Is there a smell or taste?
Our microbes are living organisms and do "gas off" when not dormant. So yes, there is usually a slight odor, similar to a smelly gym bag. No, there is no taste.
Is it certified organic?
Our products are ALL organic. However, they are not certified by USDA or registered by the OMRI. The reason for this is in order to be a "certified" product, we must reveal proprietary information (trade secrets) regarding our formulations and we are not willing to reveal that information.
Is it safe for human consumption?
Our label clearly states that we DO NOT recommend our micobes for human consumption.
Can I purchase for a lower cost from the main warehouse?
No. You can actually buy product cheaper through one of our listed distributors or dealers. We will not undercut our representatives.
Does it kill flies? Fire Ants?
Does it hurt to freeze?
A hard freeze may kill some of the microbes, causing the possibility of an imbalance in the formula.
Does it replace antibiotics?
No. Our REBOOT and BALANCER2 formulas do contain several bacteria that collectively form a high-powered, natural antibiotic which can combat many pathogens in the early stages of illness. However, if you are using the microbes faithfully and the animal is still ill, please administer antibiotics as necessary. Our microbes can enhance antibiotic therapies.
What is the best way to administer to livestock?
Orally and transdermal
Is it a dewormer for livestock?
Does REBOOT kill coccidiosis in goats?
Both of our livestock formulas can inhibit/mitigate coccidiosis in all livestock.
How often do you apply to soils?
At least once, annually. You may choose to split your application into two equal applications in the early spring and fall.
Are there any crops not recommended for microbe use?
No. Berries, radishes, sweet potatoes, parsley, peppers, potatoes and rhubarb require more acidic soils for optimum growth, so a lesser dosage of microbes is recommended.
Does it replace fertilizer?
Plants typically utilize only half of an any fertilizer applied. Our microbes are a growth promotant and can greatly enhance the utilization of fertilizer by the plant. When regularly using microbes, you may drastically reduce the amount of fertilizer input, thus reducing costs.
Is it an insecticide?
Does it kill grassburs? Sandburs?
No. Our microbes may be used in conjunction with a non-Glyphosate burr killer for an optimum kill rate.
Can the microbes be tank-mixed with fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides?
A stand-alone application is always best. Anytime you mix the microbes with chemicals or other compounds, you are creating a completely new compound. Because the microbes are living organisms, you risk the efficacy when tank-mixed. However, if you absolutely must tank-mix, please review the section on "Tank-Mixing Compounds."
What time of the year is best for spraying?
You may spray any time of the year with the exception of extremely freezing temperatures. For optimum penetration, application prior to a good rain is best.
