Biological Control and Leafy Spurge brochure cover

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.

Integrated Pest Management (IPM)

by TEAM Leafy Spurge staff

With more concern about the use of pesticides, biologically based control methods are becoming the preferred foundation upon which to build better Integrated Pest Management (IPM) strategies.

TEAM Leafy Spurge: The SPURGE Scourge

by Steve Merritt

Invading grazing lands and reducing rangeland productivity, leafy spurge (Euphorbia esula), a native of Eurasia, drastically reduces land value and has infested five million acres of land in 29 states. An overview of the research program TEAM Leafy Spurge, this publication outlines the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach as well as the team effort to effectively provide a regional strategy in the control of leafy spurge.

TEAM Leafy Spurge: A Success Story in Progress brochure coverTEAM Leafy Spurge:

A Success Story in Progress

by TEAM Leafy Spurge staff

Controlled by natural enemies in its native habitat of Eurasia, leafy spurge (Euphorbia esula) continues to infest a staggering amount of landscapes ranging from open prairie and hillsides to riparian areas and lowlands. At a cost of over $144 million a year in production losses, control expenses as well as other impacts to the economy, leafy spurge has literally forced some ranchers out of business. Effective and affordable Integrated Pest Management (IPM) strategies implemented have been effective at achieving affordable control of leafy spurge.

Give Leafy Spurge Biocontrol a chance to work for YOU brochure coverLeafy Spurge Biocontrol: Make it Work

by Steve Merritt

Originally issued as a press release by Montana State University News Service

A sustainable, long-term solution, biocontrol increases the production of desirable grasses and the re-establishment of native vegetation. Success depends on how, where and when initial releases of biological control agents are made.
