66 Cal-IPC News Summer Development and release of a plant pathogen as a new biological control of yellow starthistle Tools by Dale M. Woods, California Department of Food and Agriculture A new biological control agent has received approval for release in California against yellow starthistle, Centaurea solstitialis. The. Biological Control Four natural enemies of yellow starthistle have been imported from Greece and are established as of in California as biological control agents: the three weevils Bangasternus orientalis, Eustenopus villosus, and Larinus curtus; and the gall fly Urophora sirunaseua.

Exotic pests and diseases have long been an important concern in agriculture. The problem is becoming increasingly urgent and complex because agricultural trade has been liberalized worldwide, and as a consequence, the probability of spreading a disease or a pest through national borders has become a real threat, not only for the agricultural industry but also for human health and . The only true preventive measure is to prevent animal access to these two plants. Several biological control agents, natural enemies of yellow starthistle, have been introduced into the environment to curb the plant's spread.

Centaurea solstitialis, yellow star-thistle, is a member of the family Asteraceae, native to the Mediterranean Basin region. The plant is also known as golden starthistle, yellow cockspur and St. Barnaby's thistle (or Barnaby thistle) The plant is a thorny winter annual species in the knapweed genusFamily: Asteraceae.
Eustenopus villosus is a species of true weevil known as the yellow starthistle hairy is used as an agent of biological pest control against the noxious weed yellow starthistle (Centaurea solstitialis). The adult weevil is hairy and brown with white stripes.
It Class: Insecta. Six insect biocontrol agents have been introduced, with limited success, for managing the invasive plant yellow starthistle (Centaurea solstitialis). Ina recently introduced fungal rust agent, Puccinia jaceae var.

The rust fungus Puccinia jaceae var. solstitialis (P. solstitialis) was first approved for release in California in as a classical biological control agent for Centaurea solstitialis. Yellow starthistle is an invasive, annual, spiny forb that, for the past 30 yr has been steadily advancing up the Salmon River Canyon in west central Idaho.
Ina decision was made to attempt to manage yellow starthistle by establishing a complex of biological control agents in a containment zone where the weed was most dense.
Between andsix species of seedhead-attacking Cited by: 4. Using biological control agents to help manage weed problems is more effective when the landowner understands the target weed biology, the biological control agents available and how they impact the weed, and the environmental and manage-ment restrictions in the area.
Basic plant biology. control agents have been released to control tocolote, and none of the agents introduced to control yellow starthistle have reproduced on tocolote. In a field test of alternate plant hosts, the weevil Bangasternus orientalis, which was introduced to control starthistle, did not reproduce on tocolote (Woods et al.

Biological control continues to be proven one of the most effective, environmentally sound, and cost-effective pest management approaches used to controlling arthropod and mite pests. It will play an increasingly important role in integrated pest management (IPM) programs as broad-spectrum pesticide use continues to decline.

Weeds affect many aspects of our daily lives, from the quantity and quality of the foods we enjoy, to the medicine we consume, the allergies we encounter, the frequency of fires in some parts of the world, and even the diversity of species in natural ecosystems.
