What is a blanket weed and how to choose the best blanket weed treatment?

A blanket weed is a filamentous type of pond algae with long, green fibers. It can grow quickly and spread rapidly if it's not treated. This type of algae can either float freely on the pond's water surface or stick to the pond walls and rocks, as well as plants. Like all other forms of algae, blanket weed reproduces by spores. These spores can be found in the air and carried to other ponds by birds, amphibians, and plants. Blanket weed can cause pond pumps and filters to clog, particularly in fishponds with a lot of fish, resulting in a build-up of fish waste and an environmental problem. Other blanket weed-related issues include fish being trapped in the weed and therefore unable to free themselves, as well as low levels of oxygen caused by high amounts of algae.

How to choose the best blanket weed treatment for your pond?

It is not easy to choose the best blanket weed treatment for your pond due to the many products on the market. But let's see are effects of the excessive algae in your lake or pond.

First of all, with an excessive number of algae flowering in your lake, the oxygen level will decrease, and the sunlight will be blocked for the underwater plants. Because of the lack of oxygen in your lake, aquatic life can't survive. Secondly, the so-called blue-green algae bloom in freshwater lakes and ponds can be very toxic to fish and wildlife. It is not recommended to be applied chemical treatments, especially during extended periods of sweltering weather, because of the risk of significant scale toxin release or oxygen depletion. It is safer to use aeration methods or apply nutrient deprivation products. 

We all want to have a clean and healthy lake, and this could be done with a blanket weed treatment. It is safer and easy to use. The blanket weed is something to get rid of because of the unsightly appearance and the bacteria that could be lethal to fishes. A blanket weed acts like a sunlight barrier that stops the photosynthesizing process of the aquatic weeds that eventually kills them. This process of lake weed control is known as the benthic barrier. 

Lakes are the perfect spots to cool off during the hot summer days. But the algae on the lake could stop you from enjoying it. So, to resolve this problem efficiently, we recommend the LakeMat from Goodbye to Muck.
