Abstract Despite substantial increases in public awareness and biosecurity systems, introductions of non-native arthropods remain an unwelcomed consequence of escalating rates of international trade and travel. Detection of an established but unwanted non-native organism can elicit a range of responses, including implementation of an eradication program. Previous studies have reviewed the concept of eradication, but these efforts were largely descriptive and focused on selected case studies. We… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Will growing invasive arthropod biodiversity outpace our ability for eradication?
TLDR
It is argued that a rapid increase in biodiversity of invasive and economically or environmentally damaging organisms represents a substantial and underestimated challenge for managers wanting to prevent their establishment, requiring a shift in research focus to accelerate delimitation and suppression options with less reliance on insecticides. Expand
Eradication and containment of non-native forest insects: successes and failures
The problem of forest insect invasions is intensifying. Non-native forest insects are invading virtually every world region, and many are causing severe ecological and economic impacts. BiosecurityExpand
Eradication of tephritid fruit fly pest populations: outcomes and prospects.
TLDR
Because the likelihood of eradication declines with an increase in the area infested, it pays to invest in effective surveillance networks that allow early detection and delimitation while invading populations are small, thereby greatly favouring eradication success. Expand
Post-Border Forest Biosecurity in Australia: Response to Recent Exotic Detections, Current Surveillance and Ongoing Needs
TLDR
There remains a need for a structured national approach to forest biosecurity surveillance, preparedness, and responses and a lower success rate of Australian forest eradication programs than the world average. Expand
Eradication of Invading Insect Populations: From Concepts to Applications.
TLDR
New developments in the understanding of the dynamics of low-density populations, the availability of highly effective treatment tactics, and bioeconomic analyses of eradication strategies offer new opportunities for developing more effective surveillance and eradication programs. Expand
Plant pathogen eradication: determinants of successful programs
TLDR
The most successful treatment was tissue culture, often in combination with thermotherapy to eradicate viral or bacterial pathogens from plants held in in germplasm collections, whilst 6% of these programs had no reported outcome, there were no recorded failures of this strategy. Expand
Challenges in confirming eradication success of invasive red-eared sliders
Confirming eradication success can be notoriously difficult and costly, especially when the species is still present but remains undetected, due to very low population densities and imperfectExpand
Can we replace toxicants, achieve biosecurity, and generate market position with semiochemicals?
TLDR
A rising frequency of incursions of alien invasive species and consequent rise in official eradication programs due to globalisation points strongly to the need for further investment in the areas of discovery and development of surveillance and eradication technologies, from a sound knowledge of chemical ecology.

TLDR
It is shown that the false negatives in declaring elimination success hinge on the easily-achieved regulatory criteria, which have virtually guaranteed the failure of complete extirpation of this pest, and the need for agricultural agencies worldwide to revisit eradication protocols in which monitoring and treatments are terminated when the regulatory criteria for declaring eradication are met. Expand
Using spatially explicit surveillance models to provide confidence in the eradication of an invasive ant
TLDR
The use of spatially explicit surveillance models are used to estimate the probability that Argentine ants have been eradicated from an offshore island site, given their absence across four surveys and three surveillance methods, conducted since ant control was applied. Expand

Eradication of invasive forest insects: concepts, methods, costs and benefits
TLDR
Although progress has been made in the development, utilisation and integration of eradication tools, some insects are still not amenable to treatment, and there is a need for new methods shown to have a minimal effect on other organisms, including human beings. Expand
Eradication and pest management.
TLDR
In situations where heterogeneity of land use patterns make it difficult to prevent reinvasion of the pest, education and area-wide suppression are probably more realistic goals than eradication. Expand
Which Factors Affect the Success or Failure of Eradication Campaigns against Alien Species?
TLDR
In man-made habitats the probability of success was generally high in Australasia, while in Europe and the Americas it was higher for local infestations that are easier to deal with, and for international campaigns that are likely to profit from cross-border cooperation. Expand
When are eradication campaigns successful? A test of common assumptions
TLDR
It is recommended that eradication measures should generally concentrate on the very early phase of invasions when infestations are still relatively small, and some factors suggested as being crucial may be less important than previously thought, at least for the organisms tested here. Expand
Eradication programs for the arthropod parasites of livestock.
TLDR
Two species of cattle fever ticks, Boophilus annulatus and B. microplus, were eradicated from the southern United States in a cooperative state-federal program that began in 1907 and was successfully completed in 1960, while three species of African ticks were eliminated from the United States before they could become firmly established.

Improving ant eradications: details of more successes, a global synthesis and recommendations.
TLDR
What the authors see as the actions that will provide the greatest immediate enhancement of invasive ant management, which are proactive management and greater incorporation of ant biology into eradication protocols are identified. Expand
Insect Eradication Programs
TLDR
Some 30 years of experience in suppressing incipient infestations of pests introduced into the United States provide data on which to measure success or failure as the case may be. Expand
Ecological aspects of biosecurity surveillance design for the detection of multiple invasive animal species
TLDR
The ecological basis for the design, the flexibility of the surveillance scheme, how it meets the above challenges, design limitations, and how it can be updated as data are collected as a basis for adaptive management are discussed. Expand
Arrival rate of nonindigenous insect species into the United States through foreign trade
TLDR
Conservative estimates of establishment suggest that 42 insect species may have become established through these four cargo pathways between 1997 and 2001 and the effectiveness of current efforts to monitor arrival of nonindigenous insect species is evaluated. Expand
Control of Invaders
TLDR
Invasions of organisms have been of great concern to those involved in the various aspects of food and fiber production and some pest management strategies have been developed to deal specifically with invading species, including eradication and classical biological control. Expand
