Giant Salvinia Weevil Research


Giant Salvinia weevil research at the Corp of Engineers Lewisville Aquatic Eco-System Research Facility near Dallas in 2007. We’re now past the initial research stage and implementing use of weevils on a larger scale, thanks to increased funding from the Texas Legislature. Weevils have been proven effective in Texas at places like B.A. Steinhagen reservoir. But they’re just one part of a multi-pronged strategy, along with careful use of herbicides, mechanical controls and public awareness and education to prevent people spreading the problem. The only true defense against this invasive species is to prevent its establishment by cleaning, draining and drying your boat, trailer and gear before leaving the lake.
