Spraying cattails question

    I have a small pond, just a little over an acre. The cattails along the bank have spread and there are more than we would like to have. I saw some liquid spray that should take care of them in my Jones fish farm magazine. I wanted to get others' recommendation on what chemical to use and if there is a better time of year than another to spray them?
  2. Straight roundup mixed with a surfactant will kill them. Cattail is very easy to kill and can be sprayed anytime while its still green.
