Weed Control

Foamstream is the leading herbicide-free weed control solution on the market, suitable for treating annual weeds, perennial weeds and invasive species of weeds.

Foamstream effectively controls unwanted vegetation by using the heat in hot water, insulated by a biodegradable foam blanket. The foam stops the heat escaping to the atmosphere, keeping the heat on the plant for longer, ensuring a more effective kill. Sterilisation of surrounding seeds and spores also helps to reduce regrowth. Read more about this here.
