Root Cleaner concentrate eliminates soil borne pests and pathogens—While Green Cleaner treats the foliage above ground, Root Cleaner takes care of the problems in the soil and root zone.
How Does It Work?
Root Cleaner Soil Drench will stop and eliminate Thrips, Fungus Gnats, Root Aphids and minimize root rot and egg hatching by disrupting their feeding and reproduction. Root Cleaner attacks fungus and algae and cause the pests to dehydrate and dry up. High moisture levels in soils, media and around pots enhances the development of fungus gnats and other pests. If untreated fungus gnats will feed on the beneficial material in the soil. If a fungal food source is not available, fungus gnats may feed directly on plants and inhibit the plant from rooting. This may also damage the root zone as they feed on seedlings and potted plants. On many healthy steamed plants, larvae may tunnel into stems and cause plants to wilt and die. Larval feeding on roots may increase the development of root and stem rots such as Pythium. When this occurs, plants will be stunted with reduced growth. Also, pests droppings on plants may carry other diseases.
Our Product has been tested in our lab on delicate new growth, clones, cuttings, tomatoes, roses and other plants.
Root Cleaner Soil Drench can be used on soil, coco and container gardens.
Mode of Action
Some nematodes are beneficial to plant growth, but others are detrimental. Green Cleaner will harm nematodes, which some attack plants and serve as carriers for plant viruses in crops.
For Prevention & Maintenance:
Like any pest control maintenance schedule, how often you apply will depend on your local insect pressure & critter population. Critters like raccoons, opossum & squirrels are known carriers of parasites. Insects like fungus gnats & thrips thrive in moist, warm, shady areas. In general, a 30-45 day routine treatment or after heavy rain is the best practice and usually the cheapest solution to pest management. As needed, protect your garden from pests and pathogens. Use as often as needed for a pest free environment
Root Cleaner can be applied to media using a drench application. Apply Root Cleaner into the plant’s root zone, and irrigate so the material moves throughout the root zone or where the pests are located.
To treat an active problem, you must apply twice within 7-10 days to ensure you break the egg cycle. We recommend the drench and soak method when applying for treatment of infestation pest problems.
Post Application Rinse
To help revive your soil to its natural state, Rinse 15 minutes after application, pour water into the media and flush, thoroughly. Flush with water to rinse all the dead pests and pathogens away from your media. Reapply your nutrients or beneficial after you completely flushed your media with water.
