While this winter has yet to really present itself in Southwest Michigan, you’ll still want to be ready for when it gets here. A few seasons ago here in Kalamazoo, we had many calls in the spring from owners about the loss of their fish. Winter fish loss happens…and it happens to even the most meticulous pond owners. Here are some tips on preventing winter fish loss in Kalamazoo.
This is our number one winter fish care product to use in your pond when it starts to freeze over. During the cold winter months you need to keep a hole open in the ice in order for proper gas exchange to occur. If you let the pond ice over with no hole, and allow it to stay that way for the duration of the season, you can almost guarantee not many of the fish will make it through to spring. The pond de-icer/heater is simple and easy to use, making it our number one choice to help prevent fish loss.
