The Removal and Treatment of Blanketweed

Refresh your browser to replay movie

The Dept of the Environment have effectively banned all chemical treatments to kill Blanket Weed. Some proprietary brands are still sold in Europe but the favoured method of Blanket Weed control is the use of “natural” methods. The simplest of these “natural” treatments is to stock the pond with plants and animals that actively consume blanket weed or compete for the same food. This would establish a natural equilibrium in the pond but in practice would limit the number of fauna and flora making the pond less of an ornamental feature.

Other non chemical removal methods include the aggressive use of metallic ions such as copper which if not dosed correctly can kill fish and plants. Still other natural methods using barley straw have varied results but in many cases the Blanket Weed will develop an immunity and often re-appears with a vengeance and does not respond any more to this type of treatment.

We have been treating Blanket Weed in ponds and lakes for 12 years with excellent results. We advocate the use of Green Lightning Treatment. Green Lightning contains dried bacteria designed to eat the same food as Blanket Weed (and the other weeds listed on our home page).
