Bladderwort is usually found in quiet, shallow, boglike acidic waters. The main stem has 410 delicately branched lateral leaves that give it a very lacy appearance. The main part of the weed lies beneath the surface and will go unnoticed until it rises to the surface in the late Spring early Summer. Once at the water surface the weed sends up small attractive yellow flower. This flower has liplike petals that resemble Snapdragons. Bladderwort is named for its tiny bladderlike structures located throughout its branched underwater leaves. These bladderlike vacuum traps catch tiny aquatic animals (protozoa, water fleas & mosquito larvae) by sucking the prey into the bladders. Bladderwort reproduces from small round buds (turions) that form at the weed tip in the fall. Control methods: 1) Hand pulling, weed raking or weed cutting. 2) Stocking with grass carp to consume Bladderwort. For best results, apply 715 grass carp per surface acre depending on the quantity of Bladderwort. Results seldom appear until the second season. 3) WeedtrineD Liquid is a fastacting, diquat based, aquatic herbicide that will quickly kill the foliage it touches. This option can be used for spot treatment or treatment of the entire pond. 4) Aquacide Pellets and Restore/Sonar are aquatic weed killers that will affect the entire weed. These systemic options are best applied early spring as new submersed weeds begin to appear and are still on the bottom. Aquacide Pellets are a 2,4D based option that can be used for spot treatment or treatment of the entire pond. Restore/Sonar is a fluridone based option that must be applied to the entire pond or a minimum of 5 acres, and is not recommended for spot treatment.
