Aquatic Spray Equipment
Air Boats – Used in areas that conventional propeller driven craft are unable to navigate and are equipped with two long throw-type spray guns, booms, and sub-surface extrusion tubes. Target pests include giant salvinia, water hyacinth, alligator weed, and water lettuce.
High Volume Spray Trucks – Used to spray ditch banks, shorelines, boat landings, and piers to target pests including cattails, water hyacinth and duck weed.
Log Skidder – Used in wetland areas that most conventional water craft are unable to reach. All are four-wheel drive and are mounted with spray booms, spray guns, and RADIARC® sprayers. Target pests are willow trees, cattails, ceana bean trees and salt cedar.
Flat Bottom Boats with Propeller Driven-Engines – Used where the target vegetation will not impede propeller-driven equipment and can apply above the surface type herbicides via spray guns, broadcast pellets and sub-surface extrusion tubes. Target pests include pondweed, coontail, hydrilla, and watermilfoil.
