In 1998 biological control agents, the weevils Neochetina eichhorniae and N. bruchi, were distributed to Fuzhou, Fuqing and Fuan cities of Fujian Province where water hyacinth was causing great damage. They established quickly in the Fujian Province, which is warmer than the Zhejiang Province. Significant control has been achieved at several release sites but no detailed survey results are available yet.
