Keep on top of moth plant

10 March 2016

KVH and the Bay of Plenty Regional Council have recently received complaints about moth plant (Araujia hortorum), a fast-growing, invasive climbing weed (pictured right). It is not too late to control moth plant. Removing vines and seed pods from shelter belts now will prevent further infestations next year. Moth plant harbours passion vine hopper, slows down orchard shelter trimmers and is a poisonous plant. Find out more about moth plant here.
