Bug on creepy creeper news

e-news #6

This coming Saturday marks another Pot Up Cat’s claw creeper session to be held at Nerang Riverkeepers Nursery at Country Paradise Parklands. We certainly need help with potting up this nasty weed with the expectation of receiving a new round of biocontrol beetles from Biosecurity QLD. We have been able to inoculate the Cat’s claw creeper inhouse to sustain the program and will be trialing another round in the coming month.

After what seemed to be forever waiting for the Leaf-sucking jewel beetles in 2014, thousands were released last week, from Pimpama in the north, throughout Nerang and Gilston, to Tallebudgera Valley in the south. We encourage anyone whether they have been waiting for beetles, need more beetles or that their neighbour needs beetles to contact us as more beetles are expected to be released next week and thereafter.

In recent months there has been two new videos produced to teach you some tricks on how to manage environmental weeds, in particular, Cat’s claw creeper. From animals to simple cut and paste or no paste techniques, there is more to biocontrol action against Cat’s claw creeper – and we are already seeing the results, which are complimenting the stress caused by the Leaf-sucking jewel beetle.

Spring has begun and as the weather starts to warm up before we know it we’ll be blessed with the arrival of beautiful flowers – flowers of all different colours, shapes smells and sizes. Though some of our bushland will be blanketed in yellow flowers from Cat’s claw creeper – an aggressive, non-native vine that creeps up trees and smothers them causing significant impacts on our wildlife and waterways.
