At least in ponds. I was at my local pet shop that also does a whole lot of business selling pond equipment and supplies. They were stuffing mesh bags with straw and I thought that was kind of strange. They told me it helps control algae in ponds. Does anybody have any first hand experience with it. This site claim one inch of straw per gallon works.
