Is there any way to help get rid if pollen on my pond? My pond is about 1.5 acres in the middle of a woods. There is no electric near the pond - so no aeration or diffuser. Any suggestions?

Pollen can be unsightly, but I've never found a way to skim it off. Fortunately, rain makes it disappear.


"Forget pounds and ounces, I'm figuring displacement!"

If we accept that: MBG(+)FGSF(=)HBG(F1)
And we surmise that: BG(>)HBG(F1) while GSF(<)HBG(F1)
Would it hold true that: HBG(F1)(+)AM500(x)q.d.(=)1.5lbGRWT?
PB answer: It depends.

We get cedar pollen at our pond. It's bright green and grainy and floats.

We found two methods work to remove cedar pollen:

1. Make a make shift net (we used old fabric) and skim the pollen from the surface of the pond. This takes a long time and is labor intensive. However if enough adult beverages are consumed during the process it can become quite amusing. We found the best method was to wait until wind blew the pollen to one corner of the pond and net the heck out of it.

2. Wait for nature to take it's course and eventually it will go away.

Unfortunately, pollen removal has been found to be harmful to the Quino Checkerspot Butterfly. Restoration of the glassy, mirror-like surface causes the butterflies to try to mate with their reflections, resulting in unacceptable mortality by drowning. The proper authorities have been notified, and are even now planning to drain the offending BOW and replant the space with buttercups.

Any loss of GSF which might occur is of course completely unintended.

We will never surrender our pond to the dreaded butterfly.











They will have to pry my butterfly net from cold dying hands.









And put it back in my butterfly net holster that is attached to my Brazilian Cut Neoprene Cod Piece.

ok i'll be the straight man........cut the trees down......j/k

like jhap mentioned, i get alot from pines and oaks as well, i let nature take its course, on my pond it helps keep the FA from forming for a time cause it helps block light. i would rather have the pollen than FA.


GSF are people too!

You can stir it up manually and it will sink.
