Thirteen years ago when we built our retirement home in the country, we had no neighbors. But like everywhere, folks are moving in.
The tank in front of my house often gets scum over it that can be controlled with cornmeal. But this year, it looks as if we have some chemical runoff from someone's hayfield. It's really thick and green. We plan to do some aeration in it ASAP.
We have 4 other stock tanks that don't have this problem. This one is not as deep as the others. Could the drought be part of the prob?
Any recommendations? By the way, none of the large animals drink from this pond--only the dogs, birds, and small animals. It's fenced off.
Can you ID the problem? Is it a plant? Is it an algae?
We had a duckweed problem for many years that just got worse. Last year we gave up looking for an oganic solution and bought an expensive herbicide just for duckweed. So far no duckweed. It looks a little green from algae but at least the horse don't have green beards from drinking the water.
