I have a small 1/4 acre pond that is being taken over by curly-leaf pondweed. This is the first time in 10 years I've seen this weed but it's spreading fast. We have three grass carp in the pond but they don't seem to be eating it.

Is there any way to control it without chemicals?

My curly leaf pondweed was almost completely eliminated after introducing papershell crayfish, but I am not sure where to source them anymore. It is impossible to rule out some other factor in the weed control, but I do not know what other factor could have been responsible.

Drogo, a low dose of Sonar AS (Fluridone) will kill it and won't harm any other plants in the pond (with the exception of Eurasian Watermilfoil).

Sonar AS is $250 for just 8 oz.....pretty much out of my price range. Especially if it doesn't work in one application.

And I found a place that sells papershell crayfish....in upstate NY. But they only deliver in NY. So being in Indiana.....

Guess I'll be out there manually pulling it out.

maybe some of the other brands of fluridone are a little less? Look up wipeout.
