In the capital, municipal services are actively involved in the fight against ragweed, a dangerous and contagious plant. At the same time, the local authorities are reaching out to landowners and tenants from the private sector, encouraging them to also join the eradication efforts.
Throughout July, the specialists of the Green Space Management Association have successfully worked on 6.14 hectares of controlled areas, using special chemical and mechanical means to eradicate ragweed.
The capital’s mayor’s office also asked residents to report any detected cases of ragweed infestation in the city to the Central City Dispatch Office at (022) 22-22-67 or (022) 22-26-04.
Ambrosia is a pest plant that spreads quickly and adapts to different climatic conditions. It is particularly resistant to drought and high temperatures, preferring sandy and low fertility soils, making it a strong competitor for agricultural crops. In addition, its pollen is a potent allergen that is harmful to public health. Therefore, ragweed eradication becomes a priority for all residents of the capital to ensure a healthy environment and prevent the spread of this dangerous plant.
