Habitat® Aqua provides effective, long-lasting, post-emergent
control of invasive and undesirable vegetation in and around aquatic
sites. Habitat Aqua may be used in directed applications for control of
invasive plants in naturalized areas, including privately owned,
provincial, federal or other public lands and parks.
How It Works
Aqua is readily absorbed through foliage and rapidly translocated
throughout the plant. Treated plants stop growing shortly after an
application. Chlorosis appears first in the newest leaves, and necrosis
spreads from this point.
perennials, Habitat Aqua translocates into underground or submerged
storage organs to control weeds and prevent regrowth. Chlorosis and
tissue necrosis may not be apparent until the season following an

emergent foliage of the target vegetation, using care to avoid
over-application or run-off that might result in an inadvertent
application directly to water. Habitat Aqua does not control plants that
are completely submerged or have a majority of foliage under water.
The application of Habitat Aqua requires Aquasurf®
non-ionic spray adjuvant or another non-ionic surfactant. When making
aquatic applications, these applications must be made with Aquasurf.
