Watermilfoil (Myriophyllum) is an aquatic plant, different species of which can be found throughout the world. The most common ones in the U.S. are the native Northern Milfoil and the highly invasive Eurasian Milfoil (Eurasian Milfoil has 12-21 pairs of leaflets per leaf, and Northern Milfoil only has 7-11). Water milfoil can quickly become a problem because it spreads rapidly forming mats of vegetation on the water surface. These mats interfere with recreational activities such as swimming, fishing, water skiing, and boating. The stagnant mats can create good habitat for mosquitoes. Milfoil mats can rob oxygen from the water by preventing the wind from mixing the oxygenated surface waters to deeper water and can also increase the sedimentation rate by trapping sediments. Extensive milfoil growth on lakes can quickly make the lake unusable for recreational water activities, alter aquatic ecosystems, and reduce property values around the lake.
