How do you stop the Eurasian watermilfoil from spreading?

Chemical Control: The chemical process involves introducing herbicides such as Aquacide Pellets into the water in order to get rid of the infection. The herbicides are applied on Eurasian Water Milfoil in order to control its growth.

Why is milfoil bad?

Water milfoil can quickly become a problem because it spreads rapidly forming mats of vegetation on the water surface. Milfoil mats can rob oxygen from the water by preventing the wind from mixing the oxygenated surface waters to deeper water and can also increase the sedimentation rate by trapping sediments.
