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 Zygogramma bicolorata will feed on the weed and reduce its effects on the crop lands, grazing, livestock, and it will reduce health risks to humans.
