Flea Beetles Offer Leafy Spurge Biocontrol Option

In North Dakota, landowners have the opportunity to collect flea beetles to release on their property for control of leafy spurge, reports Farm & Ranch Guide. The North Dakota Weed Control Association holds field days at sites with healthy populations of the beetles, where participants collect beetles with cloth nets and then divide them up and receive thousands to take home. The beetles have proven an effective control for the noxious weed.
