Nature Weevils to the rescue: Tiny bugs released in Union County (New Jersey) to attack 'mile-a-minute' weed:
"The battlefield lies in Union County, along a stretch of the verdant Watchung Reservation.

"The invader: a rapacious Asian weed that has spread unchecked since Hurricane Sandy, swallowing trees, hillsides and rocks and smothering all beneath it.

"The defender: A six-legged speck of a bug known as Rhinoncomimus latipes, a variety of weevil.

"Yesterday, the war began."
Dun, dun, daaan.
