Biological control of noxious weeds is an effective and widespread method often used by rangeland managers in the western United States. However, once biological control agents, usually insects, are released onto public and private lands there are few, if any, programs to follow up and monitor the effectiveness of these agents. A technique being used by some land managers is the use of student crews to implement monitoring programs. The Southern Idaho Bio-Control (SIBC) program is one program that has successfully used student crews during the past 10 years for this purpose.
