Exotic Plant Control

Exotic Plant Control

Successful management of invasive and nuisance aquatic species.

Millions of dollars are spent every year managing invasive aquatic species. If you suspect a nuisance plant in your waterway, then it’s imperative to start a vegetation management program immediately.

Contact AAM and stop these nuisance plants before they cause further damage.

Plant species such as Duckweed, Hydrilla, Brazilian Pepper or Eurasian Watermilfoil are aggressive and can cause considerable damage to the aquatic environment. From detrimental changes in oxygen levels to decreasing the existence of healthy plants or even causing fish kills, exotic species must be eradicated.

AAM provides extensive exotic species control in natural areas to state, local and federal government as well as individuals, consultants and industry.
