Applied Biochemists Copper Sulfate Crystals is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Fast on Pond Scum ... We bought this after seeing a video from Texas A&M that said spray the dissolved solution directly on the pond scum. The next day the pond scum was turning brown and all of it moving towards the shore. 5 gallons of spray and I only used 4 pounds of crystals. Very economical solution to pond scum! It is also good for your plants when diluted; 1 pound to 5 gallons.

Would this control the cattails around a pond and not hurt the fish in it?

Asked by: Southtexan
Copper sulfate crystals are used to control different types of algae, not cattails. To control cattails you would need to use a glyphosate based product (that kills to the root). We recommend using our Crystal Blue Cattplex (SKU1049009). Glyphosate will not hurt the fish if you follow the dosing instructions.

How long does it take before results?

Asked by: Wrisley
Copper sulfate provides results within 24-48 hrs. Any longer they should use Cutrine Plus due to water hardness.

Will this work on redwood tree roots?

This product may work for that application, but we cannot guarantee it. This product is primarily intended for root control in sewer lines.
