Watermeal is a challenge to control, and can easily double in area in days. It is the single smallest plant worldwide, making it difficult for the plant to uptake enough herbicide to be effective. It has a thick cuticle on both sides of the plant and shows no visible roots. It looks like a green cornmeal or grits and can quickly infest a pond.
An effective means of ridding your pond of pesky watermeal is to use our PONDRestore® Watermeal kit. This complete kit includes: Clipper Herbicide, Mizzen® Algaecide, Nutrient Reducer SparKlear® and also Sapphire Bay® Blue Pond Dye. You can easily control floating weeds or submerged weeds, reduce the phosphorus and other nutrients and eliminate algae.
Clipper delivers a rapid control of floating and submerged weeds such as watermeal, duck weed, water milfoil and pond weeds. It dissipates quickly from the water column giving minimal restrictions for irrigation. It is easy to use and you will see great results within 7-14 days! Clipper is also available in one pound or 5 pound containers.
Mizzen® Algaecide easily controls filamentous algae and effectively manages planktonic algae. It is a liquid, chelated copper based algaecide that is concentrated. It is easily applied and has zero restrictions for swimming, fishing and irrigation.
The PONDRestore® Watermeal kit also includes a nutrient reducer and a pond dye. SparKlear® reduces the nutrients that enable weed and algae growth. Using a pond dye not only adds a natural looking color to your pond, small lake or water feature, but it will also help block out specific light rays that will deter weed and algae growth.
Our PONDRestore® Watermeal kits are available in two convenient sizes starting at $295. Get the best option for controlling Watermeal and be on your way to a beautiful, clear and healthy pond!
