Anybody have any ideas on eliminating/contolling lilly pads in a lake?
Thanks.

Can they be sprayed with an aquatic approved herbicide like rodeo?? That may work.

hey look here I have the same problem but I sprayed them with a product called Remuda I got it at my local ACE hardware. I have a 25 gallon spray tank and sprayed my cypress brake. so far everything ive sprayed has been demolished. I used a higher content to make sure it would kill it. Im sure after it dies and winter comes along it will kill off any remaining lilly pads. What my plan is to do is as soon as season gets close ima take my go devil and run through the died pads that don't sink and clear any remaining out. ive sprayed a lot of differnent holes. make sure not to spray your duck food. if its real windy be careful and if its real sunny and hot I believe it helps even more

What time of the year did you spray? Were the pads going pretty good?

Add 1 quart of surfactant to that 25 gal sprayer, on one of those hot sunny days. Helps the chemical to stick to the leaves.

Dont spray in the heat of summer., All that decaying plant matter can suck up the oxygen and cause a fish kill in your pond

they are covering up the pond really thick man. I never added any surfactant to mine and everywhere i sprayed died but that is probably the best thing to do. I sprayed mine about two weeks ago

also in the case about the decaying plants what i am doin and have done is spray different areas of the pond. Our cypress pond is huge though.that way i can go back if i missed anything and its not a ton of decaying plants
