THE POTENTIAL OF AGLAIS URTICAE L. FOR BIOLOGICAL CONTROL OF PARIETARIA PENSYLVANICA MUNHELEM. EX WILLD.
Dariusz Piesik, Krystyna Wyrostkiewicz, Anna Sawilska
Chemical control of weeds in some environments and due to the condition and degree of weed-growth does not bring expected results. For that reason alternative methods have been searched for. Biological control of weeds has been traditionally perceived as reducing the agrophage population to such a level where they do not constitute a threat. In the present research, an attempt has been made to introduce Aglais urticae L. to control the population of Parietaria pensylvanica M. ex. Willd.
Key words: biological control of weeds, Parietaria pensylvanica M. ex Willd., Aglais urticae L..
