Pond Treatments – Algaecides, Herbicides, and Biological Agents
Algaecides and herbicides have proven to be a very effective Integrated Management tool. Many aquatic plants and certain algae species can only be managed with pesticides. However, over-use of pesticides can cause adverse effects. Our trained consultants understand the environmental impacts associated with over-using pesticides and will always look at using alternative tools to manage nuisance aquatic growth when possible.
Wisconsin Lake & Pond Resource, LLC provides professional applications for all products we sell, including, Water Quality Enzymes, Water Clarity Bacteria, and Nutrient Reduction Agents.
When pesticides are required to manage aquatic plants and algae, precision application is critical to avoid damage to non-target species and drift outside the treatment area. Wisconsin Lake & Pond Resource LLC utilizes state of the art equipment equipped with GPS guidance systems and flow control meters. Our commercial applicators are trained, licensed, and insured.
Wisconsin Lake & Pond Resource LLC has been certified as a Naturalake Certified company, verifying their commitment to the science behind healthy, balanced water bodies.

Most states require Aquatic Plant Management permits issued through the State agencies or a current Type I or Type II fish farm license issued through the Department of Agriculture for all pesticide applications.

We contacted WLPR because cattails and reed canary grass had taken over our pond. Cory evaluated the situation and recommended a program of control we could do ourselves. What a difference! The water is so clear, we can see almost to the bottom. And, except for a little granular cutrine we have not had to use algaecide at all. The reed-canary grass is gone, and we are using Shore-Klear on the cattails now, hoping to greatly reduce their numbers by spring. Thank-you WLPRKen and Beth L
