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.
Pond Treatments Available for Select Species
- Filamentous Algae
- Sago Pondweed
- Eurasian watermilfoil
- Curlyleaf Pondweed
- And many others!
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. Contact WLPR for assistance in obtaining the proper license or permit for your application.

I think they did a great job managing the pond again this year. I also appreciate how quick they are to respond to us when there is a question or concern (for example our question on no tadpoles and fish not biting). They have also been very willing to provide whatever information we have requested from them in regards to the treatments and their impacts (or lack there of).
They have been a great partner to work with!Homeowner association member
