Lake Weed Management In Northeast Ohio

Eurasian Watermilfoil

LAKE WEED MANAGEMENT and why Watermilfoil should make you hop on over to our friends at Pondwiser. Pond Wiser Inc. is Licensed and Certified by the Ohio Department of Agriculture. (Eurasian watermilfoil is bad for your pond or lake).

The plant pictured here is the Eurasian Watermilfoil. There are native milfoil species in Ohio, but we are told by our friends at Pondwiser that this is a submersed aquatic plant that is really nasty. This stuff grows really fast in early spring. It grows really densely (like people I know) and inhibits recreational activities, such as boating, swimming, and fishing. This plant grows so thick that it can inhibit fishes ability to move around and prevents other native plants from being able to grow.

So, here is the deal. If you have a pond or lake, then you need to have the Pondwiser Dr. come out and give it an exam. If you don’t have a pond or lake, you should get one. If you have a pool, then you should invite me and my family over. (But I digress) Anything off the grill would be great.

Eurasian WatermilfoilSeriously folks, this stuff is really nasty and can be spread from lake to lake by your boat. Every time you take your boat out of the water, you should inspect it for any plant fragments and remove them. Also be sure to drain the water from live wells and bait containers. Wash you boat off with high pressure or hot water and then let it dry for 5 days before entering a new body of water.

You really need to get a treatment program started before May 1st to get this weed under control. We at iTownz encourage you to hop on over to see the DR at

If that is a little to intense for you, then hop on over to their Facebook page and like them. They love you, can’t you feel it? Let the DR operate and return your lake to its total awesomeness. Who wants a pond or lake that is sick? No one.

Pick up the phone and call our friends at Pondwiser today! If you don’t, well, I can’t mention what may happen as this is a G-rated blog. But you get the point, Pondwiser can help you fix any issues you may have with Lake Weed Management and a whole lot more.
