How to Control Floating Weeds
The most common floating aquatic weeds are duckweed and watermeal. Floating plants are not rooted to the bottom, although some may take hold of the ground with modified leaves or stems resembling roots. These plants are easy to pull out since they do not bear true roots.
Manual/ Mechanical Control:
Floating plants can be effectively removed manually or mechanically if every plant is pulled out. New growth can occur from seeds that have dropped to the bottom or regrowth from fragments left behind.
There are a variety of broad-spectrum herbicides, and the exact treatment recommended will depend on the target species and the body of water to be treated. Keep scrolling to see our recommended products.
