016/effect-of-spray-volume-on-controlling-invasive-knotweeds

  14. Variegated Phragmites

    Please see the attached pictures of a variegated version of non-native phragmites that we found along the shoreline of Saginaw Bay. It was mixed in with a stand of non-native phragmites. A couple of years ago there was just one plant and this year there were about 8. We just wanted to share the pictures and information. FYI - Kip
