Great news! It seems there is hope after all, funnily enough my duckweed problem has been sorted too. After draining the pond i refilled and immediately the duckweed started growing, but i removed as much as i could each day. I got quite a few different plants from the garden centre, but also from my local canal, and now have only a few very small clumps of duckweed left, although it still grows it doesnt thrive and it shows no sign of being a problem.

What is nice about our two ponds i guess is that the problem has been solved naturally, no chemicals etc, just letting nature take its course and finding a solution itself.

Will be very interested to see if you get those caterpillars back next year too, i never knew that moths would have aquatic caterpillars.
