Cattails

Control Cattail

Cattails can quickly ruin a pond’s visual and recreational benefits. Control is best achieved through disruption of the root system. Cutting cattails 2 or 3 inches under the waterline 2 or 3 times to drown them can actually stimulate them if done in May. Pulling them out by the roots can be impractical.

We recommend using a Glyphosate 5.4 Herbicide and a surfactant for easy control without digging up the landscape or concern over maintaining water level.

Using our treatment method, herbicide travels throughout the plant killing both the roots and vegetative portions. Simply spray on the portions of the cattails that can be reached. There is no need to spray from multiple directions.
