Algae Defense

 

Algae Defense is fast-acting and works on a broad spectrum of algae. Begin applications early in the spring when water and temperature reaches 60° F and above. Early applications will reduce the amount of Algae Defense needed and reduce the amount of excess nutrients caused by dead algae. Unless steps are taken to reduce the overall nutrients in your pond, multiple applications may be needed for a full season of control.

Algae Defense successfully controls diverse algae types including branched, filamentous, and planktonic species. To obtain optimal control, apply Algae Defense in accordance with label directions at the first appearance of algae bloom. Begin applications early in the spring when water and temperature reaches 60° F and above. Early applications will reduce the amount of Algae Defense needed and reduce the amount of excess nutrients caused by dead algae. 


Get better results by mixing with Cide-Kick Chemical Enhancer. 

Cide-Kick is used to enhance the effects of other liquid chemicals. To effectivey treat weeds and algae, two things must happen.

1st - The water tension has to be broken down to allow the chemical to penetrate the water in the appropriate spot.
2nd - The cuticle fo the weed has to be penetrated for the chemical to be absorbed.

Cide-Kick is a by-product of the citrus industry, a low viscosity oil and is compatible with most aquatic herbicides and algaecides 

Restrictions: Algae Defense may be toxic to Trout if carbonate hardness of treated water is less than 50 ppm. Most surface waters exceed this limit and pose no threat. If in doubt, use a Water Hardness Test Kit
