Biological control of leafy spurge in the United States began in the s with the introduction of Hyles euphorbia. Fifteen nonindigenous insect species have been approved for release in the United States for the control of leafy spurge. Different biological control agents. investigated (Nico et al., ).

Biological control using microbial antagonists is one potential alternative to chemical nematicides. Among the biological control agents that have been assessed are egg-parasitic fungi, nematode-trapping fungi, bacteria, and polyphagous predatory nematodes (Gray, ; Kerry, ; Kerry.

The practice of biological control usually involves one or more of the following approaches: 1) the importation of exotic natural enemies (classical biological control); 2) the conservation of resident or introduced beneficial organisms; and 3) the mass production and periodic release of natural enemies.

Biological control is often an important component of IPM programs, and is considered one of a number of bio-based pest management tactics. biological control, and the view that it is only specialist natural enemies able to coordinate their reproduction with changes in pest density that can contribute to pest control, is now out-dated.

Detailed quantitative studies of pest control by spiders in the field are now justified, and a range of sophisti. The goal of biological control activities within APHIS Plant Protection and Quarantine (PPQ) is to safeguard America's agricultural production and natural areas from significant economic losses and negative impacts caused by insects, other arthropods, nematodes, weeds, and diseases of regulatory significance to the federal government, state departments of agriculture, tribal governments, and cooperators within the continental United States.

USDA will comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws governing the. use, storage, transport, and disposal of potentially hazardous biological agents.
