For effective control of the giant hogweed (an invasive exotic), the giant hogweed auger is used in addition to the existing control methods: hoeing, mowing, and grazing. The giant hogweed auger removes the roots of the giant hogweed ergonomically and effectively, preventing the plant from germinating again. For effective control, it is advisable to remove the roots from the non-flowering specimens both in the spring before flowering and in the autumn.
Use protective clothing when removing the giant hogweed. This includes wearing gloves, long trousers, and long sleeves. Many people are sensitive to the toxic substance of the giant hogweed.
