At this stage, no biocontrol agents for Boneseed have successfully established in Tasmania. For example, the Black Boneseed Beetle or the Bitou Tip Moth that was released at Rosevears failed. Predation pressure, poor climatic matching between the insect’s origins in South Africa and release locations in south-east Australia, and host preferences have been implicated in lack of establishment.
