Why are invasive species dangerous to the environment?

Invasive species are dangerous to the environment because they compete hardly with local species for limited resources and disrupt the local ecosystems. In many cases, invasive species carry dangerous diseases or force native species to relocate in order to find food and shelter. As a result, native species (plants or animals) are pressured and may go extinct, something that harms biodiversity and natural ecosystem balance.
