Pond algae is just one of those things that most people want to get rid of. If you’ve had it show up you probably know what I mean. First there’s the shock of a once pretty pond turning into a green and slimy mess. Maybe it will even smell bad which leads to even more […]
It’s impossible these days to go through an entire summer without hearing of some warning about a pond with algae in it. Often the title might say something like “Toxic Algae Found In Lake” or something similar. Just this week two new articles came out, one from Kansas, and one from Long Island New York, […]

Compared to how common algae blooms are across the country in the summer months, you don’t hear about the potential hazards of algae all that much. But a recent article in Beef Magazine caught my eye because it involved the death of four cows that were killed from contact or most likely ingestion with a […]
For some reason, there are times when a pond has green water and anything you try to clear it simply doesn’t seem to work. Such was the case with a frustrated small pond owner who corresponded with me over the last few months. Marge is a pond friend who’s kept in close touch as she […]
