For Cattail Removal. (if you cut the cattails just below the water surface they will not survive - this plant needs oxygen to survive. The WeedShear will cut through cattails but does require some hard work. The AVG and the Lake Mower are the only tools that cut cattails with minimal effort).
Skip the chemicals - We arent against chemicals but if you saw our lakeshore you'd see that you can make the perfect swim area without poisons - so why use them? IF you kill em with chemicals, they will fall to the bottom, rot and decay, adding more muck and they will squish betwix your toes and add fuel to algae and weed growth.
Are We Anti-Chemical? No. Chemicals have their place however based on our own excellent results, we are certain that our mechanical tools provide a better result for less money and possibly more important, we are not putting herbicides and chemicals in the specific area that we swim and fish.
Stay on top of the shoreline issues - Dead weeds and debris allowed to collect on the bottom or shoreline begin to pile up and create an overwhelming clean up task. Having the right tools and methods will make this a more workable task.
All new value-added bacteria pellets, were designed for lagoons, lakes and ponds as a low-maintenance solution for sludge bed and suspended solids removal, water clarity and beach clean-up.

Looking for Chemicals? - At the Weeders Digest, we are not opposed to chemicals, however, we do believe chemicals do pose possible risk to the health and welfare of the environment, wildlife, fish and humans when not used properly.
We receive calls nearly everyday with frustrated shoreline owners who have had poor results using herbicides. Poor results are almost always due to misidentifying the weeds, applying the wrong product, incorrect dosage or applying at the wrong time. Proper pre-application research and following the label is very important!
And nearly every application merely treats the visible symptoms only. Consider the one time cost of purchasing the tools found here vs the continual application (and continued expense) of chemical treatments that are only somewhat effective.
If you would like to hire someone to harvest weeds or professioanlly apply chemicals - we are associated with many professional companies that we are more than happy to recommend.
