Why is it important to control aquatic weeds?
An abundant reproduction of the aquatic plants in your lake or pond can have a harmful effect on its inhabitants. Undesirable aquatic plants disturb the vital balance of nutrients and oxygen in the water body and can wreak havoc on outside activities.
Some of the troubles which come with neglecting proper aquatic weed control:
It can hamper the recreational activities at the water source such as fishing, water sports, boating and swimming. It makes the waterfront look unattractive. It makes a good habitat for mosquito breeding. It can give a foul taste and smell to the water source. Aquatic weeds can hamper water flow across drainage systems.
Some of our products which can help you with aquatic weeds:
