Invasive Plant Removal
Genesis Environmental have the skills, knowledge and experience to deal with the three major invasive plant species.
It may look pretty, but it’s the thug of the plant world.
Spreading rapidly during the summer months, in winter it dies back to beneath ground level. In early summer, its bamboo-like stems shoot to over 7 feet tall.
Eradication requires a combination of steely determination, experience of the plant and knowledge of the latest legislation and a long term treatment plan.
It is illegal to have Japanese Knotweed in your garden or on your land and you will require a specialist contractor such as Genesis Environmental to deal with it effectively.
A common sight, Giant Hogweed is a close relative of cow parsley. But this plant from Southern Russia and Georgia reaches over 10 feet and is invasive to in any area in which it grows. Its sap can also cause severe skin burns.
Giant Hogweed is not subject to statutory obligations like Japanese Knotweed but, it is undesirable, invasive and out-competes native plants.
Anything that invades more than half a garden is classed as a weed and requires control.
Giant Hogweed is an invasive alien plant that we can deal with, using both chemical and non-chemical methods.
A relative of the ‘Busy Lizzie’, Himalayan Balsam reaches well over head height and smothers native vegetation. It is a major weed problem, especially on river banks and wasteland. It invades gardens too, spreading quickly and growing rapidly.
Introduced to the UK in 1839, it is now considered a problem that needs to be dealt with. Like Giant Hogweed, it is not subject to statutory obligation but if you have Himalayan Balsam, we have a range of chemical and non-chemical treatments to rid your garden and property of this invasive plant species.

Just a quick note to thank you for a quick, efficient and very friendly (and informative) service!
We have been using Genesis for the past 4 years. We have always found them to be professional, efficient and diligent. As well as our monthly visits/reviews they are also contactable in an extra ordinary situation, which we have found useful in the past, within hours of the call being made they have been at site dealing with the issue for us. A comprehensive log of all works carried out is left at site and maintained in line with work done. Overall I can’t recommend them highly enough.
Thanks again for dealing with the rat problem we were experiencing. Excellent, friendly service – efficient, and definitely did the job!
I’ll recommend you to friends without reservation; that was money well spent :)
I’d like to thank you for coming at such short notice, I was very pleased with how you tackled the problem, and also I didn’t feel like I was overcharged which I was really dreading as obviously people will do anything to get rid of the problem and I think lots of people could take advantage of that. It didn’t take very long at all and I’m over the moon to say so far (touch wood) it seems to have worked, the first night I think I got a couple of bites but I was expecting that, last night I don’t think I got any and I had one of the best night’s sleep of my life!! Thank you so much!
Just wanted to say a BIG thank you for your help your service was brilliant. You came at short notice, very polite and friendly the job didn’t take long at all and the money was perfect. I would definitely use your service again and I would definitely recommend to others.
Thank you again.
We have had the services of Genesis Pest Control as a precaution for some time. We recently had a problem with vermin because of building works in Rochdale.
We would like to let you know that we have been very pleased with the technician who turned up as soon as we phoned and in this instance, as we were very worried, did a very thorough job of checking our premises. We have just had a good rating from the environmental health and have recommended the technician to several of our neighbours.
