How to get rid of pesky watermeal

July 27, 2018

Does a watermeal invasion have your pond gasping for air? Watermeal control can be difficult because it is such a small plant and can double the area it covers in two days. 

Watermeal is a light green, strawberry seed sized plant that floats on the surface of the water. When it rains, watermeal will sink under the surface, but rise back up after the rain. If the wind is strong, it will blow to one side of your pond.

It will create a dense mat across the whole pond and deplete the oxygen levels which causes poor pond health. This can kill off any fish you have and encourage the growth of unwanted weeds and algae. Another reason watermeal can be so hard to eliminate is because watermeal can be brought back into your pond by wildlife and waterfowl.

By using a pond products for watermeal, you can eliminate watermeal quickly and increase the overall health of your pond which has most likely been decreased by the presence of watermeal. In just a few simple steps you can be on your way to a beautiful, clear pond in no time.

Step 1: Clipper HerbicideUse

Step 2: Mizzen®

Step 3: SparKlear®

Step 4: Sapphire Bay® Pond Dye

Dying your pond with Sapphire Bay will introduce a blue tint to the water. You can apply it to achieve your desired color.

Step 5: Enjoy Your Pond

After these steps, you can sit back and enjoy the beauty of your pond! The algaecide and herbicide will start working immediately, and in a week or so, your pond will begin to clear. The other products will help limit regrowth and improve the looks of the pond. You may have to treat a few times per season if the watermeal does come back again.
