Airmax Treatment Booster Plus
Enhance Treatment Effectiveness
Replaces Cide Kick
Increase the wetting, spreading, sticking and dispersing of your aquatic algaecide and herbicide treatment. Treatment Booster PLUS helps break down the protective “waxy” cuticle on leafy aquatic vegetation and helps penetrate bud and bark on woody plants. A by-product of the citrus industry, this treatment booster is a low viscosity oil that is compatible with most aquatic herbicides and algaecides and carries no water use restrictions.
How to Use:
Mix 2 ounces of Treatment Booster Plus for every gallon of chemical/water solution. Follow application instructions on the label of your aquatic herbicide/algaecide to apply mixture.
Product Number: WT07225 – 16 ounces

Herbicide & Algaecide Treatment Booster
If you’re looking for a way to give your herbicides and algaecides treatments a boost, consider using a surfactant. Surfactants are designed to help water-based solutions spread more evenly and stick to surfaces better. This can be especially helpful in areas with tough vegetation or when treating problem algae blooms. Be sure to read the label carefully to choose the right product for your needs and always follow directions. A little goes a long way with surfactants, so start with the smallest amount possible and increase as needed. Happy gardening!
The Problem of Herbicide and Algaecide Resistance
Herbicide and algaecide resistance is becoming an increasingly global problem. As bacteria, weeds, and other micro-organisms become adaptable to the chemicals used to control their growth and spread, controlling them becomes more difficult even with repeated application of otherwise effective treatments. Without aggressive measures to mitigate this growing problem, the effectiveness of current herbicides and algaecides will soon diminish; thus requiring alternative methods of pest management. In some cases, this might include physical removal of weeds by hand or machine as well as chemical treatments that may or may not still be effective. The threat of herbicide resistance should not be taken lightly as it has become a real concern for sustainable crop production and healthy ecosystems worldwide.
