Aquatic Weeds | Water Plants
Our aquatic weed control program has been designed to achieve the highest level control with the safest and lowest volume of herbicide possible. Our method of control is designed to provide treatment when it will be most effective, taking season, temperature, growth stage of weeds and many other factors into account. Of course, every lake’s needs are different, and we adjust our treatments to suit each lake’s individual needs. Also, when dealing with a large system of lakes, the system must be considered as a whole in addition to the needs of an individual lake. We have maintained lakes in numerous communities that contain 50 or more lakes for many years, and that level of experience sets us apart. We treat weeds proactively, i.e. early and often, so that we get control of the weeds before they become a problem.
Our wetland and preserve maintenance focuses on efficient control of nuisance and exotic species while being careful not to damage existing native vegetation. After all, the preservation of native plants is the goal. We do not become too aggressive in our methodology in order to assure we control only the targeted weeds because we understand that due care is necessary to preserve beneficial native plants and to allow for lush growth of desirable wetland plants.

It is our philosophy to educate our clients about every aspect of lake management because we believe that an educated lake customer will be better able to make the right decisions for their lakes. And, Lake Masters will work hand in hand with our customers to help design a treatment plan that works best to fulfill their needs while acting in the best interests of the environment. We also don’t mind answering questions from general public who are not yet our customers. We do that because we are dedicated to the proposition that any time that we can help someone better understand what is going on in their lake we are providing a service that will improve the environment.
Golden Algae Control | Golden Algae Kills Fish
Lake Masters is also proud of the fact that we have a specialized expertise regarding the control of Golden Algae, prymnesium parvum. Although uncommon in Florida until a few years ago, this devastating toxic algae can cause severe fish kills unless it is controlled. Lake Masters has been a pioneer in the control of Golden Algae, and numerous times we have prevented minor fish kills from becoming major ones. Please feel free to give us a call if you notice an unexplained fish kill, especially if it occurs in brackish water during the cool months. We may be able to help!
