Control Brittle Naiad, Marine Naiad
Manual/ Mechanical Control:
Physically pulling brittle naiad plants and digging up the roots can be an effective method of control. Brittle naiad will re-grow from seeds remaining in the water.
There are multiple options that all offer great control of brittle naiad:
- Dibrox – liquid that is diluted with water and sprayed over the plants, fast-acting
- Spritflo (for ponds with no outflow) – liquid that is poured into the water and spreads throughout the entire body of water, offers extended control
- Hydrothol (for lakes) – granules that are broadcast over the plants, fast-acting
- Flumigard (and surfactant) – granules that are dissolved in water and sprayed (early morning is best) over the plants, fast-acting
