Status of the weeds

I surveyed the weed situation in most of the lake on Monday, July 1. I found predominately Sago Pondweed near the shoreline in the shallow waters. It seemed to be absent in deeper water. The plants were most abundant near the mouth of Osburn Creek which was not treated last year. Sago pondweed was present early in the summer last year before our treatment. Elodea would be the next plant to show in the middle of the summer, but very, very little of it was seen. Coontail, grows later in the summer and has been seen in a few places. I don’t believe that any of these plants will be numberous enough to warrent any chemical treatment this summer. If any of these plants become an issue for you around your docks, please give me a call.
