How long will biological control take before my weeds are no longer an economic problem?
Even in the most successful of cases, years are required before an insect can catch up with an exotic weed species. In some cases, multiple insect species were needed before successful control was achieved. Each weed has certain vulnerable stages which we try to exploit using biological control. Regardless of how many different species we release, biological control takes time. It is not a quick fix, but a permanent, self-perpetuating weed control tactic.
