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.
