Kleinfelder has been engaged by Lake Macquarie Council to undertake the control of Senegal Tea Plant (Gymnocoronis spilanthoides) along Slatey Creek. Senegal Tea Plant is a Class 1 Noxious Weed throughout New South Wales (NSW) under the NSW Noxious Weeds Act 1993. The work was carried out under Lake Macquarie’s EPA license 6337 and using the off-label permit PER11567 issued by the Australian Pesticide and Veterinary Medicines Authority.
Our team of experts utilized their knowledge of the local area, as well as highly targeted spraying techniques, to successfully treat the specific species and avoid damaging non-weed species. As a result, there has been a significant reduction in the distribution of Senegal Tea and a reduction in the density of infestations, helping our client achieve compliance in a timely, cost-effective manner.
