Fighting Microbes with Microbes | The Scientist Magazine®

Like humans, with their complement of microbes that aid in everything from immune responses to nutrition, plants rely on a vast array of bacteria and fungi for health and defense. Over the last decade, research has revealed many new functional aspects of the crosstalk between human-associated microbes and human cells, but plant biologists are only beginning to scratch the surface of the often surprising ways that soil microbiota impact plants, from underground fungus-wired alarm systems to soil bacteria that can trigger defensive plant behavior or even act as a sort of vaccine. But despite these benefits, microbes are still primarily thought of as harbingers of disease……

Keeping Ponds Clean With Organic Pond Cleaners

Keeping Ponds Clean With Organic Pond Cleaners

by Clifford Woods

A large number of pond owners are misconceived when it comes to the presence of algae in aquatic structures. The problem occurs where the algae is growing prolifically often distorting the color and the texture of the water.

A poor quality of water can actually stress and stunt the growth of fish and therefore understanding ways of keeping your pond clean and fresh can create a balanced ecosystem.

Where the water quality is not maintained, ammonia levels will be on the rise impacting on the health of fish. In a large number of cases, it will result in poor gill function and an inability for the Koi to breathe. Apart from the devastating impact on fish, the presence of large amounts of algae can create an unattractive looking feature.

It is important to implement organic pond cleaners which contain beneficial or effective microorganisms that will keep the correct balance of both algae and bacteria so that a healthy ecosystem is maintained.

Where matter and waste are allowed to collect in the bottom of the pond, the oxygen content eventually decreases, which means that beneficial bacteria or microorganisms are unable to control for high levels of ammonia and nitrites. Even the application of a pump or filter to aerate the water will prove ineffective.

Increased exposure to sunlight during the warmer months creates the ideal conditions for algae growth. The key is to manage the amount of waste entering water in order to control ammonia and nitrite levels. The implementation of aquatic bacteria to break down the high organic content safely and naturally can prove most successful.

Keeping Ponds Clean with Organic Pond Cleaners

Be sure to avoid placing large number of aquatic plants, twigs, branches and similar objects in the water as this will breakdown over time increasing the nutrient rich content in the pond.

With beneficial microorganisms and aeration systems in place the bacteria will begin to eat the extra nutrients and muck settling in the bottom of ponds for clearer water. Where you are able to reposition plants to provide shade and clean out filters, it may give the beneficial bacteria an opportunity to repopulate.breakdown over time increasing the nutrient rich content in the pond.

There are many products available to add the necessary microorganisms to the pond. Once these have been added it will work to decrease ammonia and nitrates and increase the overall oxygen content. The result is a drastic reduction in the presence of algae as all organic content is broken down without any harm to the fish present in the water.

Should the water turn a brown color, clear the area of all debris and leaf matter that may have fallen into the pond and settled on the bottom. The addition of suitable microorganisms will allow for acceleration in the break down of any remaining leaf or organic matter. Over time you will also notice the water beginning to clear and reduce the collection of sediment.

Keeping ponds clean with organic pond cleaners it is important to exercise regular maintenance.

This includes cleaning filters and checking aeration systems. This will enhance the desired microorganism populations and the breakdown of excess waste.

Tips for Keeping a Clean Pond All Year Round

Tips for Keeping a Clean Pond All Year Round

By Clifford Woods

You have done all the work to create your beautiful pond. You’ve got the correct, colorful fish and the pumps are pumping, the plants are “just so” and you start enjoying.

You then do all the right things. Add the chemicals and things recommended and one day your pond is not as clear as it was. You cannot see your fish and worse – it’s all green! Oh no!

Well, here are some no chemicals tips
for keeping a clean pond all year round that you and your fish will love!

Fish in Pond

The first point is NEVER put any chemicals what-so-ever in your pond. They damage the environment; destroy natural vegetation and they can HARM your fish! If you are currently using chemicals, it is strongly recommend that you cease using them. At the very least, they are not safe for the environment.

Use beneficial microorganisms – always – an organic pond cleaner! Some kinds of microorganisms help us, but other kinds give us trouble. Among microorganisms, there are good bacteria and there are bad bacteria. Good bacteria cleans water, produce cheese, bread etc. and are of help to our health. Bad bacteria contaminate soil, pollute water and air. They cause sickness and disease and degrade health. So, look around. Do a little research and locate some effective microorganisms that you can use in your pond. Use organic pond cleaners, your fish will love you for it.

No Ultra Violet Lights – ever. Ultra Violet light does reduce the bacteria in the pond; however, the UV cannot tell the difference between the good bacteria and the bad ones. Because of this, a UV light kills the friendly bacteria in the pond and in any beneficial microorganisms you are using – right along with the bad guys!

Use your dechlorinator. If your water is chlorinated or every time you add fresh water to your pond; dechlorinate. Chlorine is not good for the microbes in any effective organisms you use.
Plants and animals are not likely to store chlorine. However, laboratory studies show that repeat exposure to chlorine in air can affect the immune system, the blood, the heart, and the respiratory system of animals. Chlorine causes environmental harm at low levels. Chlorine is especially harmful to organisms living in water and in soil; so, use your de-chlorination products!

No sludge build-up! When beneficial microorganisms are used regularly in ponds, about every 6 weeks or so all-year-round, the black, stinky, smelly sludge build up on the bottom of ponds does not seem to happen.

Good practice:Some good practices when dealing with ponds are:

  1. Calculate the gallons of water in your pond correctly. Use a calculator – The formula is: length x width x average depth x 7.5. This ensures that whatever you are adding to it is being added correctly to your pond.
  2. If you have heavy rains, double the dosage of whatever effective microorganisms you are use.
  3. Do not fertilize your pond plants. This also fertilizes the algae – and we do not want to be doing that!

Using beneficial microorganisms, at the recommended dosages, all-year-round (every 6 weeks or so) and keeping your pond dechlorinated whenever you add fresh water, will give you:

  • Happy fish
  • Thriving and beautiful plants
  • No green water
  • A clean, healthy, beautiful pond all-year-round!

Controlling Algae Naturally in Your Pond

Controlling Algae Naturally in Your Pond

By Clifford Woods

You have two choices in dealing with algae in your pond and that is with chemicals or naturally.

Chemical methods are fine if you there are no living creatures or plants in your pond because an algaecide and chemicals will kill any and all life in the water. Normally chemicals would be used in a swimming pool or perhaps outdoor fountains, any water feature that does not have plants and or fish in them.

The natural way works with Mother Nature, not against her. You could use plants and fish, or good bacteria that would create and maintain a healthy well-balanced ecosystem. Algae itself is a plant, it needs nutrients and light to grow so when you add plants to your pond they directly compete for the nutrients available. Add enough plants and you naturally minimize the nutrients available to the algae.

Controlling Algae Naturally in your PondOver feeding your fish. Fish food that is not digested by the fish is the main pollutant in many ponds.  Fish will eat many things in the pond and that includes algae. Too much food for the fish increases waste and provides nutrients that feed the algae. When the algae goes on an over population bloom reduce or eliminate feeding until it is under control.

Reduce sunlight penetration: Cover at least half of the surface area of your pond with plants. Water that is not covered is much more difficult to keep in balance than ponds filled with beneficial plants.

Add Beneficial Microorganisms

Colonies of healthy bacteria found in Pond Magician are a crucial part in ensuring a naturally balanced pond. When cooler water temperatures are present add more and during the warmer months add less.

Keep the water moving: pulling water from one end of the pond and then filtering it before it returns at the opposite end will greatly improve water quality. Oxygen is added to the water as it is circulated.

Water run-off from lawns and surrounding gardens can overload the pond with nutrients and that is not good for the life in your pond. Create a run off or add a drain tile.

You must manually take out the dead and decaying plants and their leaves: Decaying leaves and or plant debris will also create excess nutrients in your pond. Skimmers are by far the most efficient and easiest way to keep your pond free of debris.

Water change: A partial water change (10-30%) every month or month and a half may also help reduce excess nutrients in some situations.

The Solution Is Effective Microorganisms

The Solution Is Effective Microorganisms

by Clifford Woods

The technology on effective microorganisms is a mixture of beneficial bacteria and yeast. The top soil can be improved by the addition of these foreign substances. It has proved to be an impressive option all over the world. The know-how can be applied in human health, agriculture sector, livestock rearing and industrial waste treatment.

The Solution is Effective MicroorgansimsThe skill aims at increasing the number of beneficial matters in soil. The result of the expertise has many advantages. It increases the microbial health in soil and promotes a healthy environment for plants.  The bacteria are responsible for fixing atmospheric nitrogen in the earth. They accelerate decomposition of organic wastes and residues. The microbe can be used as an important tool in the manufacture of organic fertilizers.

The ability is extensively used in the livestock sector to enhance the quality and quantity.A disease suppressive microbe is developed when this method is adopted. The matter is introduced into the animal bodies in order to produce antibiotics. These antibiotics are necessary for a good animal health.

There are many examples of bacteria that are used in plant production. Better yields are enhanced in agriculture with the incorporation of this system. The technology is a mixture of several non engineered matters. Lactic acid bacteria are used to metabolize sugars by fermentation process. Photosynthetic bacteria convert the sun energy into sugars. They can also convert nitrogen gas in the air in a form that the plants can use. Enzymes and antimicrobial substances are particularly crucial in plants.

Effective Microorganisms also known as beneficial microorganisms, improve soil when they are introduced into soil. The possibility of plants doing well is there which promises abundant crop yields. They reduce the need for chemical fertilizers and pesticides making them particularly friendly to the environment.A possible sustainable agriculture is likely to be enhanced, with the assimilation of these creatures.They are safe for human, plants and animals.

Foods that are modified using this technology have proved to be an antioxidant. They are friendly on the digestive system. Yeast is significant because the formation process involved produces vitamins. This is an essential mineral that are required by the body. The food products made through this method is safe and full of nutrients supplement.

The nutrients do protect from free radical stress and pollution. They suppress disease that may develop in human bodies and build enzyme capacity. There are high chances of the human body being detoxified by the continued use of foodstuff that contains this bacterium.

The system has made it easy for many people all over the world. It allows you to compost meat and dairy products. This system is frightfully common in urban centers. Flower gardens and fruits grow faster hence income increased even by 150%. The labor involved is low.

However, it should be noted that microorganisms may change the power of hydrogen in the soil. This may have negative effects to the soil. Substances to ecosystem can be disruptive and potentially destructive. When using the effective microorganisms, care should be taken to avoid soil erosion in plants.

Good results are achieved when the technology is used together with mulching.
