Keeping alien plants out of our reserve to protect the indigenous biodiversity is a regular task, especially after the rain. Here the common guava (Psidium guajava )is being removed by cutting it and then applying herbicide to the stump. It has a delicious fruit but the wildlife feast on it and spread the seeds extensively, so it has to be managed. Other than this we never use poisons in our Reserve and we prefer to remove invasive alien vegetation manually.
