Orange Oil Spray is an effective way to clear your water's surface of unwanted free floating aquatic matter in irrigation Dams, Farm Dams & Ponds
Orange Oil is an effective way to clear your waters surface of unwanted free floating aquatic matter in irrigation Dams, Farm Dams & Ponds.
It is a natural product based on orange oil extracts that is safe and easy to apply. It does not affect other rooted aquatic plants and treated water is safe for use, as there is no withholding period. Water bodies treated with Orange Oil are safe to use for irrigation and stock watering purposes and it is safe for fish, pets and wildlife as it is not a herbicide.
Orange Oil effects floating aquatic matter by reducing its buoyancy.
In all cases Orange Oil effects the surface tension of the water, thus reducing buoyancy for all types of free floating aquatic matter, making them lose buoyancy and sink in the water column.
Suitable for clearing your waters surface of unwanted free floating aquatic matter in lakes, dams, irrigation channels, water storages and ponds. Depending on the density of the free floating aquatic matter, it is beneficial to apply several light applications, instead of one single heavy application.
Orange Oil is most effective when the coverage is smaller rather than advanced.
To ensure that the waters surface tension is effected, ensure that all for the open waters surface is treated. In areas where there is no free floating aquatic matter, apply lightly but evenly. If the infestation is advanced, an increased product to water mixing ratio can be used to increase the strength of the application. If the infestation is advanced with 90 -100% coverage of the waters surface area, it is recommended that some of the free floating aquatic matter are physically removed to create free water, to allow the free floating aquatic matter to be able to sink effectively.
1L of Orange Oil treats up to 500sqms of water surface area, depending on the density of the floating aquatic matter. To apply mix one part Orange Oil with 100 parts water and spray using a back pack sprayer or hose directly onto the free floating aquatic matter and around the adjoining open water surface.
