Weed and Algae Control

Weed Treatment Herbicide Treatment Algae Treatment

Herbicides and algaecides have their place in lake and pond management; however they need to be used cautiously.  There are many species of plants and algae, each requiring specific products and concentrations for proper control.  Services include a professional examination of the site by a degreed biologist to determine the type and extent of the problem vegetation.  We work closely with government agency personnel and manufacturers to remain up-to-date on regulations and current technology.  We obtain permits, apply the product, and provide follow-up visitations where necessary.  Following each weed and/or algae treatment, customers will receive a treatment record highlighting products used, application rates, and use restrictions.
