We purchased a three hectare parcel of land located in the heart of Ipswich in March 2014. The land contains a series of water bodies known as the ‘Coffin Holes’. Without hesitation, we signed up with the Waterways Conservation and Land for Wildlife programs with Ipswich City Council.
Inside this bag is Salvinia along with a colony of Salvinia Weevils, ready to be released into this water body.
A weed contractor was subsequently engaged and the infestation was treated with three separate spray treatments using the herbicide, Reglone, and wetting agent, Agral. The chemical is harmless to aquatic life and did not affect the water quality. This treatment was successful.
