Very careful use of suitable herbicides at the lowest possible dose rates has been undertaken to ensure the minimum of collateral damage to the natural environment.

Very careful consideration has been taken to do the very least disturbance to the vast numbers of Barn swallows (Hirindo rustica) that roost in the reed beds during their summer migration to South Africa as well as the natural habitat that is the home to a large population of bush buck, bush pig, blue duiker, water, banded, slender and grey mongoose, spotted gennet, many frog species including the endangered Pickersgill Reed Frog (Hyperolius pickersgilli) and a vast number of birds including Black Rumped Button Quail (Turnix nanus) and other creatures.

While working in this area a number of plants  that are either rare or are seldom encountered in this area have been found such as  Begonia homonyma

Tremendous care must be exercised in particular in the summer months not to disturb birds nests.
