Biological Control and Leafy Spurge
by Steve Merritt
Emerging early in spring and with an already extensive root system, exceeding 20 feet in depth, leafy spurge is highly adaptable, reproducing and spreading under various conditions. While a variety of management tools have been used, no single tool offers the perfect solution. Through many years of research, flea beetles have become an effective, affordable, sustainable, target specific and easy to use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) agent in the biocontrol management of leafy spurge.
