It's War! Palisade Scientist Uses Bugs To Attack Toxic Plants
Now he is on the front lines in the battle against the Russian Knapweed. It's biological warfare. The bugs are brought in because they will only feed on the knapweed. Like laser guided missiles, they seek out the weed and move on into the plant, literaly.
This is not the first time the Palisde operation has raised bugs to attack non native plants. I am told the beetles released to tackle the tammarask problem is doing great.
SO knapweeds listen up! The flys are coming you have been warned!
