t N i t N a w The native aquatic weevil Euhrychiopsis lecontei Dietz) is a potential biological control agent of Eursian watermilfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum L.). The eevil reduces the viability of milfoil by mining plant tems. We determined the influence of temperature on he developmental rates of the weevil and damage to urasian watermilfoil stems. Single E. lecontei eggs ere laid on rooted plants in individual tubes filled ith water and 16 such tubes were randomly assigned o each of eight… CONTINUE READING
