The active ingredient, triclopyr, is designed to target just broad leafed plants including the invasive milfoil. The herbicide devastated the banded mysterysnail population, causing a die-off.

The Adirondack Council views the snail die-off as evidence that Renovate is far more damaging to animal life in general than believed by regulators. The snails, a common prey species for birds and larger fish, could be spreading the toxic agent throughout the ecosystems after they’re eaten.

Trawling for Trash in the Chesapeake Bay - Plastic detritus can be found throughout the Chesapeake Bay, especially in its underwater grasses. That’s a problem for several reasons. The bay’s underwater grasses, also known as submerged aquatic vegetation, represent a vital part of the estuary ecosystem (not to mention Maryland’s economy).
