Control Cattails

Many people ask what kills Cattails. The best herbicide to kill Cattails is Imox herbicide paired with a surfactant. This Cattail killer will be absorbed through the parts of the plants it is sprayed on then translocated to the root system to kill both the plants and roots.

Manual/Mechanical Control:

Physically pulling Cattails and digging up the roots can be an effective method of control. If burned, Cattails will grow back stronger the following year.

Herbicide Control:

Imox herbicide paired with a Surfactant is the best herbicide to kill Cattails. These products together are called our Cattail and Water Lily Control. Thoroughly wetting the plants in late summer or early fall is the most practical time to treat. This is when the Cattails are directing their energies to the root system, which helps pull the herbicide down to the roots to kill both those and the vegetative portions.
