Traditional Dose: Feed 10-lb to 25-lb per surface-acre once per month depending on depth of muck or extent of surface debris.
Super Dose: For ponds or lakes where they would like to degrade up to 1 foot per month. Feed 50# per acre once per month.
- Temperature Range: Works best when water temperature is 60° F (17°C) to 130°F (54°C). The warmer it is the faster they reproduce and digest sludge.
Lakes: Pond Pellets can be distributed into a lake by a fertilizer spreader attached to the back of the boat. Pond Pellets are typically 1/10th to 1/20th of the cost of dredging.
Decorative Ponds: Pond 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 floating organic matter and muck. Pond 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. Pond Pellets are an easy and affordable way 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.
Fish Farm Aquaculture: Use to degrade fish waste that accumulates in the bottom of a pond. Pond Pellets have proven to be economical and efficient for fish farmers who want to minimize muck accumulation as an alternative to dredging.
Part of the process of creating the Pond Pellets bacterial formula was looking for the strains that grew the fastest and had the best synergy while degrading the dead leaves and weeds, grass, fish and duck waste, and other detritus that makes up pond muck. The graph below depicts a study of the germination rates of different bacteria in pond muck. Data like this is used in the constant process of improving formulations.
