/ Posts / The Battle Against Eurasian Watermilfoil in Northern Wisconsin Lakes
Eurasian Watermilfoil (EWM) is an invasive aquatic plant species that has been a growing issue in many of our Northwoods lakes and is especially noticeable on the Minocqua Chain of Lakes.
EWM spreads quickly, forming thick patches in shallow parts of the lake, blocking sunlight and killing off native aquatic plants that many underwater species rely on for food and shelter.
Aquatic Plant Management (APM) is a locally owned business out of Minocqua Wisconsin that is taking on the Eurasian Watermilfoil battle in a big way by teaming up with our property owners and lake associations providing services to "Reclaim your Shoreline."
Fighting the good fight against EWM is not the only service they offer, we hired them to help a seller clean up their shoreline after years of decaying leaves made it look mucky and the results were incredible!
We applaud the work APM is doing to maintain the integrity of our area lakes!
