Denny Bohon (cq), of the Pike and San Isabel National Forest, shows off a pint of 24,000 thousand Aphthona Flea Beetles (cq) which will be put into an overgrown patch of the invasive Leafy Spurge weed, along the South Platte River, Thursday, June 16, 2005. The weed has moved through much of Pike National Forest and threatens native plants living in the area. 300,000 beetles were released, and will begin reproducing immediately. By Fall 2005 the beetles will begin feeding on Surge roots, which threaten native plants by taking over food and sunlight with its rapid seed production and strong root system. Bohon (cq) said it is important for land owners in the area to know what is on their land so they can take action against the weed.
