Milfoil

Control Milfoil

Some exotic species of milfoil are very aggressive, displacing native species. Eurasian milfoil is an exotic invasive submersed perennial. It reproduces both vegetatively and, less commonly, sexually (seeds). Rhizome division, budding and fragmentation are examples of vegetative reproduction. A single piece of fragmented Eurasian milfoil can multiply into 250 million new plants in one year!

Eurasion milfoil can take over a lake in two years. Large masses of Eurasian milfoil can lead to flooding and interfere with fishing, swimming and boating. Eurasian milfoil mats can increase mosquito habitat and decrease oxygen levels.

We recommend using treatments once plants are established but before flowering occurs. Our Dock & Swim Area Products or Hydrothol Granular provide excellent control on Milfoil. Dibrox® Herbicide, a Diquat producut, will also control many other submerged weeds.

Navigate is a very selective granular aquatic herbicide for control of Eurasian water milfoil. No swimming restrictions apply with this EPA approved herbicide.

Our lake rakes, including our mechanical LAKEMAID®, are an excellent mechanical alternative to keep plants from ever starting to grow.
