* As the first application biodegrades & releases the active humic acids, the second application becomes ready to treat the pond & keep the natural biological cycle functional. A Fall treatment will save you problems in the spring.
* Be patient- natural processes take time. Initially the water may become cloudy or "tea colored" but will clear shortly.
* Microbe-Lift Barley Straw Pellets + is the most convenient form of barley available today. The barley pellets should be introduced where water is flowing & the depth is less than three feet. You may also place some barley pellets in your filter media box.

Please Note: MICROBE-LIFT Barley Straw Pellets+ will leave a residual on the bottom of the pond. The bacteria in the Microbe-Lift products as well as MICROBE-LIFT Sludge Away will digest this organic residual.
Also Note: Fish will not eat the barley pellets as they contain no food value.

Manufacturer's Description

Microbe-Lift Barley Straw Pellets + is an environmentally responsible & cost-effective pond conditioner. It is an natural & organic way to a healthy pond environment. Barley straw & selected natural peats have been processed & packaged to make them easy to apply with no mess. Barley Straw Pellets + are manufactured using an exclusive proprietary process that eliminates the use of wheat, corn or other binders. The barley straw is harvested & stored under climatic conditions that assure quality of essential ingredients. The process also makes these barley pellets weed-free. Microbe-Lift Barley Straw Pellets + are rich in humic acids which are very beneficial to the aquatic environment. Humic acid softens pond water, reduces the negative effect of phosphate & generally improves the environment for your pond fish. The humic acid will also chelate other metals, such as mercury or arsenic. In addition, oxygen & sunlight activate humic acids to produce hydrogen peroxide naturally & at a low level of release. Microbe-Lift Barley Straw Pellets + are completely harmless to fish & higher pond plants. The natural, biological activity of fungus and bacteria break down barley straw to produce humic acids so barley straw can be used over a long period of time. The peat has already been broken down in ponds thousands of years ago and becomes part of the substate of your pond. Depending on level & length of use, the peat will buffer the pond's pH & control some alkalinity. Some of the clearest pond waters stand over peat bottoms.
