Kingcombe Aquacare offers the most comprehensive range of aquatic weed control options in the UK. This ranges from the safe use of approved aquatic herbicides, to mechanical weed harvesting using our AquaTractor weed harvester, to manual clearance and biological control methods.
Our experience and proven track record in this field is recognised by the fact that in 2010 we were appointed Framework Contractors by the Environment Agency to train all their own consenting staff throughout the country to BASIS standard in the safe use of aquatic herbicides and other practical weed control measures.
We have developed a particular reputation for dealing with non-native invasive plants, such as:
- Floating Pennywort
- Australian Swamp Crowfoot
- Japanese Knotweed
- Himalayan Balsam
- Giant Hogweed
- Parrots Feather
- Canadian Pondweed
Our client list includes Natural England, the Environment Agency, county Wildlife Trusts, many local authorities, commercial developers and private estates.
Building on a relationship of trust established over many years, we always take responsibility to negotiate with the Environment Agency to ensure that all necessary consents are in place before any herbicide application is carried out.
All of our staff are trained and certificated to the required standard, and the company carries £10,000,000 public liability insurance for all of our activities.
