Here are some tips on dealing with globe chamomile, otherwise known as stinknet, an invasive species that can cause harm to our beautiful native plants and animals. Here are some ways to stop it from spreading and protect our local ecosystems.

Step 1: Identify the sneaky stinknet! These pesky herbs can grow up to 3 feet long. Look out for their petite yellow flowers and leaves arranged in pairs. Once you spot them, it's time to take action! Stinknet

Step 2: Get your gloves on and pull the stinknet out by their roots! By removing them completely, you're ensuring they won't come back for a surprise visit. Remember, safety first! 

Step 3: If you can't pull up the stinknet entirely, don't worry! You can still cut them down. But be cautious! Make sure to dispose of the cuttings properly because they can still spread their mischief if left unchecked. 

Step 4: Herbicides to the rescue! However, let's keep in mind that using herbicides should be our last resort. They can harm our precious native plants, so it's crucial to handle them with care. If all other methods fail, consult an expert or a local gardening center for guidance on how to use herbicides effectively and responsibly. 

Remember, together we can protect our natural habitats and keep our environment thriving! Let's spread the word about stinknet and help preserve the beauty around us. Share these tips with your friends and let's take a stand against invasive species!
