Water Weed Control 6 Tips for the Upcoming Season

Published by Tom Markoe on November 06, 2013 0 Comments

Before you know it, summer will be here and you'll want to be making the most of your waterfront.  Here are 6 things you can do to get prepared.

Water Weed Control

  1. Remove dead vegetation from the beachfront. Dead Cattails, Reeds, and if possible, even the dormant underwater weeds within reach.

  2. With the foliage cleared away, you will likely find you have a lot of “muck” and dead vegetation that is in the water.  Try and rake it on a regular basis if possible.  Ideally we would recommend once or twice a week.  (We also carry a pellet to help speed up this process.)

  3. The next step, if possible, is to identify the weeds and algae remnant from last season to help prepare for the upcoming season and narrow the options of possible herbicide treatment.  See the "Weed Info" page for great pictures and descriptions of many of the more common and invasive lake weeds and algae.

  4. Discuss with your neighbors possible game plans for the the upcoming season season.  There are multiple options; including physical removal and or mechanical cutting of the growth, biological control such as grass eating carp, water draw down, or the use of an aquatic weed killer. Now is the time to come up with a plan.

  5. Contact us with any questions that come up in the process of your preparation for Summer.  Remember, its just around the corner.

  6. Once you have come up with a game plan for the season, you may want to contact your local county extension service, as most public bodies of water will require an application permit for use of some of the products.

Please feel free to email me or post questions you may have and I will respond accordingly.
