There has always been a debate about how to manage the aquatic weeds in a lake or pond: applying chemical herbicides or harvesting. Chemical applications of lake weed killers such as Copper Sulfate, 2-4D, Hydrothol or Aquathol are oftentimes frowned upon due to the unknown long term effects. Commercial weed harvesting can also be negative because the equipment can cause stray plant fragments that replant themselves elsewhere in the body of water.

However, there is an efficient and economical alternative tool that is less invasive than most other options. This unique tool for aquatic plant management has been re-introduced in August of 2009 as “The Lake Weed Shear” (available at http://www.WeedersDigest.com). The WeedShear was originally designed for the benefit of professional lake and pond managers but has since been made available for individual waterfront owners and is now distributed through qualified marine and aquatic dealers.

The Lake Weed Shear lake weed cutter has a unique 49″ wide V shaped razor cutting blades and the Y shaped handle allow the operator to easily cut a 30′ long, 4′ wide swath with each toss. The WeedShear is light enough to toss from the shore, dock or pier, yet heavy enough to sink to the bottom regardless of the depth. The razor-like cutter blades literally skim the bottom cutting all weeds at the base as the tool is retrieved with the attached 30′ leash.

The Lake Weed Shear is distributed by qualified aquatic and marine related retailers and affiliates and is aggressively seeking additional distributors nationally and internationally.
