Services - Aquatic Weed Control & Management UK

Complete Weed Control offer aquatic weed control services throughout the UK

Although the Environment Agency has banned the use of herbicides in lakes and ponds they can still be used on emergent plants such as bull rushes and lilies.

It is also possible to use a dye or colourant which improves the look of the water as well as creating conditions that reduce photosynthesis therefore making it more difficult for algae to form.

We can use this colourant in conjunction with a bio-product which is designed to control swimming or floating algae found in ponds or all stagnant expanses of water. These algae develop and proliferate in nutrient rich waters and are the main cause of oxygen depletion of the water following their decay. Apart from the aesthetic unpleasantness caused, they create a physical obstacle to activities such as irrigation, water sports, fishing or fish farming.

This bio-product is composed of bacteria and therefore does not disturb the balance of the environment in which it is applied. The product is very well tolerated by fish and by all aquatic fauna and flora.

Don’t forget:

  • Herbicides need to have specific aquatic approval to be used in or near water.
  • If a product has approval for aquatic use, agreement must be obtained from the Environment Agency before it is applied in or near water.
  • Operators applying herbicides must specifically hold a PA6AW, NPTC Certificate of Competence.
