I've been working on a couple of small patches in Keego Harbor in Oakland County with hand removal, with the results of the Lake Minnetonka study in mind, which indicates that really meticulous hand removal can be very effective.
In September 2016 I recorded that I removed 5 large heavy bags from a particular site that also has cattail and other emergent plants. I used a spading fork to loosen the soil. There were a lot of floating bulbils to capture, including old 'nests' of brown ones, and I used a kitchen sieve or colander to capture them. For the same site in 2017 I removed only 1 large bag. However, I did the 2017 work in mid-July. It appeared to me that in mid-July, the viable old bubils had pretty much all sprouted, making them visible and identifiable, but the new bulbils were still small and rather firmly attached to the plants. This resulted in very few floaters to be chased down, reducing the odds of spreading it. For my practice sites I was really really meticulous about finding every plant, both new and old in 2017. Follow-up visits later in the summer did not reveal any more plants at those sites.
I'm looking forward to evaluating the results of that effort over the next few weeks.
