As with most invasive plants, once milfoil establishes, it is almost impossible to eliminate. Prevention is the best way to stop its spread.
You can help prevent the spread of Eurasian Water Milfoil by being very careful not to transport pieces of milfoil from one water body to another and by reporting new sightings in non-infested lakes. Milfoil can stay alive for weeks if they remain wet and removal before entering another water body is necessary to help prevent the spread of this invasive plant.
Before entering the water, inspect and clean your boat, trailer, float tubes and other watercraft.
Learn to identify Eurasian watermilfoil, where it is known to occur and then take all appropriate measures to prevent its spread to other locations.
