      Hydrellia. spp. for Management of Monoecious. Hydrilla verticillata (L.f.) Royle. by Michael Grodowitz. 1, Julie Nachtrieb. 2, Nathan Harms. 3, and Jan Freedman. 1. PURPOSE: The main objective of this study was to de termine the suitability of using introduced hydrilla leaf-mining flies (Hydrellia pakistanae Deonier and H. balciunasi Bock) for the BACKGROUND: Four insect biological control agents have been released in the United States as management tools for the control of hydrilla. They include two weevil species, Bagous affinis Hustache and B. hydrillae O’Brien, and two leaf-mining fly species, Hydrellia pakistanae Deonier and H. balciunasi

      release of close to 2,, spp. at sites on Lake Gaston, NC since have Hydrellia failed to provide convincing evidence of establishment let alone population increase and impact. Recent anecdotal information from Guntersville Reservoir, AL suggests that shifts from a dioecious hydrilla dominated system to one composed mainly of   two Hydrellia flies (one from India and one from Australia) have become established. The fly H. pakistanae is widespread in the southern US, whereas H. balciunasi is localized in distribution. Populations of Hydrellia flies have not reached densities high enough to control hydrilla,

    Testing of candidate biological control agents to estimate their likely field host ranges in the area of release has been part of weed biological control for several decades, with evolving techniques and goals. Similar efforts have been made less often for parasitoids and predators being introduced for arthropod biological control. Here, we review both techniques of host range testing and   Release and establishment of Hydrellia balciunasi (Diptera: Ephydridae) for the biological control of the submersed aquatic plant Hydrilla verticillata (Hydrocharitaceae) in the United States.

In addition, two shore-fly species, H. balciunasi Bock and H. pakistanae Deonier, were introduced from Australia and Asia, respectively, for the biological control of the Hydrellia balciunasi was released in but had limited success due to variation in hydrilla populations and parasitism by native wasps among other factors.
