INVASION!

As someone who enjoys going for walks in my neighbourhood and to places like Elizabeth Lake, I have noticed how widespread spotted knapweed has become. Despite the prolonged, dry, hot spell of weather we have experienced locally, spotted knapweed, which is an invasive weed with no natural enemies, has adapted well to extreme weather conditions. It is a prolific seed producer with individual plants producing up to 140,000 seeds per square metre according to the Invasive Species Council of BC, which is why outbreaks should be reported.
