We clean waterways
Removal of unwanted biomass is paramount to a healthy waterway and ecosystem. Chemical applications only sink the detritus waste to the bottom creating lower oxygen levels, decreased water depths, and increased temperatures.

Is it permanent?
Nature will always try to reclaim its territory and the removal of invasive plants is a process. However, extracting annually for 2-3 years is the best method of tamping down on the issue without harmful chemicals that create biomass silt at the bottom of your lake leading to murky waters.
Invasive Aquatic Plants
While some can be quite pretty, they can wreak havoc on a pond or lake's eco system. Fast growing, they suffocate native plants and can turn perfectly healthy ponds or lakes unhealthy in a short matter of time. Invasive Aquatic Plants affect water quality and oxygen levels in the water ultimately killing fish and other aquatic animals that call this habitat home which in turn affects local wildlife that also rely on the water source for nutritional needs.
Being wide spreaders, these invasive plants also reduce real estate values, ruin a good time at the lake and will most assuredly make certain that your boat gets stuck. Mechanical removal with our Weedoo Workboat ensures that you can get back to enjoying your slice of nature with the assurance that it is leading to a healthier habitat for your fishy friends without introducing chemicals which can cause a whole other set of problems.
