Invasive Weed Control


Invasive submerged and emergent vegetation can cause some real havoc in aquatic ecosystems. Plants which are considered invasive have the capability to reproduce very quickly which takes away the chance for healthy native vegetation to move in. Invasive vegetation can spread throughout an entire water body in a very short amount of time, causing numerous health concerns for the water.


Two of the most commonly seen invasive weed species in the Northern Illinois and Chicagoland territory are Eurasian Water milfoil and Curlyleaf Pondweed. Both weeds have the capability to rapidly populate water bodies, forcing out native plants and decreasing the overall biodiversity within the aquatic ecosystem.
