While giant hogweed hasn’t made its way to Georgia yet we have plenty of other invasive plants in our own back yards.

For information about these and other invasive species, go to bugwood.org where you’ll find a wealth of information and links to more. For control information this link is very helpful: https://wiki.bugwood.org/Archive:IPSF
