Landowners are advised to report any outcrops of Japanese Knotweed to their local municipal district office.
Kerry County Council have erected signage in public areas where the invasive plant grows, with information regarding council treatment and times.
Japanese Knotweed needs to be specially treated to remove it.
The council confirmed it has received funding of €40,000 for the eradication of the plant in specific locations in the county, under the Local Biodiversity Action Fund, from the Department of Housing.
The information was provided at the recent full council meeting, in response to a motion from Fianna Fáil, Michael Cahill.
