A plant that grows on a rooftop in London has become a new form of pest control that’s gaining traction in the United Kingdom.
The ‘super-bug’ grows in the form of a small leaf that is suspended in the air and can infect plants and animals.
It was originally developed by the University of Cambridge, but it’s now used by many universities and is being adopted by the likes of the University Of Southampton and the University College London.
In the UK, the UK Environmental Protection Agency (UKEP) is currently reviewing the use of the technology.
It’s not clear how many people in the U.K. are using it, but the technology is already being deployed in several U.S. cities.
The leaf, which is suspended above ground in the greenhouse of the UCL plant, was developed by researchers from the Ucl and University of Southampton.
It is designed to attract the super-bug’s attention to its location.
The leaf can be suspended above the ground in an outdoor greenhouse to attract it to a nearby building.
A UKEP spokesperson told The Huffington Post UK the leaf was designed to help plants and insects survive in colder climates.
The leaf is also designed to stay in place while the superbug is on the move, so it’s not likely to fall off when it moves from place to place.
“This is an effective means of controlling the disease for plants, insects and livestock,” the spokesperson said.
“It’s being used on buildings to reduce the likelihood of the super bug getting into a building and possibly infecting people.”
The UKEP said the leaf is a good way to spread the super bugs disease in the summer and fall.
“It’s very effective, as it can be planted directly on the roof, and the leaf can remain suspended for several days in the winter and can be used in conjunction with other measures such as sprinklers and aerators,” the spokeswoman said.
According to the UKEP, it’s difficult to isolate the virus from the plant.
However, a plant scientist at the University at Winchester in England has used a different method to control the superbugs in the past.
In 2015, Dr. Adam Grosz, who studies the superinfection of the leaf, told the BBC that he had been using a spray can in a greenhouse that is mounted on a pole to create a mist for the leaf.
He said that he used the mist in the spring when the super infection was first detected in the area, and it worked well.
Dr. Groslz said that spraying the leaf in the late summer can help keep the super virus at bay.
“[I]m sure there are a lot of people who think this is just a gimmick that doesn’t work because it doesn’t really work,” he said.
Dr. Nick Hodge, a research fellow at the Department of Plant Pathology at the Royal Veterinary College, said that the leaf’s usefulness in the environment was a good sign that the UK was taking up the technology quickly.
“It really is a bit of a breakthrough,” he told HuffPost UK.
“We are beginning to see the impact of the use on the UK super-infection problem.”
“I think it’s really a real demonstration of how much people are listening to the public,” he added.
