ALIEN PLANTS SPECIES THAT INVADED ABOUT 50 COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD.
There are many alien species in our county that and some people were not aware that they are planting invasive alien plants that can poison natural species. Lantana camara is a shrub found in the bush and is native at central and south part of The fruits of Lantana camara are greenish-blue to black in colour and they are fresh. Lantana camara has vigour (poison) that kills Herbivores animals (rabbits, cattle, and sheep) feed on its leaves. The vigour can also cause sores at the eyes, mouth, and noise of herbivores animals that feed on its leaves (3).

The research about the invasive alien species is done and the result indicated that
Lantana camara is regarded as a major problem and it is not easy to be controlled. Agricultural and natural lands are the most areas that are invaded by Lantana camara. Lantana camara is also a poison to the crops (coffee and bananas). Human, birds and animals have been contributed on speding the weeds accidentaly in KwaZulu Natal. Some people planted Lantana camara at their fence rows not knowing that they are planting a invasive plants. Lantana can cause the death to the native species and people must stay away from them.
Many solutions can be done to control or reduce spreading of alien invasive species in our home and county as a whole. The programme of working for water must organise an environmental awareness campaign to communities. It will help the people who do not know about alien invasive species. Let the community know the danger of the alien invasive species. Landowners must check their land every time. People must carefully clean their cloths after visiting the bush. Medias ( radios, television, and newspapers) can be used to teach people about alien invader plants. Hands can be use to pull the invasive alien species. One can cut down the stem of alien species and apply or spray herbicides on the stem to kill invasive alien species.
