Elise Desjarlais Posted June 18, 2019 Report Share Posted June 18, 2019 Hi all, Well this is new. I was called to conduct a site visit for initial treatment by a woman in the city of Marquette who has knotweed. She has last year's growth still standing, so we were going to look at it this year to determine the next steps for first-time treatment for her. Upon arriving at the site, there's definitely knotweed, but nothing new growing this year. I'm stumped. I've never seen knotweed take care of itself, but she's been living in the house for 35 years, with the knotweed there for only about 4-5 years until she had someone ID it for her last year - so this year would have been the first treatment. Other knotweed sites in the UP are already at 4 feet of growth, if not more dependent on the site location, and this doesn't even have sprouts. Any ideas? Other than aliens or divine intervention? Has anyone else encountered knotweed that limited its own growth somehow? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
