Nuisance Vegetation Control

Algae & Aquatic Weed Management

Nuisance vegetation control is critical to maintaining a clean, healthy ecosystem in-and-around your water feature. If allowed to thrive, algae, along with weeds, can take over quickly, creating an unsightly mess and throw a balanced ecosystem off. After initially correctly identifying the species to be treated, our goal is to eliminate unwanted vegetation from your pond quickly without harming the ecosystem or the stocked fish/amphibians inhabiting it.

The field experts at Triangle Pond Management are familiar with all species of nuisance vegetation including all types of weeds and algae, whether emergent, floating, or submerged. Our team is certified by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture where we maintain an aquatic pesticide license. Our licensed aquatic applicators are also certified to utilize eco-friendly herbicides that have been determined safe for use in lakes and ponds in and around NC.

Common Species Controlled Include:

Submergent (Exist under the water’s surface)
  • Hydrilla
  • Curly Leaf Pondweed
  • Fanwort
  • Bladderwort
  • Variable Leaf Milfoil
