Biological Control Program Updated:08/2013

The Biological Control Program is an integral component of the Plant Health and Pest Prevention Service's (PHPPS) Pest Prevention Program. The program helps to minimize the economic and environmental impact of noxious weed and insect species through the implementation of biological control programs throughout the state. Implementation requires the rearing of appropriate natural enemies and their release and evaluation in agricultural, natural and urban environments.
