Hamilton's of Ortonville, Inc. believes that the sale of aquatic herbicides and algaecides requires responsible product stewardship prior to, during and after the sale. The concept of responsible product stewardship requires the end user to understand the proper product to use for the target plant, when to apply it, how to apply it, what to expect, when to expect it, product and water use restrictions and the proper disposal of the empty product container. It is our belief that this requires, at minimum, research on the local and state laws and hazards of any products they use on ponds and property. For this reason, Hamilton's of Ortonville, Inc. has made the decision not to offer online sales through our website of chemicals and herbicides.
Please utilize the product information supplied by our website and read product labels thoroughly as a guide and simply contact us to discuss your management goals and specific product requirements.
