Eradication of Eurasian Milfoil

Waterfowl—Eurasian watermilfoil can be a key resource for waterfowl in the Tennessee Valley, not because of it’s nutritional value, but mainly because of its abundance. Eurasian watermilfoil has been associated with avian vacuolar myelinopathy (AVM) in other areas, which can negatively impact water birds and predatory birds like eagles.

Fall—Eurasian watermilfoil will begin to exhibit some browning, even in late summer. But the plants will persist well though the fall. Milfoil is the perfect opportunity for frog fishing as the canopy will easily hold up the bait, but the understory is open enough for a bass to key in on the target.

Spring—A classic target for many anglers, Eurasian watermilfoil will be one of the first plants to sprout and grow from existing structures in the early part of spring. Find the deep water edge where this plant often grows, and work a Carolina rig or big jig around clumps of newly growing plants.

Eurasian Water Milfoil - ANS Task Force

: Plants of Eurasian watermilfoil are rooted and submersed except for a short (3 to 8 cm) emmersed flowering spike. Primary stems are generally branched and often form a dense canopy on the water’s surface. Leaves are whorled, 4 or rarely 5 leaves per node, each leaf pinnately dissected into narrow, linear segments. The number of pairs of leaf segments is highly variable, ranging from 5 to 24 for each leaf. Leaves cling to the stem above each node when removed from the water. Turions are absent. The flowers are whorled and in spikes with the pistillate flowers at the lower nodes of the spike and staminate flowers at the upper nodes. The stem below the flowering spike is curved to lie parallel with the water surface and is about twice the diameter of the lower stem. Floral bracts subtending the pistillate flowers are equal or slightly longer than the flowers. The following set of characters are used by Aiken (1981) in distinguishing Eurasian watermilfoil from northern watermilfoil: Eurasian water milfloil's stems are thickened below the inflorescence to almost double the width of the lower stems and usually curved to lie parallel with the water surface. Eurasian water milfoil has 2-3 distinct black scales at the inflorescence nodes. Eurasian water milfoil plants never form turions (young shoots budding from underground stems). In contrast, northern water milfoil Stems are not thickened below the inflorescence. They are straight and have 0-2 black or brown, indistinct scales at the inflorescence nodes. Northern water milfoil plants form turions of black green leaves from October to June.

Eurasian Watermilfoil : Adirondack Park Invasive Plant …

Some exotic species of milfoil are very aggressive, displacing native species. Eurasian milfoil is an exotic invasive submersed perennial. It reproduces both vegetatively and, less commonly, sexually (seeds). Rhizome division, budding and fragmentation are examples of vegetative reproduction. A single piece of fragmented Eurasian milfoil can multiply into 250 million new plants in one year!
