Where are bindweed, the bindweed moth, and the bindweed gall mite originally from? Have there been any inklings of possibly unbalancing ecosystems in other ways by releasing these insects?

Hopefully the calcium from the chickens will do the same in their yard (where the bindweed is). They haven't been interested in eating the bindweed, and so there hasn't been any change in their yard after a year of having them there. Maybe next year, though!
