Herbicide-Free Weed Control in Southern Vermont
A Safer Alternative to Weed Management
Instead of relying on toxic herbicides for controlling your weeds, wouldn’t it be nice to have a 100% eco-friendly, super-effective method of getting the job done? That’s why Wise Oak uses Foamstream from Weedingtech, a company based in the UK that is responsible for designing Foamstream equipment. How does it work? It’s all about heat! Hot water that is kept hot longer through foam covers the plant and heats it for long enough that it penetrates the waxy outer layer, travels down the stem, and into the roots, killing or causing the weed to die back. This thermal method of weed management is a fast, effective, and environmentally-responsible way of dealing with weeds.

How Foamstream Works
Foamstream is a herbicide-free weed control solution designed to kill unwanted vegetation through heat. The heat is delivered through hot water insulated by a natural, biodegradable foam. Through precision application of the hot foam — which is made with a blend of ingredients, including coconut oil, wheat, rapeseed oil, and potatoes — weeds are killed and surrounding vegetation is left undamaged. The foam functions as a thermal blanket, heating the plant long enough to kill it. In the foam, there is a wetting agent, helping to break down the weed’s cell walls and kill it faster. Depending on how big the weeds are, it usually only requires a few applications to sterilize seeds, reach the tap root, and achieve complete eradication. By sterilizing seeds and spores, Foamstream can lead to a net reduction in weed coverage over time.
Foamstream is also an effective way of sanitizing and cleaning, without the risk of harming surrounding ecosystems with the use of damaging chemicals. No matter the weather or time of year, Foamstream can help you achieve lasting results, with a 95% kill rate for your weeds and reliable deep cleaning results.
When it comes to weeds, Foamstream takes fewer treatment cycles and ultimately less cost for you at the end of the day than most other methods. What is more, weed control through a thermal method like Foamstream also has the added benefit of reducing the number of weeds you have in the long-term, as the heat sterilizes seeds and spores that have yet to germinate. The results of using this thermal method of weed control are instantly visible. Ready to try Foamstream? Get in touch with Wise Oak today!
