Classical biological control is the best among the viable options for sustainable management of invasive weeds, especially where other technologies such as chemical and mechanical control are unacceptable due to cost and adverse impact on the environment. Available cost--benefit ratios for biological control trials made for some of the most serious weeds indicate that classical biological control has given the highest returns for the monies spent.
