Default Moss algae killer

Previously used all sorts to kill moss & algae on back garden paving
slabs a couple of times a year.
Now wife has got a small terrier puppy so need to be careful what I uae.
Any recommendations for killing the moss/algae that is safe for dogs.
We can probably keep dog off the area for say 4 hours if necessary.

You can get BAC50 which you "paint" or "roller" on. Let this soak and
dry into the paving. Then that should be safe for the dog....

The websites says :
affordable Äď currently less than ¬£30

errr, no it isn't. On Amazon it is £42.50 for 5L, and on ebay, well, you
take your pick as it's anything upto £100 for 5L

You can of course by smaller amounts, for less money, but not as economical.

Ebay average around £40 for 5L but one or two sellers closer to £30

Before the first lockdown I purchased 5L for £24 including postage and
this was around the average price on Ebay. During the first lockdown the
price rose by around x3 and fell back again to around £30 for 5L after
the lockdown. During the second lockdown the price rose again.

Actually up to £1000 for 5L which usually means they have zero stock but
want to keep the listing active for future use.

Use a pressure washer? Even if they don't get your dog, I dread to think what
chemicals will do once they wash off the stones.

Covered a short while back on a thread about polycarbonate roof.

The BAC chemical had a warning not to let it into any drains or water
courses.

Which may be difficult.

You can still buy certain chemicals in reasonable bulk quantities BUT
you will find that there is no mention of some of their previous
specific uses because they have been banned from such use.

Wasn't it actually the unnaturally straight variety that was banned, as
it blatantly and offensively failed the 'radius of curvature' spec?

I find that it's listed as: "Eisend√ľnger Moosverdr√§nger 25 kg". That

Local agricultural/horsey dealer sells 10Kg Ferrous Sulphate
for about £12.

Downside is that it tends to kill the earthworms, AFAIK. Fine
if you object to worm casts on your pristine lawn but they are
useful for aerating the soil, which arguably helps to deter moss
in the first place.

After a bit of looking for it, I now see that 25kg bags of ferrous
sulphate ARE available, for typically £30 - plus various charges for
delivery (some reasonable, some extortionate). I reckon that something
like £35 total won't break the bank, and will last me a year or three.

My first google.co.uk hit with ferrous sulphate 25kg is:


https://www.keithsingletonhorticultu...te-monohydrate

which at £18.95 + £6.50 carriage[1] (all including VAT) is a bit cheaper.

I'm sure with a further look you can get cheaper still.

[1] says:
Our delivery costs are calculated by weight (KG):
ENGLAND WALES & PARTS OF SOUTH SCOTLAND (MAINLAND)
up to 25KG - £6.50
So not sure if 25kg would be £6.50!

ENGLAND WALES & PARTS OF SOUTH SCOTLAND (MAINLAND)
up to 25KG - £6.50
So not sure if 25kg would be £6.50!


Good find! Their location took a minute or two to find (although the
address in the photo of the bag provided a subtle clue!) - and I see
they are in Cumbria. Deep, darkest South Bucks is a long way to hump it.
[Other suppliers are also nearly as far 'oop North West' - or in
Northern Ireland.] Will investigate true cost. I see that they admit
that it might be lumpy (no problem for me), which is one of the
complaints made by reviewers of other suppliers.

The next time I wanted a bag I was told the EU had listed it
as hazardous (25kg might give you a hernia??), and you could only get it
in tiny 1kg boxes - which cost around 7 pounds.


Eh? In Germany: 25 kg bag of ferrous sulphate 15,95 EUR plus 6,90 postage,
orderable online, delivery in 3-4 days, as of today.

In Germany, EU regulations are strictly for other countries


I call "bull****".
