South African Weed Orchid. Disa bracteata

Hi
We are all aware this WEED is spreading rapidly. I recently visited the Grampians and was horrified to see a clump of these invaders in what I had assumed to be pristine bush.
On returning home I have contacted various agencies for more help.
VOLUNTEERS MANUALLY PULLING UP THE WEEED IS JUST NOT WORKING.
The organizations whose job it is to remove weeds need to be made aware how rapidly this weed is speading.
I have looked at the map of Victoria showing all the observations for the State. It seems to me that not everyone is entering a sighting as an observation, I am also at fault here.
If you are doing observations for this project and you see one of these weeds please record it.
Thanks Ro.
