1. Release Lygodium microphyllum biological control agents within the Southwest Florida Water Management District. 2. Monitor establishment, impact and dispersal of released agents.
Releases of Neomusotima conspurcatalis, Floracarus perrepae and other approved Lygodium microphyllum biological control agents (if available) will be conducted within the Southwest Florida Water Management District. These sites will be monitored several times per year to determine agent establishment, overwintering success, impact on the target weed and dispersal rate of the agents.
