I am really worried about all these things being introduced into this country after all so many of the plants that have been introduced have become out of conttrol and imported their own bugs that are decimating our native species, you only have to look at the grey sqirrel that is causing the demise of our own red squirrel, the Japanese knot weed, Lily beetles,rabbits,American cray fish, the harliquine Ladybird wich is killing our own native species and so much more.
