Biological Control – A Management Tool in BC

Biological control, or biocontrol, is a very important tool in controlling invasive species. It involves controlling various pests, including invasive plants, by introducing natural enemies. Using biological control as a management tool in BC involves a multifaceted approach, from navigating legislation, policies and funding, to examining multi-country research, current science, data and databases, agencies and practitioners.

Most importantly, using biological control to manage invasive plants requires an understanding of the biocontrol agents, the plants to be controlled and the life cycles and timing of each. This presentation provides an overview of these topics and where practitioners can find more information on using biocontrol effectively.
