Abstract: This report describes the initial work involved with the evaluation of two species of insects for biological control of Myriophyllum spicatum L. (Eurasian watermilfoil). It is believed that both insect species were accidentally introduced from Europe. They are Litodactylus leucogaster (Marsh.) and Acentropus niveus (Olivier). L. leucogaster appears to be relatively host-specific. Researchers have been unable to establish a viable colony of A. niveus. All results are very preliminary at this writing.
