    apple cider vinegar undiluted. you may have to spray it 2 or 3 times and this will also help with aquatic weeds. ok, that will be 5 bucks. need your credit card #..lol..

    Diquat is labeled for aquatic weed control and also non selective weed control on land so will kill the weeds on the beach and not harm the lake should any run off into the water. Also Rodeo is Glyphosphate (Round up) with a different inert ingredient so is not harmful to fish so is labeled for use around bodies of water.

    glyphosate is still a sythetic chemical and harms the biological breakdown. not apple cider and vinegar. Go to the grocery and say I want some apple cider vinegar and they will know what you are talking about

    There's a reason Diquat (Reward) and Rodeo (Aquamaster) are labeled for bodies of water. You could do what you're wanting to do with either or both products and with minimal risk. Follow the label directions.....
