    Corps Tiny Weapon Winning the Bio Control Battle

    Nate Harms, U.S. Army Engineering Research and Development Center Research Biologist, holds a devoured piece of the noxious alligator weed with a tiny alligator flea beetle. This aquatic invasive species blocks transportation routes, threatens native species, and reduces water capacity in our reservoirs. The alligator flea beetle measures 5-7mm in length, an eight-ounce cup of 250 beetle can consume an acre of the invasive weed. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Invasive Management Species Branch is committed to providing technical support for the control of invasive species in our national and regional ecosystem restoration program.
