Q: How can I get biocontrol agents for my melaleuca?

A: The melaleuca weevil and psyllid are already widely distributed and because the adults fly, they disperse on their own as well. So one or both agents is most likely already present on your melaleuca trees. If you would like to enhance their populations by releasing more on your trees, Ken Gioeli with the St. Lucie County Cooperative Extension Office will ship them to you. You can find the order form online.
