I'm gonna bet that if a person honestly wanted duckweed in their pond, for whatever good reason, that the duckweed gods would deny them...duckweed only comes to those that don't want it to begin with. lol

A am curious as to why one would desire the plant by the truckload. Maybe they are looking for the work of cleaning others ponds, to feed livestock (I've heard that's a thing), as a sewage effluent, or just to attract ducks.

Maybe used to make meatless burgers for those city folk. Something has to be in them.

I bet Tilapia would do well on it.
As I understand, it is high in protein.

I tell ya,, the fellow claims to be from Texas,,, sometimes I wonder about them guys!
As for duckweed,, I know a few sewage lagoons that would probably supply him with several truckloads apiece,, he's more then welcome to help himself,, I might even help out with the shipping costs.

I am a duckhunter. As the name implies, ducks, especially gadwalls as well as wood ducks and wigeon just love the stuff. As some have mentioned, duckweed seems to only grow where you dont want it. I have a difficult time keeping the duckweed on my ponds due to water chemistry, overflow, wind blowing it on the bank, and ducks eating it.

Welcome to the forums duck...! You've come to the right place, as you can tell there are a few DW haters among us.

Good luck on your search.

It's only my 2 cents, but from what I've read...duck weed likes high nutrient levels in the BOW. Maybe you could work on that aspect of the water chemistry and gain some ground too.

If I had a truckload I sure would let you come get it. My apologies if I offended you the facebook joker comment. That was wrong of me.

Welcome Duck

We meant no harm just pickin! Have you tried running a floating barrier or barricade to hold the duckweed where you want it?

Well, if anyone in my area does want to get rid of some duckweed, just let me know. I was hoping to get a few truckloads between Nov 1 and Thanksgiving.

thanks

How well does it survive transport? If all 10,000 of us pond boss members each shipped him a medium sized USPS flat rate box of duckweed he might have a few truck loads when he was done?
