Control Duckweed

Duckweed control is important in your pond or lake; many people ask how to kill duckweed or how to get rid of duckweed in a pond. There are multiple options for duckweed killer.

Manual/ Mechanical Control:

Physically raking or pulling out all the duckweed can be an effective method of control, although duckweed can replicate quickly from remaining buds.

Herbicide Control:

  1. Dibrox – liquid that is diluted with water and sprayed over the plants, fast-acting
  2. Spritflo (for ponds with no outflow) – liquid that is poured into the water and spreads throughout the entire body of water, offers extended control
  3. Semera or Flumigard (with surfactant) – liquid or granules that are dissolved in water and sprayed (early morning is best) over the plants, fast-acting.
