    There are about 80,000 trees which, once mature, will be more than suitable to piss behind.
  2. Interesting John. I have a similar issue atm (removal of items from the estate of a deceased family member). I chose to visit HO in person to report - I was told by the officer I spoke to that it would be a civil case as the police don't want anything to do with family issues. Disappointed to say the least.

  4. For clarity, my question wasn't pertaining to divorce, children etc. I wish to know if I can bring a domestic abuse case against a family member (not marital). It seems apparent that this is not possible atm, but there may be alternatives. In respect of the generalisations posts, I can't speak for the general population, only myself, but can say that the generalisations made, and my own position are poles apart... shockingly so.
  5. Is domestic abuse an offense on the island yet, or is the paperwork still sitting on the shelf?
  6. As I understand it, he bought the farm immediately opposite Ballakew a few years back. Whether that extends to, and includes Ballavarvave, I do not know.
  7. Tricky's Invasives You won't find any Knotweed in Panama... or Horsetail for that matter😘
  8. Incorrect. When you say the "weedkiller won't go down far enough", can you explain what the 'strength' of the herbicide has got to down with the translocation? Also worth noting that the 'strength' of concentration can be overdone - it is not about 'more' with Knotweed control, it is about the right product, the right rate, the right frequency, the right method of application and the right timing.
  9. Easy to control, if one knows what they are doing. Proprietary blends of Glyphosate & 2,4-D (product names Kurtail, Diamond etc) are highly efficacious in this application.
  10. Yes. My company undertakes contract control of invasive species, with 100% record of success.
  11. This is because 50 or 60 years ago, the chemistry, and information regarding optimising control of Knotweed was not available. Again, control is easily achieved, if undertaken correctly.
  12. Sorry, incorrect - seed is not a consideration. Deposition of fragmented material is the main vector for spread.
  13. Quite possibly the most rational post I have seen on MF.
  14. Nonsense. Easy to control, if one knows what they are doing. It does not grow through concrete - another urban myth... it grows through cracks in concrete, as a significant amount of plants are able do. The biggest issue with Japanese Knotweed is the scaremongering that is a byproduct of misinformation.
  15. Well, I have to say, I have no idea who this pair are, nor do I have any idea who the person is on the receiving end, nor do I care. Problem with society nowadays is too many people, want to know too much, too soon.
