Eurasian Watermilfoil (EWM) Eurasian watermilfoil (Figure 14) is a perennial plant that was first introduced to North America during the late 19th century. It is now found throughout the United States and Canada (Smith & Barko, ). EWM grows very quickly after ice out in spring, shading out and out-competing many native aquatic Size: 3MB.

Eurasian watermilfoil Biological Control: Cultures of Eurasian watermilfoil were established under controlled conditions and inoculated with a native insect herbivore, the Milfoil weevil. Feeding activity was quantified, and studies on the reproduction and other life-cycle traits were begun.

The introduction of grass carp is considered illegal in other states, including Minnesota, Vermont, and Wisconsin. Eurasian watermilfoil is not a preferred plant and consequently desirable native plants can be predated.

Generally, grass carp should not be used for Eurasian watermilfoil control. The Problem: Eurasian watermilfoil was first reported in the lake in the s, and grew abundantly after Hurricane Agnes in dominating the aquatic plant community until the early s.

2, Findings: Aquatic vegetation surveying conducted from to the late s identified a crash of Eurasian watermilfoil populations in the early s. M.L. Projects.

The following documents are short abstracts for projects funded during the biennium. Some of the weeds with high biological control prospects have native range exploration underway and candidate agents identified (e.g. angustifolia, A. petiolata, I. tinctoria). Others will require new programs of research in the native range to identify potential biological control agents, but.

The following documents are short abstracts for projects funded during the biennium. The fungus Mycoleptodiscus terrestris has been shown in laboratory research to reduce the biomass of Eurasian watermilfoil significantly and may serve as a possible biocontrol agent.

The North American herbivorous weevil, Euhrychiopsis lecontie, may be associated with recent natural declines in Eurasian milfoil abundance in some lakes in North. Biological control provides a highly economical and sustainable approach to managing widespread weeds.

Provided that the proper steps are taken to ensure host-specific agents, biological control of weeds can be implemented with a high level of safety (McEvoyPemberton ). Shearer, J.F., Durham, B.D., and Grodowitz, M.J.
