A comprehensive account of the investigations is in course of preparation and will, it is hoped, be presented in book form within two years.

The biological campaign against prickly-pear is an outstanding example of the control of a vigorous. Abstract does not appear. First page follows. Preface The critical phase of biological control work against weeds is the selection of species that will not harm other plants, or at least useful plants.

All other considerations are subordinate, and a suitable species for introduction into a country against a weed is one that is safe to introduce, irrespective of its other characteristics.—J. Cactoblastis cactorum (Berg) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae), the poster child of biological control, has recently invaded the United States.

The first US record was at Big Pine Key, Florida, in Since then it has moved rapidly northward into South Carolina. Fears are high that it will disperse, either on its own, or with human help, into the US desert southwest and by: Other accounts exist of specific episodes, Dod?s () ‘The Biological Campaign Against Prickly-Pear’, for example.

The most recent history available is that of Van Driesche and Bellows (). The most widely known insect enemy of pricklypear is the cactus moth, Cactoblastis cactorum (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae), which was credited with the successful biological control of pricklypear in Australia.

The cactus moth was introduced from Argentina into Australia inwhere it was free from its own natural parasites and predators. It provides a fresh and informative lens on South African scientific, social, agricultural and ecological history.

The past is juxtaposed against contemporary events (such as the prickly pear festival) and the book is amply illustrated with wonderful old photographs in which the prickly pear serves as a persistent backdrop for everyday life. Biological control or biocontrol is a method of controlling pests such as insects, mites, weeds and plant diseases using other organisms.

It relies on predation, parasitism, herbivory, or other natural mechanisms, but typically also involves an active human management can be an important component of integrated pest management (IPM) programs.

There are three basic strategies for. Prickly Pear is a painfully familiar western romance with all of the traditional trappings. Inside its pages you'll find a hard-hearted hero with a tragic past and a spunky heroine who tries her hardest to not only be one of the boys but to be *better* than the boys (usually failing badly and proving herself incompetent)/5.

After eating a prickly pear dish in Sedona I just had to see all of the things that could be done with it from a culinary standpoint. Was amazed to find this book. Gave me lots of ideas as well as growing and harvesting tips.

I'm excited to get cooking prickly pear delights. Seller shipped it very quickly and packaged it well/5(23). This book has been cited by the following publications. Ecological studies to assess the efficacy of biological control on populations of alligator weed and lippia.

Mann sought destructive insects in Mexico (–54) for lantana; in India ( and ) for Noogoora burr; .The control of prickly pear by the cactoblastis moth is still regarded as the world’s most monumental example of successful pest plant repression by biological means.

The insect was also utilised in other countries, and was again successful in controlling prickly pear. It is now, however, threatening the native prickly pear species of North.
