Nasty weed we are trying to eradicate from the ACT

User's notes

Rather large moth vine infestation by Hindmarsh drive, plants are entrenched among acacia boormani, so anyone trying to remove these has their work cut out for them!! :)

Thanks Tapirlord an important discovery - have asked about control.

Well spotted. It is an eradication target in the ACT. Predicted to spread with climate change.

Remove the fruit first. Scrape the stems and paint with glyphosate.

Picked about 50 fruit and scraped and poisoned 8 plants. I might have missed some among all the acacia stems and other weeds but at least the infestation has been reduced significantly.

Thanks Mike much appreciated - I was about to go out the door to do the same job but got caught up in a Red Hill matter

went to site today and had a good hunt - found and treated six seedlings but there are probably more hidden in bushes and grass growth

I knew there must have been seedlings but I was in between Waterwatch sites and couldn't spend much time. It seems as though when mulch gets overgrown it no longer gets maintained.
