Manual/ Mechanical Control:
Physically pulling coontail weed can be an effective way to get rid of coontail in a pond or lake. Coontail will re-grow from any fragments remaining in the water.
- Dibrox (for ponds or lakes) – liquid that is diluted with water and sprayed over the plants, fast-acting. Dibrox will offer some control.
- 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
