Derry considers new weapons in war on noxious weeds
As the Conservation Commission has made efforts to remove these invasive species from town conservation properties, most noticeably the Shepard property, it has also turned its sights to ways to contain them town-wide.
"My first thought is that it would be wise to have someone who is a town employee be licensed," said Arruda. "It does not appear to be a major stumbling block to get a license. It's when do we get it and who gets it."
"People shouldn't cut it with a rotary lawnmower," he said. "All they are doing is spreading it."
Commission member Paul Dionne said he is also checking into an organic product from Canada that can be used to eradicate the knotweed without the need for a pesticide application license.
Commission Chairman Margaret Ives said they should find out how much the organic product costs as well as talk to Fowler about public works commitment to controlling the invasive species.
