More bioagents released to help control spotted knapweed

Bioagents are one tool in the fight against invasive plants, and they are intensly studied before release to ensure they won't switch to another plant. Bioagents for a variety of plants have been released throughout NWIPC's operating area this year, including Cyphocleonus achates, a weevil that feeds on the roots of spotted and diffuse knapweed. It will take a few years to see it's effectiveness, but the struggle against invasive plants is long-term work.
