Partial control of the species has been achieved in New Zealand by biocontrol methods (Hayes et al., 2013).Amynothrips andersoni, a biocontrol agent originally from Argentina, has been introduced into the USA; it is established in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. A. philoxeroides has a very similar appearance to other species native to South America in the same family (Amaranthaceae) named as mukunuwenna or sessile joyweed (Alternanthera sessilis).
