HOW TO APPLY
Measure out required amount of Aquashade Plus into a pourable container or apply directly from the product container by pouring around shoreline water and/or in offshore areas from a boat. Aquashade Plus will mix throughout the water on its own, however, more widespread application or aeration devices/fountains will provide quicker dispersion. In freezing climates, Aquashade may be poured onto the ICE in a 3 foot (1 meter) diameter circle it will melt a hole and disperse underneath. (Be certain ice conditions are safe before making application.)
WHEN TO APPLY
For best results, apply Aquashade Plus as a pre-emergent (prior to plant germination) before the growing season. Aquashade Plus may even be applied directly onto ice cover, (where applicable). Use during the growing season will suppress the rate and extent of underwater growth, but may not eliminate it. Aquashade Plus has reduced effectiveness in waters less than 2 feet deep and on matured submersed aquatic plants. It does not control floating algae mats, free floating plants, or emergent (shoreline) vegetation. These plants can be physically removed or treated with an appropriate EPA registered aquatic herbicide or algaecide if more complete control is desired. When using algaecides or aquatic herbicides, always follow label restrictions, precautions and directions for use.
Allow at least one hour for Aquashade Plus to disperse throughout the water body before using water for swimming, irrigation or livestock watering or avoid pouring concentrate within 50 ft. of these intake/use areas, allowing dye to self-disperse into them.
