Habitat Herbicide controls undesirable
emergent, shoreline and woody wetland aquatic vegetation in and
around lakes, rivers, ponds, drainage ditches, canals, reservoirs,
terrestrial, marine, and seasonal wet areas.
Habitat Herbicide is specifically
developed for use in sensitive aquatic environments, the herbicide
helps stem the tide against the invasion of undesirable aquatic
plants and restore aquatic environments to their desirable
condition. Habitat Herbicide uses less active ingredient and
breaks down quickly, yet is highly effective.
Treated plants stop growing soon after
spray application. Necrosis (the death of living cells or tissues)
becomes evident about two weeks after treatment with Habitat
Herbicide. Plants stop growing in 1 - 3 days after treatment but
visual results (i.e. browning) will not occur until approximately 2
weeks after treatment. As weeds die they drop to the bottom and
decompose. Full breakdown can take weeks to months. Final death of
the treated weeds dependent on size, species treated and weather
conditions at application. Habitat provides a more effective root
kill when compared to alternative glysophate products.
Imazapyr is effective at low-volume
rates and does not contain heavy metals, organochlorides or
phosphates, making it safe to humans and livestock. Habitat
provides intelligent weed control by affecting specific enzymes
found only in plants - not in humans, animals, birds, fish or
The herbicide is absorbed through
leaves, stems and roots, translocating rapidly throughout the
plant, which causes the weed to stop growing and die as its
nutrient reserves are exhausted.
Habitat features a low amount of active ingredient and breaks
down quickly in the environment Habitat Herbicide requires the use
of a spray adjuvant when applying on post-emergent vegetation.
Habitat herbicide is applied using low volume spray techniques,
which results in more effective and efficacious control and often
reduces the need for multiple applications. Applicators must
carefully follow label guidelines in order to ensure effective
control of target weed species and reduce the possibility of any

*Consult Label for Exact Doses & Important Application
For best results, Habitat should be applied as early as possible
after weeds appear or when they are actively growing. Best results
occur when applied in spring and summer when waters are 55ºF or
above, less material is required and a longer weed free period will
result. Contact time with weeds should be at least 3 - 4 hours.
Habitat will not control submerged plants. As with glyphosate
products, follow-up applications may be needed once it can be
determined if any target plants were missed.
Extreme caution and planning should be
taken when applying Habitat herbicide. It is possible for Habitat
to kill adjacent trees and vegetation in the area applied and
sometimes downstream of the treated area.
*All pesticides can be harmful to health and the environment
if misused. Read the label and follow directions. Consult with your
local regulatory agency before applying herbicides and algaecides
to public waters. There are herbicides from other states that are
either not licensed in Wisconsin or Illinois, or are not
recommended by ABI.
A WI DNR Aquatic Plant Control Permit or
DATCP Fish Farm License is required in WI in order to apply
algaecides or herbicides. In addition ponds and lakes with
overflows not contained on the property are required to obtain a WPDES
permit. Illinois Residents are required to obtiain NPDES
permits through the Illinois EPA.
In order to apply chemicals in
liquid form within Wisconsin, the applicator must be licensed with
