    Q
    Can I use Cutrine Plus directly on algae mats?
    I have a two acre pond with algae around most of the shore about 8ft out. Can I spray the algae mat directly to eliminate the algae without treating the entire pond? I would like to spray the algae in sections to eliminate any possible harm to the fish.
    A

    Yes, Cutrine Plus can be used on algae mats. You do not want to treat the entire pond all at once so that you do not harm the fish. You will use 1.5-2 gallons per surface acre of pond. You will treat 1/2 of the pond and wait 2 weeks and do the second treatment. Please see the product label for complete application instructions.

    Q
    Can I use Cutrine Plus to control out-of-control algae?
    I have (2) 1/2+acre ponds which are overrun with bottom growing algea, which consumes the pond. There are several types of fish in the ponds and I have livestock in both fields where the ponds are, so it must be safe for animals and fish. I have tried numourous solutions, but all that is empty is my wallet.
    A

    Cutrine Plus Algaecide is one of our most popular algaecides, effective against the most popular varieties of pond algae. Please be aware this and other algaecides with copper should not be used in water containing koi, trout, or goldfish, or in water that sheep or goats may drink. We would encourage you to be sure that you have correctly identified the algae or plant that you are treating to ensure you are using the best products. You can find a good resource at pondplantid.com or by contacting your local Department of Natural Resources.

    Q
    How do you figure application rate of Cutrine Plus Algaecide for small Koi ponds?
    I have 2 ponds. One is about 20 foot long 3 foot wide stream only 1.5 foot deep. Another 20 x 15 only 2 foot deep. How much product to treat both at one application?
    A

    You should not use Cutrine Plus Aglaecide for small ponds containing koi fish.  This is the verbiage from the product label:  This product may be toxic to trout and other species of fish. Fish toxicity is dependent upon the hardness of water. Do not use in water containing trout if the carbonate hardness of water does not exceed 50 ppm. Do not use in waters containing Koi and hybrid goldfish. Not intended for use in small volume, garden pond systems.

    Unfortunately we do not carry an algaecide to be used in small koi ponds.  We recommend you talk to a local koi pond supplier.

    Q
    Is it safe to use Cutrine Plus in a pond that we shower and use for laundry?
    A

    Per the manufacturer Cutrine Plus Algaecide is safe for all potable water sources used for showering, swimming, laundry, irrigation, etc. The only restrictions would be if you had trout in the pond or if you were using the water for sheep as they both are sensitive to copper.

    Q
    I plan to use the Cutrine Plus Algaecide on my Florida roof to control algae.
    Although it is not approved for such use, I can legally do it. Also, it is more environmentally friendly than using chlorine. How many ounces per gallon of water would you expect to provide good algae control on a concrete tile roof?
    A
    We apologize but we are not able to give instructions for off label uses of the Cutrine Plus Algaecide.  We would recommend contacting the manufacturer directly, Applied Bio Chemists can be reached at 1-800-558-5106
