Kind Of Like Godzilla v. Mothra, But Much Smaller


The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) Inland Fisheries Division is currently distributing a Florida strain of weevils throughout the state to fight against aquatic invasive weeds.

The weevils will serve as a biocontrol management tool in combination with herbicide treatments to help combat common salvinia.  The weevils are host specific, which means they will only consume common salvinia and will not damage native vegetation.

How much you want to bet in twenty years we’re hearing about the state’s battle against an invasion of weevils?
