The Landscape of Your Pond
A pond’s ecosystem comprises various natural components such as fish, algae, and an aeration system that promotes circulation. However, weeds are another organic element that can grow in and around the pond, posing a nuisance and even detracting from the pond’s aesthetics. Fortunately, pond microbes can help manage these weeds. Air-O-Lator offers a range of products that aid in controlling pond weeds. In this article, we’ll explore the types of pond microbes and their efficacy in managing specific weed types.
Pond Microbes are essentially bacteria that aid in the breakdown of organic matter in a pond. These microorganisms can be beneficial or harmful to the pond’s health. Beneficial bacteria thrive in oxygen-rich environments, while harmful bacteria flourish in oxygen-deprived conditions, resulting in sludge build-up. The pond microbes available in the market are beneficial bacteria that support the pond’s well-being.
