Spritflo® V.S. Dibrox® for Pond Weed Control

April 17, 2018

Spritflo® V.S. Dibrox® for Pond Weed Control

If you have a pond or small lake, chances are you’ve had to deal with some kind of weed or algae problems from year to year. It might be difficult to figure out which aquatic herbicide is best for you, your weeds, and your pond’s needs.

At Lake Restoration, we have two great options for treating ponds and small lakes for weeds (you can check out all of our pond products on our website). Spritflo® herbicide and Dibrox® herbicide will be your best options for fighting submerged and floating weeds in your pond all year long. How do you decide which one is best for you? Here is more information on both our products to help you make the best decision for your pond.

Spritflo® 101:
Spritflo® is a suspended aquatic herbicide that is fluridone-based. This herbicide is best for duckweed and other submerged weeds, like hydrilla, coontail, and more.

Control Time:

Spritflo® will work in your water for 30-45 days. We usually recommend two treatments per season when the weeds are present and actively growing at or near the surface.

Application:

Spritflo® can be mixed with water and sprayed on the pond. It can also just be poured in the water around the pond, and it will spread through the water by itself within 24 hours. Spritflo® is not a contact herbicide, so it cannot be used to spot treat an area of a larger body of water. You will need to treat all of your water with this product.

Recap: Spritflo® is great for those wanting to treat their whole body of water. It is easy to apply, since you can simply pour it in the water and it will spread by itself. It stays suspended in the water for up to 45 days for longer control.

Dibrox 101:

Dibrox® herbicide is also a great herbicide for submerged and floating weeds, like duckweed, coontail, hydrilla and mifoil.

Control Time:

It controls duckweed in 5-7 days, and submerged weeds in 17-21 days for quick control. We usually recommend using this every 4-6 weeks, or when you see the weeds present and actively growing at or near the surface.

Application:

Dibrox® is a contact herbicide, which means it works directly where it is applied. You can mix Dibrox® with water and spray it over the weeds where you want to treat. This product also works great in our remote control product application boat, the TORMADA®! Dibrox® will sink down under the water to control submerged weeds. You can treat your whole body of water, or you can spot treat smaller sections of weeds.

Recap: Dibrox® is great for anyone looking for quicker control of weeds. It also great for people who don’t want to treat their whole body of water, but only parts of the water or sections of weeds.

Finding a pond herbicide can be difficult. Knowing the kind of control you want can help you narrow down a product that will work great for you. Now that you know a little more about our herbicides, you can be one step closer to controlling your pond weeds all season long.

TORMADA® Applicator Boat

June 19, 2015

We recently came out with a new product application tool for treating weeds and algae. The TORMADA® is an unmanned, lightweight boat that is driven by remote control. The TORMADA™ has a range of up to 1,000 feet, can go in forward or reverse, and can be operated from the shoreline. It can be used for lake weed control and pond weed control.The TORMADA® is easy to use and lots of fun to operate. All you have to do is plug in the battery pack, pour the liquid, and drive. Using a hand-held remote, you can control the speed and direction of the boat, easily navigating your way around a pond or lake. As you drive it around, the TORMADA® will automatically disperse the products until it is empty.

By using the TORMADA®, the difficulties of using a pond sprayer are eliminated. Areas that once were hard for you to reach with a sprayer will now be easily treated right from the shore. The boat removes the necessity of diluting all products except Fluridone, making your task one step shorter. Also, you have less exposure to products than when treating with a sprayer.

The TORMADA® can easily dispense liquid products. The tank capacity is one gallon and the valve on the back of the boat can be adjusted to restrict or increase the flow of the product into the water.

With the TORMADA®, you can use individual products, one of our PONDRestore® kit products to control pond weeds and algae, or our RestoreAccess® kit to keep your dock and swimming areas free from weeds and algae. Each kit contains Dibrox™ herbicide, Mizzen® algaecide, and other products to promote pond and lake health.

Try the new, fun tool for treating your pond or dock area! For more information on the TORMADA® view our product videos at TORMADA.com or call us.
