Bio Boost Muck Digester Pellets can stop and even reverse the buildup of muck on the bottom of lakes and ponds. Bio Boost Muck Digester Pellets consist of a slow-release customized blend of bacteria strains chosen specifically for their muck control capabilities within lakes and ponds.

Bio Boost Muck Digester Pellets work on bottom muck so you don't have to.

Each Muck Digester Pellet is infused with a broad trace mineral base and an organic catalyst to increase the productivity of the beneficial bacteria in each pellet. Muck Digester Pellets quickly sink to penetrate and degrade pond muck by stimulating naturally occurring bacteria, delivering essential bio-stimulants and adding indigenous sludge-eating cultures.

Muck Digester

The bacteria strains choosen for our Muck Digester Pellets where specifically selected because of bacteria's abitlity to  digest animal, waterfowl and fish waste; as well as plant material; odor causing volatiles and the binders of organic contaminates which contribute to muck buildup. When consuming the organic materials that become muck, Bio Boost Muck Digester Pellets microbes help to naturally control and reduce the volume of contaminates on a lake or pond bottom.

A simple, cost-effective method for organic muck management.

Additional Benefits

Consumes nutrients Reduce up to 70% of sludge and much

Before & After Examples:

Before muck digester pellets

With four feet of muck and numerous weeds, this pond was the neighborhood eyesore. A double dose of Bio Boost Enzyme 300 and Bio Boost Muck Digester Pellets combined with a herbicide application turned this pond around. Muck levels were down to one foot by fall.

After using muck digester pellets

With out of hand hydrodictyon (a hard to control algae) this pond was a headache for the homeowners. By adding aeration, Enzyme 300 blended with an algaecide/herbicide, along with our Bio Boost Summer Blend and muck digester pellets, this pond cleaned up like never before. Rather than just killing the hydrodictyon we disrupted its life cycle.


Bio Boost Muck Digester Pellets are a dense product designed to be "tossed in" and  and drive the active ingredients down to the muck layer. This insures that the bacterial dosage is not consumed in the water column before it reaches the muck. As the pellets sink into the muck the bacteria produce enzymes that speed up the breakdown of organic waste. They contain safe and beneficial bacteria, and will not harm aquatic species, fish, waterfowl, or people. This product will also reduce sulfide and mercaptan odors found in muck.

Allow two - four weeks between each applications as listed below. Application can be added to site-specific locations. Bio Boost Muck Digester Pellets may be used early in the spring of the year to "jump - start" a pond or lake's bacteria populations.

Use four days after algaecide or herbicide treatments to accelerate the degradation of the dying algae and/or plant materials.

Temperature Range: Begin applications once surface water temperatures reach 60° F (17°C) or higher. The warmer it is the faster they reproduce and digest pond muck.

Site Applications

Lakes: Bio Boost Muck Digester Pellets can be distributed into a lake by a fertilizer spreader attached to the back of the boat. Bio Boost Muck Digester Pellets are typically 1/10th to 1/20th of the cost of dredging.

Decorative Ponds: Bio Boost Muck Digester Pellets are a nice way to keep the pond in check and keep muck to a minimum.

Retention Ponds: Retention ponds start out nice and beautiful and after a few years they become loaded with algae, plants and muck. Bio Boost Muck Digester Pellets are an easy way to help balance them out and reduce muck. These pellets will also work well in retention ponds that may have a lot of road salt. A biologically cleaned pond is a happy pond. A mechanically cleaned pond can often be unhappy for some time as it tries to find biological balance.

Golf Courses: Golf courses can get a lot of muck due to runoff, high nutrient loadings, and leaf and grass waste. Bio Boost Muck Digester Pellets are an easy and affordable ways to keep golf course ponds free of muck and more importantly to help keep them biologically balanced.

Shorelines: Used by homeowners to reduce muck around the shoreline. Just sprinkle some pellets around a dock once a month and let them sink into the muck. Month by month the lake bottom will clean up. Many customers have called them little vacuum cleaners as they see the muck reduce.

Aquaculture: Used to degrade fish poop that accumulates in the bottom of a pond. Bio Boost Muck Digester Pellets have proven to be economical and efficient for fish farmers who want to minimize muck accumulation as an alternative to dredging.

Common Questions and Answers

Q: How long do Bio Boost Muck Digester Pellets take to work?

A: Customers can usually see benefits in a couple of weeks.

Q: How much will the muck go down?

A: It really depends on the muck composition, water temperature and water movement. Typically customers will see 40-80% of the muck gone over the course of a summer.

Q: Does the muck ever increase?

A: Early in treatment as bacterial activity increases muck can get fluffier and less dense, this is temporary. For the best judge of progress measure initially and later in the fall when temperature cools off.

Q: How do Bio Boost Muck Digester Pellets work?

A: Bio Boost Muck Digester Pellets sink into the muck and come alive. Muck is high in organics (food), nitrogen and phosphorous. With these conditions they will grow. If they are applied near a shoreline that gets good wave action this works dissolved oxygen into the muck and they will work faster.

Q: Where do Bio Boost Muck Digester Pellets work best?

A: In organic matter that is humus and has started the degradation process. In laymen's terms if you step in the muck and it's gooey this is a good application. Works on dead leaves, dead weeds, dead grass, fish poop (like in aquaculture) and waterfowl waste.

Q: Where do Bio Boost Muck Digester Pellets not work?

A: Bio Boost Muck Digester Pellets do not work on rock, sand, gravel or sticks. They work slowly on oak leaves, pine needles and other organic matter that is high in lignin (woody).

Q: Will Bio Boost Muck Digester Pellets harm fish?

A: No, if they eat the bullets they will simply pass through them.

Q: Is there a scientific way to see how much muck will degrade?

A: Have a lab run a TVSS (total volatile suspended solids test). This will tell you what % is organic and biodegradable.

Q: Why are Bio Boost Muck Digester Pellets better than other pellets?

A: #1 We make them small so they cover a lot of surface area.

#2 The bacteria in the pellets are indigenous in many lakes. They are not just from a test tube.

#3 The pellets contain a broad spectrum of organisms. The broader the spectrum the better the results.
