Tragic Reminder, Invasive Aquatic Weeds Can Kill

A number of people die each year tangled in the massive weed beds these plants produce.  In one case recently in Lake Minnetonka, Minnesota a young man died tangled in these weeds trying to retrieve a soccer ball.  Not only did he drown, the authorities could not find his body in the thick weed growth for a number of days and they knew where he went down.  These plants are a danger and this needs to be factored into the thinking when control efforts are considered.  The link below will take you to an article on this event.  Please take a minute to review the video clip that goes with the story as well.  One picture is worth a thousand words.
