How It Works

Simply toss the skimmer into the water from the bank.
The bottom bar will sink and the top bar will float creating a half circle. Pull the skimmer back towards yourself.
Grab the four ropes and pull the skimmer out of the water. Dump the weed into a wheelbarrow for disposal.

Advantages of physical removal

  • Removes extra nutrients caused by the breakdown of rotting vegetation thereby reducing the likelihood of future outbreaks.
  • A dense coverage consumes a lot of oxygen leaving little left for fish and other aquatic organisms. Avoids fish kills by ensuring adequate oxygen levels remain.
  • Removes habitat for breeding mosquitoes.

Adds Advantage to Spray Treatments

  • Combining physical removal with an aquatic herbicide treatment can greatly increase the effectiveness of any weed-killers you’re using.
  • Easy to use
  • Ecologically benign alternative to traditional herbicide treatments
  • Specifically designed for Duckweeds
