Aquatic Weed Control
Florida has over 7700 lakes, ponds, waterways and an abundance of invasive aquatic weed species. Proper waterway management is critical to keeping Florida water clean and healthy.
Uncontrolled weeds in aquatic areas can block water channels to inhibit irrigation and boat traffic and cause silt buildup, obstruct sight lines and become breeding grounds for insects.
Our experienced aquatic weed control and algae control professionals are the difference between lakes and waterways that are healthy and beneficial to the environment. We offer outstanding control of invasive and noxious weeds and brush on roadsides, rights-of-way, ditchbanks, aquatic sites, as well as pastures and along fece rows.
Learning to identify problem aquatic weeds is the all important first step. Once identified, the proper measures can be taken to initiate sound management and control. Here are some of the more common pond weeds found in Texas and how you can control them.
We have experience in managing all types of bodies of water which allows us to develop programs that produce great looking bodies of water that benefit your local ecosystem and wildlife.
What sets us apart from our competition is our concern for our customers, and even though our programs have been successful for many years, we always customize our treatment plan for every lake and every community. We also work closely with representatives of herbicide manufacturers and suppliers to insure that we are knowledgeable about any new technology that becomes available, that we are compliant with governmental regulations, and that we can implement the best and most appropriate technologies.
How do some aquatic plants cause problems?
They create large groups of a single kind of plant that are not good habitats for fist and other animals. They can also block out the sunlight from submersed natural plants and can entangle boat propellers and swimmers.
Invasive aquatic plants can also increase flooding by blocking waterways during a storm and provide breeding grounds for insects like mosquitos.
How can you control aquatic weeds?
We use a three tiered approach integrating prevention, mechanical harvesting and chemical control to help bring your natural waterways, lakes and ponds back into balance with your local ecosystem.
Our aquatic weed control programs integrate all aspects of lake management, including herbicide applications, biological controls, nutrient limitation, aeration, littoral planting and fish stocking. We utilize the most appropriate technologies that will result in the most beautiful lakes with the least harmful impact on the environment.
We take a proactive approach to lake management, and we plan for early and frequent treatments in order to insure that major problems are forestalled; resulting in better control with less impact on the environment. With Florida Aquatic Weed Control, you can be assured that your lakes will be a real asset to your community, and you can be confident in knowing that we use the best, safest approved aquatic herbicides and methods.
