Horticulture/Biocontrols for Weeds

For some weeds, particularly invasive species, biocontrols have been selected and developed as a form of passive control in natural areas. While they are rarely used in garden situations, they are sometimes employed in managing meadows or woodlands. Most weed biocontrols are insects, though certain fungi are also used for some cases.

Biocontrols are much more commonly used for management of pest animals and microorganisms.
