Limerick City and County Council wish to alert everybody to certain invasive species such as Japanese Knotweed, Giant Hogweed and Himalayan Balsam which can cause of range of problems for property, people and the environment. The Council has developed a smart phone app which is designed to let people quickly and easily report sightings of these plants. This will allow the extent of these plants to be mapped so that the council and community groups can plan for their control.
The app is called “Report Invasive Plants” it is available for both iPhone and Android through the App Store and Google Play Store. The icon for the app is a white square with a green leaf and when you open it, the first screen should say Limerick City and County Council.
Please down load and use and tell anybody in your community who is interested in invasives (eg Tidy Towns) about the app and encourage them to use it.
