Ageratina adenophora is regulated by Procecidochares utilis and the cost of the introduction of P. utilis has been minimal. In many of introduced nations, P. utilis fly has suppressed the weed and contained its spread, despite heavy parasitism by local parasitoids in some countries. Except South Africa, none of the countries affected by A. adenophora has considered further introductions of additional natural enemies.
