Recognition of CCC Biological control agents and their activity.

It would appear that people do recognise Cat's Claw Creeper (CCC) and a (?) Jewel Beetle.
Do they recognise CCC as a Weed of National Significance (WONS)????
People do not seem to recognise the three CCC biological control agents viz. Tingids, Leaf-tying Moth and Jewel Beetles or the damage they inflict on CCC
What is also evident from the observations (based on Research Grade status) is that few people have a knowledge of the type of damage that Jewel Beetles, Tingids and the Leaf Tying Moth can do to CCC.

So, how do we change this perception?
How do we elevate CCC to the real level of a WONS i.e. Weed of National Significance that is no longer a weed of riparian systems but a true weed of environmental significance
