    Algae can quickly become a major problem for any pond or lake. Not only can it be an eyesore, it can also be detrimental to the health of your water and those who use it. In the United States, algae blooms are the primarily cause of fish kills. Algae can also damage water crafts and boating equipment. If your pond or lake is being overrun with chara, coontail, naiads, hydrilla, mil-foil, star grass, pond weeds, or other algae species, turn to concentrated Hydrothol Granular 191. This easy-to-use formula is also effective for many varieties of lake shore weeds. For over 30 years, Hydrothol has been one of the most trusted and widely-used herbicides/algaecides in America. In fact, it is the only registered organic broad spectrum aquatic algaecide available.

    Fast-acting and effective even in slow-moving water, Hydrothol is a versatile choice. And because it will not bind to dissolved sediment, it can even be used in muddy sections of ponds and lakes. It is the premier choice for spot or marginal treatments. Use Hydrothol to clear paths in irrigational or drainage systems. Prepare your waterway for swimmers, skiers, or fishermen.

    Feel comfortable knowing Hydrothol is the environmental choice. This granular dissipates quickly and does not bio-accumulate in the hydrosoil or fish. Therefore, when properly used, it will not adversely affect your pond or lake or cause toxicity in fish.

    Following treatment, restrict domestic and livestock water usage from 7 - 25 days depending on application. To avoid trapping fish in the treated area, it is best to apply the granular outward from the shoreline or in strips. Apply with a spreader or scoop. See product label for proper application information.

    Key Features:

    • 20 lb. Re-sealable Bag
    • Useful against a wide variety of aquatic algae and weeds
    • Application rates: 3 to 136 lbs. per acre ft. of water

    Copper Sulfate (Med Cry) 5 LB L00101

    $20.97

    Get that crystal clear pond or lake you have always dreamed of by using Copper Sulfate as an algaecide to control the Filamentous and Planktonic algae in your water.  Finally get rid of that nasty swimmers itch and enjoy the water once more.

    Discovered in the early 1900's Copper Sulfate has been used for effective algae control in lakes, ponds, ditches, pools, golf course water hazards and irrigation routes. Its blue colored granules broadcast evenly or you can dilute it in water for even distribution.

    Copper Sulfates works by binding to the proteins in fungi and algae causing them to leak and die off.  It is most effective when used on the bottom mats and first application should be performed as early in the season as possible to kill off existing shoots and prevent others from sprouting. This small 5lb package is great to use in smaller bodies of water such as watering troughs and pools, keeping clean and clear water all season long.

    Copper Sulfate is not as effective in hard water as chelated products and is also toxic to fish in soft water areas.  It is corrosive to metal equipment, thus it should be used with caution. Apply 2.7 lbs. per acre foot of water. There are no restrictions on immediate water usage.

    Features:

    • 25% Copper Compound
    • Effective against Filamentous, Branched and Planktonic Algae

  10. SePRO Total Pond - Prevent 3lb.- L01035

    SePRO Total Pond - Prevent 3lb.- L01035

    $78.97

    Product Description

    SePRO Total Pond - Prevent controls unwanted aquatic vegetation by restricting the plant’s ability to make food, causing them to die.  This involves inhibiting development of yellow pigments that protect a plant’s chlorophyll from decomposition by sunlight.  As the plant’s chlorophyll decreases, so does its capacity to produce food.  The visual symptom of SePRO Total Pond - Prevent’s action is bleaching (turning white) on the terminal bud or growing points of the plant.

    • Packaging: 3 pound container, non-refillable
    • Treatment Area: Treats up to 8,000 sq. ft., 4 feet deep
    • Contains: Sonar for Early-Season Floating and Submersed Weed Removal and Prevention
    • Recommended Application Timing: Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter

     

    Before & After Application 

    SePRO Prevent

     

    Active Ingredients

     

    Chemical Name Percentage of A. I.
    1-Methyl-3-phenyl-5-(3-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl)-4(1H)-pyridinone 2.7

     

     

    What to Expect

    SePRO Total Pond - Prevent is selective and controls target weeds slowly.  It lets desirable vegetation re-establish itself, and does not result in oxygen depletion or fish kill.  Aquatic weeds remain under control for a full season and often longer.  It takes 30 to 60 days for this product to control established weeds.  You should expect full results within 90 days.  You’ll be able to observe the visual symptoms of SePRO Total Pond - Prevent’s action as chlorosis, or bleaching, gradually appearing on the terminal buds, or growing points, of the plant.

Algae is a nuisance. Whether it occurs in your stock tanks, decorative ponds, fishing areas, or other water on your land, algae is difficult to control and presents a host of problems. Frequent cleaning of livestock tanks does not prevent algae from growing back. The same is true in larger bodies of water; manual removal of algae only works on a temporary basis and the algae often seems to grow almost as fast as it is removed. Thankfully Rural King has a variety of algaecides appropriate for multiple uses so that you can say goodbye to algae permanently.

If left untreated, algae can cause drinking water to be unpalatable and will compete for nutrients and sunlight with other aquatic plants in ponds and lakes. Extreme overgrowth of algae will choke out other plant forms and can result in the die-off of fish. In addition, thick algae prevents you from enjoying the water by making activities such as fishing, boating, and swimming difficult or impossible. Combined with the displeasing appearance and sometimes foul odors, algae is a small plant that can cause big problems! Algaecides provide a simple and permanent solution for dealing with algae. Browse our selection of algaecides to find one suitable to your needs. Varieties of algaecides are available for use in stock tanks, lakes, ponds, fish hatcheries, and more.
