Does anyone know of a chemical that will kill pond weed moss and cat tails?
The weeds and grass are so thick in my pond that is impossible to fish it from the bank. I would appreciate any advice and comments

Aquathol K is effective for treating American Pondweed - the weed with the narrow pointed leaves that float on the surface in shallow areas. However, the product is too expensive to treat ponds larger than 1/2 acre. As for weed moss - Cutrine Plus works pretty well on Filamentous Algae, but not sure about Chara (Muskgrass). I've had cattails in profusion in a couple of ponds, but have never attempted to treat it. The cattails slowly disappeared after a few years. Maybe the Aquathol K that was used to treat the pondweed also had an effect on the cattails.

Cattail question posed here just a couple weeks ago.

How to get rid of Cattails.

Not exactly sure what you are calling Pond Moss, but likely filamentous Algea. Cutrine is your best chemical option. Tilapia can control it if you stock in high enough qty's. You can always visit this site to determine what you have and then methods to treat it.
