btw - as Greg indicated, HABITAT @ 1/2% solution + a MSO surfactant ~ topically applied only to infested areas, would be my suggestion. But, be careful when treating shoreline-areas (above the water-line) that are adjacent to desirable trees (i.e. their roots), since HABITAT is also soil-active and can be absorbed through root-uptake.
And don't waste your time spraying areas that were previously treated with WEEDTRINE D (or anything else for that matter), until the weeds have fully recovered and ARE HEALTHY & ACTIVELY GROWING. Systemic herbicides will generally work best (or ONLY) on healthy plants that are not stressed in any manner (i.e. by drought, bug-feeding damage, disease, etc).

There are a number of experts including pond management companies and fisheries who throw inflammatory words around about Diuron like carcinogen. I recocognize that the use sheets for Diuron do not include ponds and therefore it is not approved for ponds. That is in the USA. The use sheets in Canada specifically call out use on ponds. So there it is ok. A few years back MIssissippi got an exemption from the EPA to use it in catfish farm ponds where they raise the fish for consumption. Compare the Diuron Data Safety Sheets to Cutrine and see which is more dangerous. Except in CA (prop 64) neither chemical is listed as a carcinogen, both are in CA. The fish toxicity is a higher for Cutrine. So be cautious of scare tactics by those who don't know or those that have a vested interest in convincing you that you committed an awful health travesty.

But, here in the USA, the label is the law, and if a person were to use a herbicide not in accordance to the label that can land them in hot water, meaning potentially having legal issues to deal with. Call it what you will, but using a herbicide/pesticide not in accordance to the label will leave a person open to bigger problems than just weeds or bugs.
