Nebraska's noxious weeds are not native to the state and, in most cases, not native to the United States. These plants have been introduced either on purpose or by accident. When this happens, the natural enemies which can attack these plant species are usually left behind in the plant's home environment. Natural enemies are most often a plant disease or insect which may attack one or several species of a plant.
