I would buy again
Comments about : Mini Barley Bales, Set of 2:
These little balls really helped to clear my pond of some algae that was trying to take over. And as a side note they work great for saving the bees that fall into the pond while trying to get a drink.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Bird water fountain, I did prefer the squares when we could get them, and just replaced the barley straw. But since you no longer have them available, these will work.

I added the barley roll to the pond just before a large storm. It seemed to help with the muck

Seems to clear the water pretty good, but has to be taken out about once a week to dry out.
Doesn't appear to work for already established algae.
from Colchester VT
I have. Green string algae in a larger pond and brown string algae in a small pond with constantly added fresh water. These rye bales did not touch either. Help!,
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I would use this product again
from Portland, Or.
Mini Barley Bails are very easy to use. Simply float bail in small pond and within a short time the water will clear up and suspended algae clumps together and sinks to the bottom where it can be suctioned up.
seems to keep the algae down.
