Common Water Body Problems:

Eurasian Water Milfoil and other Invasive Weeds

The Problem

Ponds that are over-run with weed growth are typically being fed by the compost pile of nutrients in the bottom “muck”. Independent scientific research on our aeration technologies and biological treatment has proven that we can reduce weeds by depriving the roots of the plants the nutrients needed for growth. This includes such harmful invasive species as Eurasian Water Milfoil, Curly Leaf Pondweed, Hydrilla and more.

The AerationTech Solution

While it can be difficult to achieve perfect control in every pond, most of our treated ponds have been converted to 100% herbicide free in 1 – 2 seasons. Other ponds have seen 25% to 50% reductions in herbicide use.

CASE STUDY:
Our Most Remarkable Eurasian Water Milfoil Success Story to Date

The Challenge

Pickerel Lake is a shallow 140-acre lake in Southwest Michigan. With a maximum depth of only 10 feet, the lake was particularly susceptible to invasive Eurasian Water Milfoil. In 2012, over 85% of the lake was consumed by the thick growth, with milfoil topped all the way to the surface on 70% of the entire lake. The infestation was so heavy that hundreds of frogs were living on top of the weeds with no fear of predation from bass or other game fish.
