Thanks Ollie & Harry for adopting a mink raft. Doesn't look like you got too wet and muddy installing it!
If they can do it, so can you!
See website for details.

This is a critical time for our invasive mink control project. Jan - Apr is breeding time so males on move looking for a mate. V important we catch them before breeding. We use our network of mink monitoring rafts to locate mink and once detected in an area we put live capture traps on the rafts. 
You can help by reporting mink sightings or adopting a raft. We are working in Highland, Moray, Aberdeenshire, Angus and N.Perthshire.

Giant hogweed, invasive but stunning and majestic towering overhead, even the dead stems. I guess that is what attracted people to bring it into their gardens...only problem was it escaped and is now creating havoc in the countryside.

At our labs in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, CABI scientists are growing #Parthenium in order to study potential #biocontrol options. Parthenium hysterophorus is an annual herb that aggressively colonises disturbed sites. Native to southern United States, Mexico and Central and South America, it has been accidentally introduced into several countries and has become a serious agricultural and rangeland weed⠀

Help with our mink control project! Invasive American mink are now in breeding mode, with males travelling vast distances to search for mates. Next few months are a critical time for mink control before females breed. You can report sightings, monitor a mink raft or trap to help.

Due to its attractive flower, Parthenium can often be found in floral bouquets in countries such as Pakistan. However, the weed is harmful and can cause asthma, dermatitis and allergies. It has also caused significant damage on agricultural land; if eaten by grazing animals it can affect their health, milk and meat quality. If it invades crop land, it has been known to cause up 40% yield losses⠀

Japanese knotweed is one of the most high profile and damaging invasive weeds in Europe and North America and can literally grow through concrete. CABI have been working on a biocontrol, using the psyllid, Aphalara itadori, to help stop the spread of Japanese Knotweed⠀

This well-known invasive plant, Himalayan Balsam, thrives in damp, nutrient-rich soils that experience frequent disturbance, such as riparian zones (areas adjacent to waterways such as banks). These riparian zones are an important ecological habitat as they are the interface between terrestrial and aquatic environments. It is believed that Himalayan balsam reduces the ability of riparian zones to complete these ecological services in areas that are heavily colonised by it. Riparian zones are key ecosystems for semi-aquatic species such as dragonflies, damselflies and many other fauna⠀

The damage that invasive species can cause to the environment are well known, but impacts on human health have been much less analysed. An outbreak of the disease tularemia, which can cause fever, fatigue and death if untreated, was linked to fishing for the invasive red swamp crayfish, Procambarus clarkii.⠀

CABI scientists have been working on using a tiny mite which could prove to be crucial in the fight against one of the UK's most invasive weeds, crassula. On this close-up image you can see the mites on a crassula bud. Crassula is an aquatic plant that can form dense stands of cover, displacing native plant species, reducing biodiversity, and decreasing water quality and flow. ⠀

Native to China, buddleja/buddleia, is commonly known as the butterfly bush 🦋⠀
It is a common site in gardens all over the world. However, it is considered problematic due to its tolerance of a broad range of environmental conditions and capability of prolific seed production. ⠀

Invasive in Brazil, Rubbervine is known locally as 'viuva' meaning widow-maker. In its native Madagascar the poisonous latex was used by women for unfaithful husbands! But, how was this 'ancient usage' adopted so quickly in Brazil?
