Reed and Bulrush Control
Once the plant has been dug out it is left to float and the collection rake attachment is used to lift all the vegetation out of the water. Seeds from the bulrush removal process will still be present in the silt so future growth will still occur, but by removing the whole plant, re-growth can be more easily controlled.
Mechanical Cutting Reed Control – Approved herbicidal treatments can be used for Phragmites Control/Common Reed Control and the chemical can be applied from the bank or a boat. Once the plant has died off, we remove dead vegetation using our heavy duty cutters on the Truxor and then remove it to the bank with the collection rake. Mechanical Reed Cutting and Herbicidal treatments can provide a short term management solution.
Note: Only approved chemicals can be used to treat vegetation in and around water. Aquatic Solutions UK can apply for the required permit from the Environment Agency on your behalf and then apply the approved chemical using our NPTC qualified operators once it has been granted.
