Q: How long will it take to get rid of my knotweed?

Q: Why do you give a warranty?
A: Because it takes repeated treatments to eradicate knotweed and we know that you don’t want to pay for one treatment and still have some knotweed left that will spread and re-colonise your ground. Our warranty is our commitment to you that we will continue to treat your property until there is no viable knotweed left.
