Creature From the Green Lagoon

Creature From the Green Lagoon: Caddo Lake is being consumed by the world’s most monstrous weed. Herbicides, kitchen strainers, and even blowtorches have failed to stop it. Now a local band of volunteers is making a last-ditch effort to save these treasured wetlands. 

Long, but interesting.  And it has some great photos.

Hope the tide can be turned. Caddo Lake was a beautiful area. Thanks for calling attention to the struggle!

Really great photos. I thought it was going to be about water hyacinth, which is just as bad in some places. One thing I wondered is do the weevils eat up the plant entirely or just enough to kill it? Because if they leave dead matter, it will also sink to the bottom like the uneaten stuff.
