Aquatic Weed Control

Aquatic Weed Control and Aquatic Weed Cutting and Removal

Aquatic weed control is important for maintaining rivers, waterways and lakes. Although aquatic plants  provide food and safe habitat for animals, help reduce erosion of river banks and absorb pollutants, some plants grow excessively and spoil the appearance and quality of the watercourse.

Invasive aquatic plants cause the following problems:

  • Increase the risk of flooding/water logging even when weed has appeared to die back
  • Silting up of watercourse impeding flow and increasing the need for dredging
  • Invasive weeds interfere with boats, fishing and other forms of recreation activity
  • Detached weeds and algae float downstream blocking pumps, sluices and filters
  • Some weeds deoxygenate water killing fish, aquatic animals and cause serious odours
  • Rapid growth of aquatic weeds suppresses other species of aquatic plants

Aquatic weed control and aquatic weed cutting does not need detailed knowledge of every aquatic plant but applying the following principles:

Identifying the weed–  See our useful Weed Identification Guide on different weeds to help identify what your type

Habitat and lifecycle of the aquatic weed – Where and how the weed grows.

Cause of the weed problem – i.e Is it run-off from neighbours or your site?

Timing of weed control – When is the best time of the year to take action

Cutting and gathering or treating the aquatic weed–  Using the Truxor machine and applying herbicide at the most appropriate time and quantity.
