Fly could control Cape Ivy

Cape Ivy is a big problem in Cambria’s forests. The only herbicide that has been effective is glyphosate, which has been connected to causing cancer and is difficult to apply. To kill Cape Ivy, a dilute solution has to be applied to the leaves, not enough to burn the leaves off but enough to be carried to the roots and kill them. A biocontrol could be the answer to reducing or eliminating it.
