What is a Littoral Shelf? Why is it in my Pond?
If you are unfamiliar with a littoral shelf, it is a shallow shelf in a pond. Planted with native aquatic vegetation, it is normally located near an outflow structure. As for its purpose, the main job is to filter out minerals and nutrients in the water before the water leaves the pond via the outflow structure.
Why Does My Storm Water Retention Pond Contain So Much Algae?
In Florida, most storm water retention ponds have very high mineral and nutrient levels caused by runoffs from fertilized yards and nearby roads. As a result, algae bloom is very common.
Do Any of Your Applications Hurt Fish or Wildlife?
Absolutely not. Here at Crosscreek, we strive to ensure all of our pond management techniques are very environmentally-friendly. Because of this, every herbicide used by our technicians is registered with the Environmental Protection Agency to be safe for the environment. Along with this, all applications performed by our technicians are done in strict accordance with the EPA registered label, giving you the peace of mind you deserve.
Can Water that has Been Treated be Used to Irrigate a Lawn?
In most cases, water that has been treated by our technicians at Crosscreek is safe to be used for lawn irrigation. Should a treatment be administered using a herbicide with an irrigation restriction, our technicians will notify the property owner or property manager prior to treatment.
Are You a Licensed Weed Control Applicator?
Yes. Here at Crosscreek, each of our technicians are fully-licensed by the State of Florida through the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to apply various types of aquatic weed control applications to ponds of all types.
