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
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.
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.
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
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.

& Water Features
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
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
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
A: Customers can usually see benefits
in a couple of weeks.
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
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.
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.
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.
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
A: No, if they eat the bullets they
will simply pass through them.
A: Have a lab run a TVSS (total
volatile suspended solids test). This will tell you what % is
organic and biodegradable.
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.
