Hand Harvesting

AIM dive teams are trained in a variety of hand-harvesting methods designed to handle any type of milfoil growth encountered. Using these techniques we can accurately attack an infestation quickly and thoroughly. Our team sizes vary based on the job size and littoral zone width in a particular body of water. For larger lakes we use an 8 diver team with two surface support personnel. Teams of four and two divers are also used on smaller lakes or on large lakes that are in the “maintenance phase” of their milfoil infestation.

We have found that extensive on the job training results in efficient harvesting. Our divers are well versed in many forms of underwater communication, dive equipment and swim patterns. As a result any sudden changes in their work environment can be quickly adapted to allowing for consistent productivity.
