we are just seeing palmer amaranth in our area. this is a dang wicked weed. cross between pigweed and water hemp. after 6 inches in height, it has to be mechanically removed from the field and burned. each plant produces 100k plus seeds. if it gets away, it will take over the whole field. sheesh. then i just read about giant hogweed, it came from the caspian sea area as an ornamental. sap is highly toxic, causes burns and blindness. in the upper east coast and some in michigan.

Why do or how do these weeds, bugs, and diseases keep showing up?

If it isn't one thing it is another.

Palmer amaranth is not here yet but it is in Iowa.

Palmer is from the southwest u.s, desert area. It got to tenessee in a shipment of something, then got in to a load of hay that went to a large dairy operation in Indiana north west of Indianapolis. From there the birds have been spreading it.
