Beating the Bindii

Wednesday, 15 May, 2019

Council counts itself and the community very fortunate to get calls from eagle-eyed locals noting Bindii on roadsides, verges and other high traffic areas and is becoming far more common of late.

Bindii, also known as Caltrop (Tribulus terrestris) is a summer growing annual that produces a vicious fruit with sharp rigid spines that can be up to 6mm long. As many of us know from bitter experience, Bindii burrs can be extremely painful, not only to us, but to livestock, native animals and pets. And no one wants to be playing footy on a bindii infested oval.

Keep your eyes peeled weed warriors! Bindii is a Regionally Controlled Weed and we can’t afford it to infest our shire.
