Reduce invasive aquatic weed growth

A rapidly growing lake management issue is the invasion and proliferation of submersed aquatic weeds. Since the first SolarBee installation for lake application in 2000, over 30 independent lake owners have reported that several species of aquatic weeds, including Eurasian watermilfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum), curly leaf pond weed (Potamogeton crispus), sago pondweed (Potamogeton pectinatus), coontail (Ceratophyllum demersum), and American elodea (Elodea canadensis), have diminished in their lakes even as water clarity significantly improved. It appears that the return flow of oxygen-rich water back to the SolarBee oxidizes lake sediments creating an ammonia-nitrogen limitation of aquatic weed growth. This working hypothesis is entirely consistent with the scientific literature, as well as observations in all 300+ lakes worldwide where SolarBees are installed.
