Re: Herbicides

Hydrilla produces tubers several inches down in the mud. I wonder how effective herbicides, or draw-downs for that matter, are at killing these tubers. I have a feeling that Hydrilla is going to be really hard to get rid of. it is going to be like eradicating duckweed from your tank. You have to get every last bit, and now the "tank" covers an acre or so.

My solution is to spread the word that Hydrilla is a great aphrodesiac, even more potent than tiger parts, viagra, or bear gall bladders and then stand back and let the market forces operate. If interest starts to flag, release new stories about prodigious achievemants of heavy Hydrilla users.
