Bump.

Getting that time of year, if a person wants to use pond dye as a tool in the FA remediation toolbox, to watch for the greening up on the bottom of the pond.

Thought I would bring this post up instead of making a new one.

I was thinking of adding a dye for the winter to help prevent predation from GBH, Osprey, and everything else that wants a quick meal. Wondered about using it for winter protection and allowing it to fade out by March, then back to normal. Also would you think a black dye increase the winter water temps any?

I'm not sure about the water temp. I know that in a local public lake the shallow areas where the sunlight could get to the muck bottom had 4°F-5°F higher water temp than the rest of the lake in the Spring.

As for the black dye, plan on using about 30% more to limit visibility as compared to the blue dye. For some reason the black dye that we have used didn't seem to be as "dense" as the blue. Both dyes from the same mfg.

So I never thought about using dye for preditor mitigation. During the winter the Bald Eagles love eating amurs and trout. Have you folks had any luck with that. My eagles are here about every other day for hours on end. The GBH is more a pest in seasons other than winter here in NE Ohio.

Be thankful an Osprey has not shown up with your Eagle. They share their time at my pond.


Do not judge me by the politicians in my City, State or Federal Government.
