Why is it a problem?

All parts of the plant are poisonous to humans, pets and livestock. It smothers the ground, preventing the regeneration of native flora, particularly in wetlands. Seeds are spread by birds, flowing water and animals. Rhizomes are spread by dumping of garden waste.

The last two weeks the weather here was very upset.

I think the extra full moon had or still has a big influence on the weather

Snow on the hills near where I live.
