Educational Webinar: 10 Tips to Prevent Deadly Toxic Algae
Have you ever wondered if the water you drink or the lake in which you swim, fish and boat could have a negative effect on your health? Harmful Algae Blooms (HABs) are toxic assemblages of algae or cyanobacteria that can develop due to runoff containing fertilizers, animal waste, grass trimmings and other nutrient-rich organic materials. Not only are these blooms unsightly, but they can also pose a serious threat to the health of humans, pets and wildlife. New research, highlighted in the film Toxic Puzzle, Hunt For The Hidden Killer, also shows that exposure to HABs could be connected to the development of neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and ALS. Good news though! Prevention of these toxic blooms is possible; discover how with our industry experts.
During this live webinar, recorded in spring 2018, our industry experts shared their knowledge of toxic algae and tips on how to prevent HABs in lakes and ponds.
