Duckweed Control

here are two types of duckweed control mechanism-chemical control and non-chemical control.

  1. Temperature- It’s important to know what is the right time for killing duckweed. We suggest that you start duckweed infestation during early spring, this is the time water temperatures rise and dormant duckweed plants, that settles down at the bottom of the pond start floating to the surface and begin to multiply.
  2. Eliminate Duckweed and Watermeal – Spray the Duckweed or Watermeal with on fast acting harvester liquid or long term treatment fluridone.
  3. Repeat the procedure- It’s important to follow-up the procedure again after two weeks. Without proper follow-ups, these hostile plants might regrow and there could be few plants that you may have missed on the first treatment.

Non-chemical or Manual Duckweed and Water Meal Management

You must have observed that duckweed and water meal reproduce rapidly hence non-chemical treatment isn’t very effective. Usually people often get floating fountains and bottom aeration systems installed in their pond to get rid of Duckweed and Watermeal, but this solution does not provide much respite.

Installation of one or more floating fountains or a bottom aeration systems generate sluggish waves on the surface of the pond that discourage the growth of duckweed and water meal, only to an extent. This approach is generally used for water meal control due to variation in their plant sizes.

Manual removal. This is perhaps the most time-consuming and taxing job. Most people often use a skimmer to deeply scan the surface of the pond. The skimmer will help you pull the duckweed from the surface.
