FAQ

What types of algae are controlled with a pond algaecide?

You can kill filamentous algae and planktonic algae with a copper algaecide. If you have Chara, we recommend combining Mizzen with copper sulfate for best results. Mizzen will also work on killing starry stonewort. If you have starry stonewort in your lake, you will need to treat at the maximum label rate per average depth.

Is it safe to use an algaecide if I have fish in my pond?

You can use Mizzen algaecide in a pond or lake with fish; however, trout, koi, goldfish, and channel catfish have a copper sensitivity. If you have these fish in your pond, we recommend using Cape Furl, a fish-safe algaecide for algae control.

How do I get rid of algae in my pond?

You can eliminate algae in your pond by using a pond algaecide to kill the algae. Regrowth can occur within 10-14 days. To deter future algae growth, we recommend using nutrient reducers to help reduce the phosphorus and nitrate levels in the water. Phosphorus reduction has been identified as the most effective strategy for limiting algae growth. Use PhosControl 7 days after treating with Mizzen to knock down phosphorus levels and limit re-growth.

How often can I treat with an algaecide?

It is best to treat your pond in sections so you do not deplete the oxygen levels in the pond. We recommend treating a section of your pond, and then 7-10 days later treat another section. Re-growth can occur within 10-14 days; re-treat as needed.

What is the best way to apply an algaecide?

We recommend diluting the pond algaecide with water and then spraying it evenly across the surface of the water or spot-treat the algae mats as needed. The algae should be present and actively growing. An algaecide works best when it is applied when the water temperature is 60° F or warmer and it is a clear, calm, sunny day.

Is Chara an algae, and how do I eliminate it?

Chara is a gray-green branched algae that is often mistaken for a submerged plant, but it is not rooted to the bottom of a pond or lake. Chara algae is best eliminated when it is young and has fewer calcium deposits. We recommend using a combination of Mizzen algaecide and copper sulfate crystals to give you the best control in your pond or lake.

Can Mizzen be mixed with other products?

Mizzen can be mixed with other products to eliminate algae and other aquatic vegetation; you can mix Mizzen with an herbicide. We recommend using Mizzen algaecide and Dibrox herbicide for the best combination! To eliminate Chara in your pond, use Mizzen algaecide and copper sulfate crystals.

Algae control

How to apply

  • Use the Tormada product application boat for easy application, or
  • Dilute with water and evenly spray the surface over the algae
    • Dilute 16 oz. in 1 gallon of water

When to apply

  • Apply on a sunny, calm day when the water temperature is 60° F or warmer
  • Treat when algae are actively growing and near the surface of the water
  • May re-treat every 10-14 days or when there is new growth

Other tips

  • Application rates based on a 2 ft. average depth, areas with dense growth may require a higher rate to be used
  • In a pond, if the algae are around the perimeter, treat the whole perimeter
  • In a pond, do not treat more than half of your pond at one time. Wait 10-14 days before applying a second treatment to the remainder of the pond

    I’m new to the product and have been using it about once a week to treat algae in my pond. The fact it is safe for wildlife was a huge win for me as I didn’t want to disturb the delicate ecosystem. Using the recommended mix rate called for seems to be a little weaker than what I need to treat the affected areas. When I went to about 125% of what it called out, there was a noticeable difference in performance. Right now still treating the surface as the algae is all gone but the sub surface “globs” will slowly raise to the top. Will continue to use the treatment and see how it works on a more long term schedule. Thanks!

  2. Gregg

    Had carpet algae at the beginning of the spring season and bought 2 gallons to treat a 2 acre pond. Concerned with oxygen depletion I split the treatment into 3 treatments about 10 days apart. After first treatment 70% of the algae was gone and no dead fish. After second treatment 95 % of the algae was gone and no dead fish, just applied the third treatment yesterday and expect 100% clear in a week with no dead fish.

    I use this product every year to control algae in a 1/4 acre pond. Properly does, works well with Dibrox for a total weed/algae treatment. Repeat treatments approx 2-3 weeks along with Saphire Bay provides clean look throughout the summer.

  4. jmfre50 (verified owner)

    I use Mizzen in the spring and throughout the year to manage carpet algae. The pond that feeds into mine is not being treated and I have continuous influx to my pond every time it rains. It works great and will not be looking for something else to get rid of the algae. I highly recommend this product.

  5. philnogalski (verified owner)

    I use a few times Mizzen in Spring. Controls the algae every time.

  6. wchasechap

    we have a small bass pond ~2ac that is shallow and gets warm and grows lots of algae along the edges. I spray extra thick dose from my hand held battery powered sprayer which will get about 20′ distance all along the pond edge. Couple of days..big improvement.

  7. Charles Bowman

    I have a quarter acre pond in Indiana that is fed by farm field drainage. The battle with the algae is now over, and I won. Mizzen as directed, a little pond dye, and an aerator did the trick. Once or twice during the season, I will use Debrox on individual, stubborn weeds but Mizzen is the star of the show! I highly recommend it.

  8. Lt Col John D Bowman (verified owner)

    Have used this product for 15 years. Does excellent against algae blooms in my large pond fed by chemical fertilizer runoff. I go a bit strong and lake stays clean all summer. Water just sparkles.

  9. Lee Boock

    I have used the product for about 5 years in our pond. It takes care of the unsightly algae. Very easy to use. It does not take long to get the product once I order.

  10. cboley

    This stuff rocks!!! I use it 3 to 4 times a summer as I see the algae blooms start. 3 days later Kaboom! no more algae…. never seems to bother my fish or ducks at all even though I spray the whole pond each time. I have a harder time controlling the weeds around the banks (can’t quite mow all the way to the waters edge) then I do with my algae. You’ll love this product!!

  11. Susan Summer

    I have used this product for 3 summers. I am pleased with the results. It doesn’t harm the fish, frogs or turtles in the pond. It works rather quickly too.

  12. relax

    Used Mizzen in a boat harbor with some calm spots that developed mats of algae , some I think might of been blue /green but not confirmed . Mizzen use as directed worked great and I will keep some on hand for future treatment. Great product and fast shipping. Thanks LR

  13. Darryl

    This product is amazing! Wipes out algae in two days or less. Great product!

    We have been using Mizzen for a year now for storm water ponds and has worked as they say!!! Works great

    Used in conjunction with Diquat and it works great on the algae

    I have a quarter acre pond that was covered in a thick blanket of algae. I sprayed the Mizzen over all the algae and the very next morning the blanket of algae was gone. I am impressed. I am going to continue to use this product as it works faster and its cheaper than other products I have used

  18. Anonymous (verified owner)

    It did not work like they said it would. They told me that I need to treat my pond once a month so they expect me to spend $500 a month on my pond. Uh no! Why is this product not working? My pond still looks exactly the same as it did before I put the product in.

  19. Linda (verified owner)

    I really wanted the Mizzen to be a great product since it was saving me a lot over Cutrine. It was OK, but found I had to use twice as much to equal the effectiveness of Cutrine therefore negating any savings. I wish it would have worked better!

  20. Anonymous (verified owner)

    I have used this for 3 seasons now. I have experienced no fish or frog die off. I use it in my main pond and the silt pond. I see all the little tadpoles swimming happily along. Does not affect the game fish or the grass Carp but sure works on the bubbling bright green algae. I am in South Carolina and I try to “git’r’done” early in the season when it’s starting to bloom. Makes sense…the less algae, the less (properly applied according to directions) product you’ll need to use. My pond would look like a swamp without it.

  21. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Mizzen works fine. However, you do have to follow instructions and spray small areas at a time or you will lose some fish. Most importantly, you need to aerate your pond especially when its hot an after using a lot of this product.

  22. Anonymous (verified owner)

    I bought 2 gallons(their recommendations for 1 acre pond) and sprayed about 1/3 of my pond. It seems to have fertilized the algae and killed about 250 fish. Now I have a algea problem and no fish. DO NOT BUY!!

  23. Anonymous (verified owner)

    I read what came with product and saw no directions, so I sprayed some patches with what I assumed was a safe amount. Apparently not since my fish began dying and my once pristine pond became a mess. I’ll be returning the second gallon.

  24. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Within 2 days after applying Mizzen to my 1/2 acre pond, the algae began to die and has been continuing it’s treatment over a number of weeks. Great product and reasonably priced. I also bought the Tormada and love it!!!

  25. Bruce (verified owner)

    Wow! I had been fighting a losing battle with the algae in our pond for the last two years! I sprayed this on it, and the algae was thick and matted in areas, and 48 hours later, almost all of it has disappeared! You have no idea how happy I am to have finally found this product!

  26. Kimberley (verified owner)

    Did not work at all.

  27. Anonymous (verified owner)

    I have a lot of fish in my pond and I was worried about killing them. I followed the directions on the bottle and did portions of the pond at a time. No more algae and no dead fish! Completely satisfied!

  28. tim (verified owner)

    Excellent product. Easy to apply. Cleared up in days. Awesome.

  29. Anonymous (verified owner)

    All I can say is AMAZING!! I followed the directions and in 2 days all the floating patches of algea were no where in sight. easy to use and apply.
