Apparently, we’re under alien attack.
Now, if that was actually a current event, it might have been written with a little more punch. But as it turns out, these aliens have been invading us for over a century, and to make matters worse they hitched a ride here with our very own ancestors.
The bad news is, without chemical warfare out methods of eradication are slow and not guaranteed effective. The good news is, you probably won’t find any species of these aliens with sharp, pointy teeth or a laser gun.
After all, we’re only talking plants here.
