A safe, natural biodegradation accelerator
SoilandWater.com Bugs! COMPOSTER
is a unique product offering the synergy of eight
endo-spore forming, gram-positive Bacillus strains
(which rapidly activate to produce large quantities of
protease, esterase, lipase, amylase, xylanase, urease
and cellulase enzymes) supported by raw cellulase and
xylanase enzymes, nutrients and micro-nutrients, to
provide a safe, natural way to accelerate the
biodegradation of lawn waste, leaves and woody
materials, in central municipal or commercial
composting sites and homeowner's gardens.
Recently improved with higher spore count, and four
new thermophilic bacterial strains. When used as
directed in composting, SoilandWater.com Bugs!
Composter will provide high yields of natural humus
within only 30 to 60 days, which may be used to
stimulate plant growth, improve plant health, color,
stability and resistance to disease. The spore forming
bacterial strains in SoilandWater.com Bugs!
Composter can survive, dormant, in the compost
through hot, dry weather and over the winter;
reactivating whenever conditions moderate, allowing
the process to continue with minimal supplemental

FEATURES AND BENEFITS:
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
For Large-Site Composting, for each surface-acre, mix 2.5 or 3 pounds of SoilandWater.com
Bugs! Composter with 500 to 600 gallons of UNCHLORINATED water once a week, and spray
with a hydromulcher or similar spray equipment. For maximum decomposition speed, the
compost should be turned weekly when the temperature reaches 140 F, for aeration, and should
be kept moist (50-70% moisture values) at all times.
Above ground enclosures made of wooden slats or wire screening will accelerate the speed of
decomposition, by increasing aeration. In-ground pits are less desirable, because they perform
more slowly. Avoid biomass treated with herbicides when using this product. If compost waste is
mostly green-waste, add sufficient ammonium nitrate (NH4NO3) to maintain a carbon to
nitrogen (C/N) ratio of 30 or less (bacteria consume 15-30 parts of carbon for each part of
nitrogen, when digesting typical compost).
Supplementation with ammonium nitrate will not be necessary if the waste includes a sufficient
quantity of food and animal waste to balance high carbon-low nitrogen waste, such as peanut
hulls, wheat straw and sawdust.
Alternative Calculation for Windrow Composting: apply 50 - 125 g/yd3 on days 1 and 8.
For Application to Agricultural Fields After Harvest: Cut down and chop the leftover
vegetation, spreading it in a thin layer over the entire field. Measure the carbon to nitrogen ratio
and add ammonium nitrate sufficient to maintain a ratio of C/N of 30 or less. For each
surface-acre, apply 2.5 pounds of SoilandWater.com Bugs! Composter with 500 gallons of
unchlorinated water and 3 gallons of Bio-Nutrient 9, our soil amendment humic extract, which
will both decrease the time necessary to break down the vegetation, and make the nutrients more
bioavailable to the plants grown on the next crop on the field. After three weeks, use a hay
thrashing machine to turn the vegetation, and apply another dose of the mixture. Repeat in one
month. If the climate is very dry, add sufficient water (preferably through irrigation) to maintain
50-70% moisture levels. You should be able to plant your next crop within 3 months after
beginning treatment, and your crop should be healthier.
For Home Use: Mix 1 to 2 ounces of SoilandWater.com Bugs! Composter with 1 gallon of
unchlorinated warm water. Stir well and let stand for 30 minutes prior to applying to each layer of
new clippings or leaves and wet the entire surface after application. If composter is very small,
thoroughly mix the compost daily to promote faster breakdown, otherwise weekly turning and
watering is sufficient.
