How to prevent invasive species from spreading: 

🌿 Make sure vehicles and equipment are cleared of invasive plants and seeds.
🌿 Because dormant seeds are awakened by the light and air, minimising soil disruptions slows down the process of seeds sprouting.
🌿 Limit movement of infested soil/ gravel.
🌿 Treat new infestations quickly or report them.

By following preventative measures, you can ensure that invasive plant species do not become a threat on your property.
