Preventing unsightly and unhealthy algae and weed growth

The warm summer season is a terrific time for trees, flowers, and plants to grow healthy and strong. Unfortunately, it also aids in the rapid growth of algae and weeds, both on land and in our ponds, lakes, and waterways.

When left untreated, these aquatic areas can be quickly overwhelmed by invasive algae and weeds, which ultimately interferes with water flow, lowers dissolved oxygen, harms fish and other wildlife, and can greatly disrupt boat traffic. High nutrient levels in these bodies of water further exacerbates the problem.

In order to combat these problems, effective aquatic weed management measures should be undertaken and conscientiously adhered to regularly. Companies that have specially licensed and trained aquatic biologists on staff that employ all the latest and most effective means of treatment can greatly assist in preventing unsightly and unhealthy algae and weed growth in the future.

Without causing any harm to fish, desirable weed species, or wildlife, companies that specialize in this field implement very specialized equipment, using the most superior quality materials while employing innovative techniques to ensure the job is done completely and thoroughly. Done correctly, existing problems will be cured, usually within one to three months, and will keep treated areas in excellent condition year-round.

If you are interested in learning more about companies that provide these services, thorough research online should be the first step you take. You most definitely want to find a company that will provide a free aquatic survey, which involves a free aquatic inspection, report and water management proposal.

If you find a company that looks promising, but doesn’t have service in your area, the best companies in the industry will still be of help to you if you enlist their services. They can help you or your organization in maintaining lakes or ponds with their very own user-friendly, easy to use apply products. Once you provide them with such data as lake or pond size, depth, weeds, and water quality, they can then make recommendations regarding your specific situation.
