Can you remove lake weeds and muck in 24 hours?

June 19, 2018

Did you know there is a way to remove unwanted lake weeds and muck in as little as 24 hours? You can do this with help from the LAKEMAID® lake weed and muck removal system from Lake Restoration!

You won’t have to strain yourself by removing weeds by raking them with a traditional lake rake. All you need to do is install the LAKEMAID® lake rake where you want it to remove weeds and muck, then sit back and let it do the work for you!

How it works:

LAKEMAID® has two arms on floats, which are connected to a pump positioned on the lake bottom. The pump takes water in and pushes it through the arms. The water propels the arms forward, dragging the hanging chains and rakes across the bottom of your lake. As the rakes drag over the lake weeds and muck, it gently breaks them up. Since weeds are mostly made of water, the weed debris will not wash up on shore after they break up, they will simply disintegrate.

The rakes also expose the sand bottom of your lake from silt and muck. It makes about 3,000 rake passes per day. Once you’ve eliminated the weeds from one area, you can pick up the LAKEMAID® and move it to a different spot in your swim area and start the removal process there. Keep moving the LAKEMAID® until you’ve reached the desired results in your dock and swim area.  

Features:

The LAKEMAID® comes in two sizes, 24 and 36 foot units. It is easy to install, is remarkably lightweight, and can be done with just one person. It only takes about 15 minutes to install or to remove, making it easy to share or move to a different location.

24 foot unit

·         Covers 450 sq ft

·         Includes a 1 Horsepower pump

·         7 chain rakes

·         Finisher rakes (1, 6ft and 1, 3ft)

 

36 foot unit

·         Covers 1,010 sq ft

·         Includes a 1 HP pump

·         10 chain rakes

·         Finisher rakes (2, 6ft and 1, 3ft)

The LAKEMAID® can help you feel the sand beneath your feet in your dock and swim area in no time!

11 Camping Tips and Essentials for Your Next Adventure

June 14, 2018

Camping is a great way to spend quality family time during the summer but trying to figure out what to pack can be quite the brain strain. Whether you’re new to camping or just in need of a refresher, here’s some camping tips and camping essentials to ensure that your trip into the wilderness isn’t more adventurous than you intended.

11 Camping Essentials

1.        1. Shelter- If you don’t plan on sleeping under the stars, don’t forget to pack a tent, bring an RV or camper, or check with your campground about cabins.

TIP: Even if you do plan on sleeping under the stars, it is wise to bring at least a tent in case of any unplanned elements, such as rain.

TIP: If you’re planning on tenting it and you haven’t gone camping in a while, make sure to air out your tent ahead of time so it isn’t musty.

2.        2. Sleeping Bag and Pillow- Nights can get chilly, so make sure you pack a quality sleeping bag to keep you warm. 

       TIP: Pillows tend to smell like campfire and outdoors for a couple days after you return from camping, so if you want a fresh smell when you come back, pack different pillows than your current bedroom pillows.

3.        3. Air Mattress, Cot, or Sleeping Mat- Even the toughest of campers would benefit from this. Just because you’re tenting it, does not mean you need to rough it completely.

          4. Flashlight or Lanterns- Once it gets dark out, you’re going to need a light source, so you can see where you’re going without injuring yourself. It is also known that light helps prevent any villains from those scary stories around the bonfire from getting you.

TIP: Make sure to bring extra batteries in case your flashlight dies.

5.       5. Bug Repellant- Bugs can be the easiest way to ruin a fun camping weekend. Make sure you wear your bug repellant, so the mosquitos don’t eat you alive.

6.       6. Campfire Supplies- Between you and the campground, make sure you have enough supplies to make fires. Camping isn’t camping without the campfire.

7.       7. Kitchen Ware- Ultimately the food you bring while camping will determine what kitchen ware you need, but some good general things to bring are: bowls, plates, eating utensils, cast iron (or other heat safe) pot and pan, heat safe spoon and spatula, heat safe oven mitts, cooler with ice, can opener, dish soap, and a plastic tub for washing your dishes.

       TIP: A camping stove can make meal prep easier than cooking over the fire.

8.       8. Nonperishable Food and Bottled Water- Nonperishable food is easier to store while camping, and many families find bringing gallons of water and bottled water easier for drinking, cooking, cleaning, washing hands, etc. than purifying water with a purifier.

TIP:  Store your food in your car when you’re not cooking or eating so animals don’t scavenge through it.

9.      9. Toiletries and Toilet Paper- Even if you are camping in a place that has fully functional bathrooms, bringing toilet paper is smart in case they run out.

TIP:  Pack your sunscreen in your toiletries bag so you don’t forget it.

10.   10. Camping clothes- When packing for camping clothes, you will want to pack for weather of all sorts—chilly nights to hot or rainy days. You should also bring older clothes that can get dirty and possibly ripped.

11.   11. First-Aid Kit- You should always be prepared; injuries could happen.

TIP: To help with knowing exactly what you need to pack, contact your campground and see what camping supplies they already provide. Does the campground have picnic tables, firewood, fully functional bathrooms?

TIP: Do a test-run in your backyard to ensure nothing is forgotten and everything runs smoothly.

Camping can go very smoothly and as to plan when you follow a guideline and adequately prepare. Plan ahead and enjoy your time in the great outdoors!

 

 

 

Using Nutrient Reducers to Improve Water Health and Clarity

June 4, 2018

Using Nutrient Reducers to Improve Water Health and Clarity

If you are like most people with a pond, you may be in a constant battle with algae and weed growth during the warmer months of the year. This is because aquatic plants thrive in warm weather and the conditions that it brings to your pond. Excess nutrients can become an issue when trying to keep your pond healthy.

Lack of water movement can create a buildup of gases in the water. Gases can also come from decaying leaves and algae that don’t have a chance to be exchanged back into the air. Grass clippings, falling leaves and sticks can help add to nutrients in the water as well. Runoff from lawn fertilizer or from fields could also cause an abundance of nutrients in the water that only fuels algae and weed growth.

So what are some things you can do to control and reduce the amount of built up organic matter and excess nutrients in your pond? And how can you reduce muck at the bottom of your pond and improve pond water clarity at the same time?

Nutrient Reducers:

Lake Restoration offers two nutrient reducers specific for ponds, SparKlear® and PhosControl®.

SparKlear® contains bacteria and enzymes that work in your pond to break up organic matter (such as muck, grass, algae, and dead and decaying weeds and leaves). While reducing the amount of organic matter in your pond that algae feeds from, it also keeps your pond clear.

A pint of SparKlear® starts at $23.70, and more sizes are available depending on the size of your pond. We recommend treating once a month with this product.  Try applying it with the TORMADA® remote control application boat!

PhosCotrol® works by using aluminum sulfate to bind with phosphorus in your water. Phosphorus is another nutrient aquatic weeds and algae like (phosphorus can be from farm field or lawn fertilizer runoff). Without excess phosphorus in your water, weed and algae reproduction will slow down. Just one pound of phosphorus can produce 500 pounds of aquatic plant and algae growth, so making sure phosphorus isn’t in your water could be the key to successful aquatic weed and algae management.

1 pound of PhosControl® is $19.99 and will cover 2,000 square feet. Larger sizes are available.

Keep organic debris from getting in our pond:

You can reduce the amount of organic matter buildup in your pond by keeping things like weeds and grass clippings out of your pond. These grass clippings and weeds create food for algae.

Overall Solution:

If you are using an algaecide, you should also be using a nutrient reducer to help prevent prime algae conditions. We recommend using our pond products to prevent weeds, algae, and nutrients:

Dibrox® Herbicide: for submerged and floating weeds

Mizzen® algaecide: for existing algae

SparKlear®: to reduce nutrients and clarify water

Sapphire Bay® Blue Pond Dye: for a pleasing blue color

Steps to Control Pond Algae

April 24, 2018

Steps to Control Pond Algae

As the temperatures rise around the country this time of year, you may find that your pond is looking more green than usual. This is because warm temperatures, along with organic matter and excess nutrients in the water can create the perfect environment for very rapid algae growth.

To keep a clear pond, you need to be proactive taking the right steps to keep algae away. Keeping your pond clear of algae is similar to weeding your garden; you need to keep up with it, or it will get out of control. Starting early can really make a difference in your success.

Take note of some helpful tips and product recommendations to keep up with your pond.

1.       Using an algaecide regularly

Using an algaecide, like our copper-based Mizzen® algaecide, will be a key factor in eliminating algae once it has grown underneath or on top of your pond. Mizzen® is sprayed over the algae or can be applied with the TORMADA® remote controlled application boat. Mizzen® can help clear up your pond in as little as 7-14 days, with full results seen in a month. Algae can re-grow rapidly, even within a few days, so make sure you have enough Mizzen® on hand for a second treatment or spot treating. A half gallon of Mizzen will cover 20,000 square feet, and is $25.00.

2.       Use a nutrient reducer as part of your treatment plan

Nutrient reducers, such as SparKlear® and PhosControl® can help reduce the organic matter in your pond. SparKlear® contains bacteria and enzymes that eat away at the nutrients in your pond, and it can help improve your pond’s water clarity. PhosControl® contains aluminum sulfate that binds with phosphorus. Monthly treatments with these products are recommended.

3.       Consider aeration to help keep water clear

Aerators or aerating fountains work to keep water moving and will help exchange gases trapped in the water that are aiding in pond algae growth. Lake Restoration offers Vitaflume® floating and aerating fountains in 3 different sizes and can move 7,000-10,000 gallons of water per hour. Floating fountains keep water moving so that algae mats cannot form like they would in more stagnant waters. Aerating fountains help your pond “breathe,” exchange gasses that help weed growth, and they also look great as a centerpiece. Vitaflume® starts at $875 and offers optional LED lighting so you can customize the look of your centerpiece.

4.       If you also have weeds, we recommend using the following products for an overall healthy pond:

Dibrox® herbicide: controls floating and submerged weeds like Eurasian Watermilfoil and duckweed.

Mizzen® algaecide: to control filamentous and planktonic algae and scum.

SparKlear® or PhosControl® nutrient reducers: Improve water clarity and reduce nutrients.

Sapphire Bay® Pond Dye: Do give your pond a pleasing blue color.  

Following these steps will help improve your pond’s health starting early in the spring.

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.

Pond Maintenance Plan: Start Now for Spring and Summer Success!

April 4, 2018

Pond Treatment Schedule and Product Recommendation 

Spring is here! For certain parts of the country, warmer temps are already starting, which means so has aquatic weed and algae growth. Get a jump start on your aquatic weeds, and plan your treatment schedule for spring and summer! This will make treating your pond easy and routine. Don’t let the algae and weeds ruin your summer fun!

Here’s how to plan:

Step 1: Identify Weeds and Algae

First, you’ll need to know what you’ll be treating in order to find the right product for your vegetation. If you have had a pond for a while, you might already know what kinds of issues arise year after year. If you are new to owning a pond, or you need to identify a specific weed type, here’s how.

A.    Wait for growth to start, then examine your pond. Use the graph below to identify if you have emergent, floating, or submerged weeds, as well as nuisance algae and excess nutrients in your water (you could have multiple issues in your pond at one time)

 Aquatic Vegetation Graph

      B.     If you have done this and you want to identify it further, you can pull some weeds or algae out of your pond and examine it on a white paper towel to identify a species. Use our aquatic plant identifier tool to help you identify the species.

       C.     You can always send Lake Restoration photos of your pond and plants for our Lake Experts to take a look at and identify for you. Send your photos to lrmail@lakerestoration.com.

 

2. Choose Treatment

Depending on your aquatic vegetation, you might need different products to treat different vegetation. You may have algae, submerged weed, floating weeds, or all three! We have products that treat them all.

Common Floating Aquatic Weeds

Floating weeds float on the surface of the water. Common floating weeds include duckweed and watermeal.

SOLUTIONS: 

For Duckweed: Dibrox® aquatic herbicide or Spritflo® aquatic herbicide can be great for treating duckweed and other floating weeds in your pond.

Watermeal: Clipper herbicide is great for killing watermeal floating on the surface of your pond.

 

Common Submerged Aquatic Weeds

Submerged weeds are rooted in the ground underneath the water and grow up towards the surface. Common submerged weeds include milfoil, hydrilla, coontain, pondweeds, and more.

SOLUTIONS: 

Just like with floating weeds, submerged weeds can be easily controlled using Dibrox® or Spritflo® herbicides. These herbicides are great for pond use. We also carry a variety of other herbicides, liquid and granular, that will control submerged weeds as well.

 

Common Emergent Plants

Emergent plants are plants that grow above water or on your shoreline. These include cattails, water lilies, grass, weeds, poison ivy, and woody brush in and around ponds and lakes.

SOLUTIONS: To control emergent plants, use Glyphosate 5.4 to control problem areas. It is also recommended to use a surfactant to help Glyphosate spread. This treatment kills plants at the roots, and there are no restrictions for swimming and fishing.

 

Common Aquatic Algae

Algae can look like scum on the top of your pond, and it can form below the surface as well. Common algae includes planktonic, filamentous, and submerged algae. Algae can grow quickly in warm water, and spread within a few days.

SOLUTIONS:

Mizzen® Algaecide is a liquid, copper based algaecide that is great for treating your pond for all kinds of algae. Trout, Catfish, and Koi fish are allergic to copper. If you have these types of fish in your pond, we recommend using GreenClean algaecide.

 

3. Apply Herbicides and Algaecides

Most of our herbicides call for twice a season applications (could be more often if you are spot treating with certain products). Our Mizzen® algaecide should be used every month, or when algae is reappearing.

If you have weeds and algae, we recommend you check out our Pond Products page. There you will find your herbicide, algaecide, nutrient reducers and pond dyes to help give your pond the beautiful look it was intended to have. These products go great with our TORMADA® Remote Application Boat.

 

Refer to our Pond Maintenance guide for quick reference throughout the year. Lake Restoration is here to help you make pond weeds and algae one less headache. With a good plan in place for the season, you are sure to be successful in maintaining a healthy pond!

4 Steps to Make Your Own Ice Skating Rink This Winter

November 24, 2017

How to Turn Your Pond or Water Front Into an Ice Rink

Outdoor ice skating rinks have long been a staple in the winter. They are great for hosting a variety of activities, including boot hockey, stick hockey, and figure skating, to name a few. If you’re in a region where a thick layer of ice forms on your lake or pond each winter, try making your own ice rink for tons of winter fun!

Always make sure the ice is thick enough and safe enough to walk on before doing so.

Step One: Clear your ice

If there is a layer of snow on top of your ice, get a shovel and clear the snow. You may also opt to use a snow-blower to do the job quickly! You can clear the snow into whatever shape or size you want your rink to be.  Clear off your whole area, or just a portion of it, depending on the type of activities you’ll be doing.

If you do have snow to clear, you can also use the snow as a buffer or ridge to stop stray pucks from sliding too far across the lake or getting lost on the outside of your pond. It also acts as a boundary or “out of bounds” indicator if you plan on playing hockey or other games.

Step Two: Create a smooth surface

This step is for pond owners. If you have a small enough pond, you can let your hose run water onto the surface. The water will fill in any holes, cracks, or uneven surfaces once it freezes. You will be left with a smooth surface that ice skates won’t get tripped up on.

Step Three: Set up a lighting, benches, a warming house, etc.

Once you have the pond cleared and the surface smooth and ready, you can think about things to add. Will you be spending long hours on the rink? Bring your fish house down to the water so you have a place to warm up, put skates on, etc. If you don’t have a warming house, think about setting up chairs for people to sit in when they come off the ice, or when they are taking off skates/boots. Will you be playing at night? Bring a light down to the lake or pond with an extension cord so people can see in the dark.

Step Four: Get out on the ice and enjoy!

 

Now that you have everything set up and ready to go, you can finally start enjoying your new ice rink! Whether the kids start a neighborhood pond hockey league, or you try out your skating skills, there’s great fun to be had on the ice! 

If you use this guide, show us your photos of your finished ice rink! Share with us on Facebook.

How to Keep Mosquitoes, Ticks, and Other Pest Away This Summer

July 11, 2017

If you haven’t heard the news, ticks have been a major problem this year. Experts are saying the increase in tick population is due to the larger population of white footed mice that carry Lyme disease. The warmer weather and earlier heat up has helped mosquitoes breed and thrive this year as well.

If you live in a wooded area or are near a water source, you probably are well-aware of these pest issues. So how can you stop these pest in their tracks and maintain an enjoyable yard, free of pests?

Lake Restoration is now carrying a full line of pest control products, including products for use on ticks, adult mosquitoes, and mosquito larvae.

Most of the general pest control products can be sprayed indoors and outdoors on a variety of surfaces, including: lawn, turf, shrubs, greenhouses, kennels, parks, restaurants, warehouses, etc. These products are labeled for many pests, including: ticks, spiders, bed bugs, ants, mites, crickets, bees, wasps, cockroaches, etc. (see labels for full list of surface uses and pests controlled).

For specific pest, use the following products:

 

Mosquitoes

Larvae: Microbe-Lift (only works on mosquitoes and can be used in the TORMADA® application boat from Lake Restoration).

·         Apply to water with TORMADA® boat or sprayer every two weeks for full effects.

 

Adult mosquitoes: Bifen IT and Demon Max

·         These products can be used in a sprayer and should not be used in water.

·         Can be used on greenery, gardens, lawns and other area where mosquitoes are common.

·         Apply at average rates for adult mosquitoes.

 

 Ticks

Bifen IT, Demon Max, Cynoff EC, Talstar, and LambdaStar CS are all labeled to control ticks. These products can be sprayed on a variety of surfaces (check label restrictions on uses indoors and outdoors).

·         Do not spot treat areas for ticks, treat whole area where present.
