The Red River Waterway Commission has made strides in controlling the spread of the salvinia. Existing control methods include mechanical removal, chemical control and the use of weevils, but an agreement with Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas could add another method in their toolbox.

Maryland Falls Victim to Harmful Invasive Species - Invasive species are problematic because they can aggressively establish themselves very quickly after introduction, and often end up in direct competition with native species. Because of this, invasive species can quickly and dramatically alter natural habitats and displace native flora and fauna species. In the U.S. alone, 45 percent of species that are listed as rare, threatened or endangered are designated into this category in part due to invasive species.
