Successful flea beetle release site.

This is a 6 year old release site for flea beetles.  The area was once very heavy in leafy spurge, today it has native grass growing in the area. I consider this a success.  Photo by Mike Battaiola

Another view of the same release site notice the 1 spurge plant  at the bottom of the picture.
