Granular Herbicide Options for Lakes

July 11, 2018

Granular Herbicide Options for Lakes

Lake season is in full-swing! Fun on the water can include all sorts of things, like boating, swimming, and fishing to name a few. Your summer is going great, until you notice those pesky lake weeds sneaking up on you, threating to take all your summer fun away.

Instead of struggling with raking your weeds (which will just spread the problem and be a waste of time) you can look at a few easy to apply granular aquatic herbicide options to kill whatever you find growing beneath your water. Granular herbicides are easy to apply because they do not require any dilution or spray equipment. You can simply use a broadcasting spreader, or just your hand or scoop to cast out the pellets into the water.

First thing’s first… go out and take a close look at what kind of problem or weed you have going on. Pull some out of the water for a closer look, or head over to our aquatic plant identifier tool to help you find out what you have.

If you have a common lake weed, such as milfoil, hydrilla, coontail, curly-leaf pondweed, etc., you may want to consider the following granular options for your treatment plan.
