When to Treat Curlyleaf Pondweed
If you have a pond or are treating large areas of a lake, and all you have is curlyleaf pondweed (clp), there are a few things to consider before treating. You can treat anytime the clp is growing, but the key is treating before the plant forms turions, or seeds. Though the seeds are viable for years, if you treat multiple years in a row, you will deplete that seed bank and reduce the clp that comes up in the spring.
When using Aquathol K, you want to wait until the water temps are above 50 degrees F. Wind can potentially be your biggest threat to a lake treatment. You want to apply when the wind is calm, and is expected to remain calm for 12+ hours post treatment. The longer you can keep the product in that area, the better the results will be.
Dosages are important. Refer to the label, or call us for amounts needed. Also, a permit may be required, so contact your local authorities to verify.
