Not on an acre and a half. It's a yuge pia to do anything. I tried to hit it early along the banks with copper sulphate. The Cutrine plus is supposed to dissapate and not remain in the water like the regular stuff. The agricultural runoff which spikes the stuff is not as bad as when my neighbors grew corn (auuugghh!) or even cattle. But our new neighbors have a couple of barns and they raise and house thouroghbreds. They spread the stall muck in their fields so I'm wondering if the runoff is affecting the nitrogen level in the pond.I'm sure you know the salt trick __ but for obvious reasons , not good to do near a pond . have you tried boiling water ? . kills down to the root / doesn't destroy the minerals in the dirt
my Father used a steam machine for problem areas . no chemicals . just plain water
It's beautiful in the winter and spring. But the damn stuff explodes come May.
