CattPlex 32 oz Aquatic Herbicide - Kill Cattails and Shoreline Grasses

Treats 10,000 square feet

Systemic aquatic herbicide- kills aquatic weeds to the roots. Catt Plex is a glyphosate based treatment to kill emergent pond weeds. 

Effected aquatic weeds include:

Cattails
Phragmites
Water Lilies
Water Shield
Alligator Weed
Purple Loosestrife
Smartweed
Spatterdock
Water Primrose

Why should I use CattPlex?

When properly applied, Catt Plex will kill to the root any emergent weeds (exposed above the water line) that are sprayed. Unlike other pond herbicides, Catt Plex does not stay resident in water, making it safe for fish and wildlife.

When is the best time to use CattPlex?

For best results, apply Catt Plex to mature plants. Catt Plex should be applied to target weeds early on a clear sunny day. This gives the aquatic herbicide time to be drawn into the weed during peak photosynthesis.

How long until I see results?

As weeds die they begin to turn yellow. The amount of time it takes to see results varies based on the weed species, but in general you will see results within 7-10 days. 

After pond weeds die, then what?

Once aquatic weeds have died, they can be physically removed with a pond rake. Another option is to treat with Muck Remover to break down the dead vegetation. The vegetation will eventually break down into muck over time if left alone. The Muck Remover cleans up shorelines to create a more usable pond, and a healthier habitat for aquatic life.
