If you see leafy spurge, please report it on EDDMaps: www.eddmaps.org/
For more information and control methods see:
Biological control is an option for reducing large infestations of leafy spurge. Adult leafy spurge beetles (Aphthona lacertosa) feed on the leaves and lay eggs at the base of spurge plants. Larvae feed on the roots over the winter until they pupate and emerge as adults the following summer.
