WhiteCap Aquatic Lake and Pond Herbicide

WhiteCap Aquatic Herbicide is a 41.7% fluridone based aquatic herbicide that effectively kills most lake and pond weeds. It is very safe and simple to use, lasts all season long, and is our best selling and overall most favorite herbicide. The fluridone in white cap does not immediately kill the weeds upon application, but rather starves the plants and keeps them from growing by interrupting their process of photosynthesis!

We use White Cap at varying doses to effectively control the following types of aquatic vegetation: duckweed, watermeal, cattails, eurasian watermilfoil, water lillies, american lotus, and most other pondweeds.

Application Tips:

White Cap is not a contact herbicide and should not be sprayed directly onto the vegetation. It is rather a whole lake treatment that needs to be diluted into the entire water column. The easiest and best way to apply white cap is to pour approximately 8 oz of white cap into a 5 gallon bucket of water and simply pour the mixture across your lake or pond. It works best if applied early in the growing season.

Application Rates:
  • Watermeal - 90 ppb or typically 1 quart per acre
  • Duckweed - 75 ppb or typically 24 oz per acre
  • Cattails - 75 ppb or typically 24 oz per acre
  • Water Lilly - 75 ppb or typically 24 oz per acre
  • Eurasian Watermilfoil - 50 ppb or typically 1 pint per acre
  • Curly Leaf Pond Weed - 50 ppb or typically 1 pint per acre

Water Use Restrictions:

WhiteCap is very safe for fish, fishing, animals, and swimming, even the same day of application. The only water use restriction it has is that irrigating is not recommended for 21-45 days following application. The fluridone could kill your plants if you use enough of the water for irrigating!

White Cap can be purchased in 8 oz bottles, pints, quarts, and gallons at Herman Brothers Pond Managements Online Store
It can also be purchased from our Ebay Store
