Providing eco-friendly lake weed removal services is important to us as a company because we want our actions to have a positive impact in the world. This is why Tom Suerth started the first SCUBA By-The-Root removal service in Minnesota. He wanted to introduce a process that would provide excellent results, and protect the lakes. Spending time on lakes in Minnesota is what makes summer, summer! We want to ensure that the lakes are protected and will be usable for years and years to come! Below we have discussed what makes our company so eco-friendly:
The Process Itself
Our process is performing SCUBA By-The-Root weed removal services on Minnesota lakes. You may be wondering what that service entails. It consists of having a team of scuba divers dive down to the bottom of your lake and pull out the lake weeds by their root. This ensures instant and longer-lasting results.
This process is eco-friendly because we use humans to target the different weeds specifically. Our divers use their expertise to single out the weeds for extraction. Other less targeted methods may cause mass removal of every lake weed and aquatic animal that is living within the area. There are some weeds, such as Chara and Eelgrass, that we like to leave untouched because it is a vital part of the ecosystem. Using chemicals can affect certain weeds that maybe should not be touched and can affect the animals living within the area.
Removing the weeds by having divers swim to the bottom also allows them to remove any dangerous objects. This ensures that people and animals swimming in the water are not injured.
This makes our method the best and safest for your lake!
The Products We Use
The products we use, such as muck pellets, are also eco-friendly. Our muck pellets are organic, and contain safe and beneficial bacteria that will not harm aquatic species, fish, waterfowl, or people. The lake will still be able to maintain the ecosystem, and the animals, and people, who have interactions with the lake, will stay healthy.
Disposal of Weeds
Instead of letting the weeds decay and sink to the bottom of the lake when they are extracted, we dispose of them ourselves. We gather the weeds and donate them to local places in our community so they can use the weeds as fertilizer. This is making an environmental impact because we dispose of the weeds properly and allow people to reuse them in a new way.
