CALL THE DR AT POND WISER, INC. TO CONTROL YOUR AQUATIC WEEDS
The DR, also known as Denny Ray of Pond Wiser, Inc. is the person to call for all of your aquatic weed problems. He specializes in weed control for bodies of water both large and small, including lakes and ponds.
The folks at Pond Wiser, Inc. know that weeds plague not only those who farm, garden and like to grow nice, green lawns, they are also a cause for concern for large lakes. There are a whole host of aquatic weeds to contend with that can threaten the life and balance of other plants and creatures in lakes and ponds. They can help you control suchaquatic weeds as bladderworts, pondweed, water willow (also known as American water willow), pickerelweed, watermeal, cattails and water lilies.
Although many consider waterlilies (nymphaea) attractive water flowers, they are aquatic weeds. They grow naturally inlakes as well as in ponds and marshes. Cultivated plants can be found for use in backyard ponds. If you want them, fine, but if you want to get rid of them or keep them under control, Denny Ray of Pond Wiser, Inc. can help.
Of all the aquatic weeds, hydrilla (hydrilla verticillata) is often considered the worst one to control in the United States. It is native to Australia, Africa and Asia, but made its way to Florida as a plant sold for aquariums. It has now spread primarily through the southern states but it has been spotted in lakes and ponds as far north as Maine on the East Coast, Washington State on the West Coast, and Indiana in the Midwest. It is characterized by its small needle-like leaves that grow in clusters or whorls of 4-8 leaves along the plant’s stem. The leaves have protruding spines on the underside along the midrib and branch out heavily on the surface creating dense canopies on lakes and other large bodies of water. If you have problems with hydrilla Pond Wiser, Inc. can help.
If you have a problem with aquatic weeds of any type or nature, you can call on the folks at Pond Wiser, Inc. Denny Ray is licensed and certified through the Ohio Department of Agriculture for aquatic control and turf management. You could call Denny a “surf and turf specialist”.
