TEAM 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.
