Gee, perhaps native Indians should rip us out and spray us with Round-up.

Too bad we can't get Home Depot, Wal-Mart and others to stop selling invasive non-native plants.

Maybe its to bad we continue to buy the chinese junk that our stores sell to us. America needs to wake up because everytime someones buys something made from overseas you have possibly allowed something exotic to be introduced onto our shores. To the people at DNR keep up the good work but get the politics out of it and start doing some real work in controlling exotics. From garlic mustard to japanese stilt grass which is the worst and has to be herbicided to kill it and sometimes it takes consecutive applications in consecutive years to get rid of it.
Good article.

Awww, the poor lawn isn't picture perfect?

Don't worry about the other invasive species. Eventually they'll cause the crop harvests to be a bit smaller each year, year after year, and the price of food will increase, year after year. Of course, you don't worry about a food crisis, do you. You just worry about that picture perfect lawn.
