Controlling Duckweed, Milfoil, Watermeal and other aquatic weeds requires a time tested and proven herbicide with lasting results. WhiteCap gets to work quickly and efficiently by inhibiting the weed’s ability to produce carotene resulting in the degradation of chlorophyll. Without chlorophyll, weeds die while WhiteCap continues working and protecting for up to 2 seasons! WhiteCap controls and eliminates a broad range of weeds species with some weeds appearing “sick” after only days.
Tens of thousands of lakes, lagoons, reservoirs and other water areas have been successfully treated with Fluridone (the ingredients in WhiteCap) for over 20 years. WhiteCap SC Aquatic Herbicide is designed for the management of aquatic vegetation in fresh water ponds, lakes, reservoirs, potable water sources, drainage canals and irrigation canals. Powerful WhiteCap herbicide contains Fluridone (1-methyl-3-phenyl-5-[3-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]-4(1H)-pyridinone), the same active ingredient found in Sonar® and AVAST!®.
Once applied, WhiteCap is absorbed by shoots and roots where it travels systemically in the internal vascular system of aquatic weeds. Whitecap inhibits carotene synthesis causing chlorophyll to break down when the weeds are exposed to sunlight. New shoot growth will exhibit a pink or white coloration within 7-10 days of exposure to WhiteCap with long lasting capabilities making WhiteCap with Fluridone the herbicide of choice by many aquatic maintenance professionals. For complete weed control, contact with WhiteCap must be maintained for an extended period of time depending on the severity of the infestation. Also, if conditions exist that dilute the WhiteCap concentration in the water, effective control may not be achieved and additional application may be necessary. Consult the WhiteCap SC label for a list of specific weeds controlled by WhiteCap, application rates per treated area, preferred timing of application, ideal mixing instructions, and use restrictions for this product.
