The Illinois Biological Control Program Partnership

The ongoing biological control project against purple loosestrife in Illinois would not be successful without a combination of effort from a wide variety of sources. The partnership developed in this program is critical to it success. From the group listed below has come site selection for beetle release, release permits, the critical funding and beetle rearing expertise and moral support for the program.
