Foster Lake & Pond Management

Aquatic Vegetation Management Control In The Raleigh, Charlotte, Greensboro, North Carolina - NC & Surrounding Areas of South Carolina - SC

 

Foster Lake & Pond - Unwanted aquatic vegetation is one of the most troublesome pond problems in the Raleigh, Charlotte, Greensboro, North Carolina - NC & Surrounding Areas of South Carolina - SC. Control methods include: biological (fish that eat plants); chemical treatment (aquatic algaecides and herbicides), cultural (beneficial plantings) and mechanical (pulling, cutting and raking). Biological control is usually the recommended long-term solution in the Raleigh, Charlotte, Greensboro, North Carolina - NC & Surrounding Areas of South Carolina - SC. Sterile grass carp can be extremely effective but require time. Pond treatments may be quick, but require care. The type of vegetation must be identified correctly. Treatments must be mixed and applied properly.

 

Often special equipment is necessary for effective chemical application. Improper use of treatment products may kill many fish. We are licensed applicators of aquatic herbicides and pesticides in the Raleigh, Charlotte, Greensboro, North Carolina - NC & Surrounding Areas of South Carolina - SC. New aquatic herbicides are available which are effective, relatively long-lasting, and safe. We often spray nuisance aquatic vegetation for immediate control, apply a colorant to limit light penetration or a probiotic enzyme/bacteria product to inhibit new growth, and then stock sterile grass carp for long-term control.
