Catt Plex is completely safe for people, pets, livestock, fish, birds, irrigation, consumption, and swimming. It is recommended to follow the label instructions prior to applying. You will NOT want to treat the entire pond at once because this will cause oxygen depletion and may kill the aquatic life. Treat 1/2 of the pond and wait two weeks and then treat the remainder.
Catt Plex should be sprayed as a broadcast or spot treatment for aquatic weeds in accordance with the product label. Catt Plex will not control submerged weeds; you will usually need a differenct active ingredient for submerged weeds. If you have identified the specific plants that you are targeting, then we would be happy to make a recommendation for you.
The Catt Plex label mentions using a surfactant, what is a surfactant?
Surfactants are "sticking agents" that help herbicides stick to the target weeds. Using a surfactant will help with better coverage and faster burndown. The Catt Plexlabel recommends using a non-ionic surfactant such as Southern Ag Non-Ionic Surfactant.
