Weed Watch


Welcome to Weed Watch, your alert to new and emerging threats. New and emerging weeds are reported every year in South East Queensland. These weeds present a significant threat to our environment and if left untreated can cause substantial damage and be extremely costly to control. The below fact sheets provide information on ID, distribution, habitat and look-alikes. Weed Watch also offers best practice control methods to ensure you have the ammunition you need to win the war on weeds.
