    Among the methods for control of yellow starthistle, the most widely practiced techniques include mowing, livestock grazing, prescribed burning, biological control, and herbi-cides (DiTomaso et al. c; Thomsen et al. ). Un-derstanding the biology of yellow starthistle is key to devel-oping a successful control program (Thomsen et al. ).   Evaluating biological control of yellow starthistle (Centaurea solstitialis) in California: A GIS based supply–demand demographic model.

    Yellow Starthistle Biology and Control by C.D. Thomsen A complete guide to the biology and methodologies of control of the yellow starthistle problem. Proceedings of the XV International Symposium on Biological Control of Weeds Catalog of Species Introduced into Canada, Mexico, the USA, or the USA Overseas Territories for Classical Biological Control of Arthropods, to New Invaders of the Southeast New Invaders of the Southwest New Invaders of the Northeast and Northcentral New Invaders of the Northwest North American Weed .

    Goals / Objectives 1)Conduct studies on Yellow starthistle growth and development. 2)Evaluate the field biology and impact of biological control agents in lowering yellow starthistle population levels in the field. 3)Cooperate with UC and ARS scientists in constructing and testing plant growth models of important weed species. Biological Control. There are a number of biological agents used on yellow starthistle. The yellow starthistle hairy weevil, Eustenopus villosus, larvae and adults interfer with the seed production of yellow starthistle. The adults feed on young seedheads and the larvae feed inside flowerheads. The yellow starthistle flower weevil, Larinus.

Yellow starthistle (Centaurea solstitialis L.) is an invasive weed introduced from the Mediterranean region. It predominantly infests rangelands in the western United States. This second edition manual on the biological control of yellow starthistle is intended to give weed and land managers guidelines to develop and successfully establish a starthistle biocontrol by: The weevil was first released in the United States for biological control of yellow starthistle, Centaurea solstitialis L.

The biological control of yellow starthistle (Centaurea solstitialis) by four capitulum-feeding insects (weevils Bangasternus orientalis and Eustenopus villosus, and flies Urophora sirunaseva and Chaetorellia succinea), as affected by plant competition with annual grasses, is analyzed using a weather-driven, physiologically based, age-structured, simulation by: Yellow starthistle was probably introduced into the United States through contaminated alfalfa in the mid’s.

BIOLOGY & SPREAD Spread of yellow starthistle is by seed and each seedhead can produce from 35 to approximately 80 seeds. Biological Control Four natural enemies of yellow starthistle have been imported from Europe and by were well established in California.

The flower head tephritid Chaetorellia australis was studied to determine its host specificity for biological control of yellow starthistle (Centaurea solstitialis) in the USA.

Flies from flower heads of C. cyanus collected in northern Greece were tested for oviposition and development on 9 plant species in no-choice host tests during the summers of in Albany, California.Biological control of yellow starthistle began in North America in Since then, six biocontrol insects have been released: three beetles and three flies.

All are seed feeding. All the beetles are weevils and include the bud weevil, Bangasternus orientalis, the hairy weevil, Eustenopus villosus, and the flower weevil, Larinus curtus.and (6) yellow starthistle seeds remain alive in the soil for up to 10 years, enabling the weed to reappear even when traditional herbicide control methods were pursued.

The combination of these six factors continues to enable yellow starthistle to successfully dominate vegetation in vast areas. Any long-term solution to the yellow starthistle.
