Parthenium hysterophorus is an invasive weed species in East Africa that causes damage to crop lands, grazing, biodiversity, humans, animals, meat, and milk.
Biocontrol agents such as Listronotus setosipennis will feed on the weed and reduce its effects on the crop lands, grazing, livestock, and will reduce health risks to humans.
