Mistletoes are highly adapted to parasitic life on a wide variety of hosts, especially on woody plants. There are two main mistletoe groups, namely holoparasites and photo-autotrophic hemiparasites. Mistletoe infected plants normally face reduced vigour, dieback, or even the death of the whole tree due to competition for water and minerals. Mistletoe infections are spread mainly by birds, wind and rainwater. The methods of mistletoe control have been so far applied around the world, including mechanical measures (pruning mistletoe clusters, then covering with paint or wrapping in black plastic) and chemical remedies (using glyphosate herbicide or ethephon); particularly, ethephon is highly effective against mistletoes.
