Invasive plants don’t have natural controls (like diseases or pests) to restrict their growth. They frequently produce chemicals which control the growth of other plants. This can result in a monoculture with limited biodiversity. Some invasive plants form thickets that prevent the passage of larger wildlife. While invasive plants can support some insects, they are not good options to support diverse insect communities To prevent reinfestation, make sure to have a replanting plan before removing invasive plants.
When controlling invasive, noxious, or aggressive plants, it is important to follow integrated pest management strategies. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a science-based decision-making process that combines tools and strategies to identify and manage pests.
