About

Details

Duckweed is almost impossible to remove and it grows back amazingly quickly. After manually removing as much of the existing weed as you can - the application of this treatment seriously inhibits its return.

Best applied in Spring as soon as any duckweed growth is evident. Continuing applications throughout summer and early autumn helps prevent spore formation which can lead to new growth the following spring.

This is 100% natural biological control and no herbicides or pesticides are used in the manufacture of Duckweed Control.

Specifications

Q: When should I use Duckweed Control?

A: Duckweed Control is best applied in Spring as soon as duckweed growth is seen, but once the pond water temperature has reached eight degrees to ensure effective microbial activity.  However, it can be successfully applied right through the summer and early autumn (whilst temperature remains at 8-10 degrees) and this will prevent spore formation which otherwise leads to further duckweed growth the following Spring.

Q: What happens if I add more than the recommended dose?

A: As Extract of Barley Straw is a completely natural product, no harm will be caused by adding more than the guidelines recommend - it may even kill off the algae more quickly.

Q: I have been following the instructions fully and after 3 weeks my pond has still not cleared, what can I do?

A: The best thing is to be persistent and continue with the treatment and perhaps increase the quantity of liquid you use.  Exceptional heat will cause algae to grow much quicker.  Ensure the pond has enough oxygenating plants.  It may be necessary to remove dead plant material from the bottom of the pond.
