  • Managing aquatic vegetation
    Managing aquatic vegetation without chemicals
        Aquatic plants and algae are common to many of Ohio’s ponds and quite often attain abundances that cause problems for owners. Excessive plants and algae can interfere with swimming and fishing, upset the fish community‚s balance, clog pumps if present, and ruin the aesthetic value of the pond. Many pond owners have expressed a desire to manage their pond without the use of chemicals. Also, pending new federal rules may make using herbicides and algaecides in aquatic systems more difficult and expensive. So it seems relevant to consider how a pond’s plant community might be managed without chemicals.
