Aquatic Weed Control Treatment Guide

Pond weed identification is essential for determining the proper herbicide to effectively treat your pond. Aquatic herbicides contain different active ingredients which cause the treatments to work in different ways- fast control vs long term control, killing submerged weeds vs surface weeds, spray application vs granular broadcast.
