Use Wattles For Effective Erosion Control

Wattles, also known as straw worms, bio-logs, straw noodles, or straw tubes are made from weed free straw and held together by a plastic netting. These standard wattles are available in the following specifications:

  • 9 inches in diameter
  • 25 feet long
  • 14 wattles come on a pallet

Another popular option is the Rice Straw Bio Wattles, which are the enclosed in burlap making them very durable yet biodegradable over a long period of time. These Rice Straw Bio Wattles are available in the following specifications:

  • 9 inches in diameter
  • 25 feet long
  • 12 bio wattles come on a pallet

The mulch used to fill our wattles is weed free and sized for maximum life, filtering capabilities and overall effectiveness. In addition, we can provide all the stakes you need to secure your wattles.

Wattles are a cost effective, storm water treatment product designed to filter sediment-laden runoff while reducing hydraulic energy. Straw wattles are encased in a heavy duty, knitted cylindrical tube making them lightweight and easy to install. 

Our wattles offer the perfect solution for controlling sediment loss due to erosion and reducing water velocity on slopes. As well as protecting ponds and streams from storm water runoff. 


Other Applications For Wattles Include:

  • Used as check dams in channels and ditches, drain inlet protection and perimeter sediment control.
  • Breaking up slope length
  • Reducing overland flow
  • Minimizing erosion
