A customer recently contacted us regarding weed & algae control. Below is the question and our response.
I have a ½-1 acre pond that is becoming infested with the “brushy” course type pond weed. The trouble is…I also have a large population of trout in it. Is there anything I can use that will eliminate those weeds without killing my trout?? A sincere thanks in advance…GG
We stock a large variety of pond weed control options. All of these aquatic herbicides, when applied according to label directions, will not harm fish including trout.
It is impossible to make a specific recommendation without knowing what your “brushy” course type pond weed is. For accurate pond weed identification, remove a clean damp sample from your pond, spread it out on a flat surface. Take a close-up digital photo and e-mail it to us at: Weeds@KillLakeWeeds.com, we would be happy to confirm the weed type and make a recommendation.
You can also place a clean damp weed sample inside a zip-lock baggie and mail it to us at:
PO Box 10748
White Bear Lake, MN 55110
Upon receipt we will confirm the weed type and respond promptly.
Please feel free to e-mail me or post questions you may have and I will respond accordingly.
