Paint isle, not plumbing. It is used as a cleaner/deglosser prior to painting.

Word of caution -> lots of sodium in this product, may not be the best solution.

Geez treegal, talk about toxic. That stuff is rated category 1 toxicity.

TOXICITY CATEGORY I
All pesticide products meeting the criteria of Toxicity Category I are required to bear on the front panel the signal word "Danger." In addition if the product was assigned to Toxicity Category I on the basis of its oral, inhalation or dermal toxicity (as distinct from skin and eye local effects) the word "Poison'' shall appear in red on a background of distinctly contrasting color and the skull and crossbones shall appear in immediate proximity to the word "Poison."

hey i did not say it was no toxic or the best option, but it will work and is still natural, like snake venom.
some times it is a choice you have to make. ground pearl or wood creosote? or try merit??? that's real bad

its a carcinogen also like smoking,or asphalt

yeah, bad stuff is every place. found a coral snake sat.
did not put my finger in its mouth though and am still here to tell about it. the 3 or 4 oz that it takes to get these guys is kind of a trade off. I never said i was perfect ether, just sharing what i have SEEN. myself i will stick to wood burn residues instead of merit or other great chems. and i get the toxic thing real well and have the desire learn more.
so if any one has better advice lets hear them chime in. or is TSP with DILOX and creosote the best we can do at this POINT

I think we can always find something that will kill them, but will it do it selectively is the million dollar question?

I checked out Arbico and couldn't find anything that even mentioned ground pearls.

In theory if you had a ground pearl too look at under a microscope, Could you apply beneficial Nematodes and actually watch and see if they will attack and penetrate through their waxy cuticle?
