Milfoil is a frustrating aquatic invasive species. It grows quickly, grows new plants from fragments, outcompetes native plants and turns lakes into swampy areas. It’s bad for the ecology and biology of the lake, but it’s also bad for boating, swimming and fishing.

Its leaves are feather-like with 12 or more thin segments (native milfoil has 11 or fewer leaf segments). Eurasian watermilfoil is most commonly found in water m deep (~ ft) in lakes, rivers, and ponds, but can occur at depths up to 10 m (~33 ft).

Eurasian watermilfoil is the most widely managed aquatic invasive plant in the United States. Recently in Minnesota, it has started hybridizing with native Northern watermilfoil, resulting in a new hybrid watermilfoil.

This is of concern due to reports of increased invasiveness, greater success, and evidence of herbicide resistance of the hybrid.

We assessed the accuracy of a model that predicts the probability of colonization of lakes in Wisconsin by Eurasian watermilfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum). We based this predictive model on 9 years (–) of sequence data of milfoil colonization of lakes larger than 25 ha (n = ). Eurasian water-milfoil has less value as a food source for waterfowl than the native plants it replaces.

And although fish may initially experience a favorable edge effect, the characteristics of Eurasian water-milfoil's overabundant growth negate any short-term benefits it may provide fish in healthy waters.

(Eurasian watermilfoil) into Lake George, New York, U.S.A. was first noted in Ina few newly established plants were allowed to grow unimpeded by human management to document the rate of colonization of this species into a new habitat with its ultimate dominance over, and systematic.

Biology. Eurasian watermilfoil occurs in ponds, lakes, and pools that vary from rather deep to very shallow (from more than m to a few cm), and may be stagnant or slowly moving fresh to slightly brackish water (Spencer and Lekic, ).

Plants overwinter rooted in the sediment and grow rapidly once favorable temperatures are reached. We tested the effectiveness of milfoil weevils (Euhrychiopsis lecontei) for reducing biomass of Eurasian watermilfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum, EWM) under natural lake conditions in a 3-year field experiment.

In each of four lakes, we randomly chose two EWM beds for stocking and two beds as controls. A total of ca. 40, weevils were added to the eight stocked beds. Eurasian Water-milfoil is an indicator of eutropic (low dissolved oxygen levels coupled with high organic matter) conditions (Parkinson et al.

It grows well in hard, alkaline waters. It also grows well in salinity levels up to 10 parts per thousand (ppt) and.
