Pond Algae Control

Too much algae is unsightly and mars the beauty of your pond or lake and may pose even worse problems.

While algae occurs naturally, overactive algae blooms can affect the balance of your pond ecosystem.

Some types of algae can even pose a health threat, such as the noxious Blue-Green Algae.

Our experienced team of pond management professionals will bring you all the best practices for controlling and eliminating excess algae from your lake or pond. We work with property owners across Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma.

water quality assessment

Out of control algae growth is a strong indicator that water quality in your pond is not ideal.

Our biologists start treating your pond or lake by testing the water and looking for concentrations of certain elements that promote algae growth.

For example, excess phosphorous causes Blue-Green Algae to grow. That’s often caused by runoff from nearby farm fields that have been fertilized or have excessive manure.

There are a range of varieties of algae, from plant-like green algae to Blue-Green Algae which is actually more closely related to bacteria than plants.

Our team will assess the types and amounts of algae present and determine the course of action to control it and prevent algae growth in the future. 

Pond algae treatment

Our pond management professionals can conduct a range of pond algae and bacteria control and elimination treatments.

Options for algae control include sprays and granules, such as copper and peroxide-based formulations.

Our team will also provide long-term algae prevention and control guidance and treatments.

Introducing fish that eat algae can be an approach to long-term prevention.

If excess phosphorous is causing Blue-Green Algae to take hold, we offer treatments for reducing excess phosphorous, but it’s important to cut phosphorus inflows. That can require limiting livestock or fertilizing of farm fields in the area.

All of our employees are trained, tested and licensed professionals who are skilled and experienced at handling the chemicals and products that we use for controlling and eradicating pond algae.
