Nope, but I did eventually get rid of mine by constant netting. To help get
rid of the hiding pieces ( around filters and such) get a pump up sprayer.
These work great if you keep terrariums to mist them, and also to water
plants. Anyways, crank the nozzle to stream. Spray under the rim, around
filters and all that. It should rinse all the hidden pieces onto the surface
of the water. After letting it settle, slowly skim the surface with the net.
Do this regularly for a couple weeks, probably atleast every three days. You
should get it all then. If you have a lot of other plants poking out of the
surface, then you have to submerge them. I used egg crate, even on water
lettuce and hyacinth.
