A comment titled: Re: Salvinia weevils in response to a report titled: Salvinia weevils

We own 1000 acres in McElroy swamp along petite a mite. LDWF released a couple thousand on our place 5 years ago to study the effects. Results of study= NO noticeable reduction in reduction of salvinia whatsoever. LDWF agents conducting the study attributed one major factor mong others that essentially render the Beatles useless to significantly reducing the present amounts of the invasive species and the prevention of future terminations. 1: the beetles cannot survive any freezing temperatures. More than 90% of those Beatles released were killed by the first cold front. 2nd factor is that salving a can la dormant under water for up to 6 years prior to germinating. So even if we were able to completely eradicate all surface salving a from Louisiana waterways, new crops are very likely to germinate and reappear year after year
