Application Directions:
Your Soilandwater.com service professional will prescribe both the initial application and the weekly maintenance doses taking into consideration such factors as the size of the particular waterbody, total weekly inflow and outflow, amount of shade vs. sun, fish and fowl loadings, and levels of pesticides or other contaminants. Be aware that a heavy rainfall may bring significant contamination with its runoff, and a one-time dosage equal to the initial application may be needed to restore control. Mechanical aeration may be needed where natural aeration is deficient. For optimum bacterial performance, hydrate Bugs!® Clear-up before application in the evening. Thoroughly mix each pound of dry product with two gallons of warm (approx.70 deg.F) water from the waterbody to be treated. Allow the mixture to hydrate for two hours, stirring vigorously every ½ hour. After final settling, carefully pour off the top liquid layer for use, squeeze all liquid from the bran that has settled into the liquid and dispose of the remaining bran. Avoid use of algaecides, herbicides, and antibiotics when using Soilandwater.comBugs!® Clear-up products.

To seed small grow-out tanks or large aquariums, apply 18 to 20 grams per 1000 gallons (3785 L) of water the first week. Apply 9 to 10 grams weekly for the balance of one month. If you are treating an aquaculture tank, then continue with this product at 4 to 5 grams a week.  Monitor water quality and increase dosage, if needed, as larvae grow, so that harmonious balance is always maintained.
