Managing mimosa

Mimosa pigra, one of Australia's worst environmental weeds, has spread across rangeland areas from Western Australia to Queensland. An Australian biocontrol project was begun in 1979 and 11 insects and two fungal pathogens have been released, with varying success. The latest agent, a leaf-feeding moth, Macaria pallidata, was released in 2002.
