    Why are noxious weeds a problem?


    Answer:

    Noxious weeds are often pretty, but their effects are not. The absence of natural enemies in the new environment means weeds can spread uncontrollably, vastly reducing the number of native plants. This affects wildlife that depends on native plants for food; therefore, an increase in noxious weeds results in decreased native wildlife populations.
