Bug on a Rope

Fats, Oils and Grease Control for Canadian Lift Stations

  • Constant 24/7 grease control in lift stations and sewer lines
  • Long lasting: up to 10 weeks depending on flow rates
  • Helps manage downstream hydrogen sulfide levels and BOD
  • Easy to install with attached meter of of rope


Bug On A Rope is a unique bacterial block for lift station grease control.

The center of the Bug On A Rope is filled with instant impact pseudomonas bacteria that have a big impact in the first weeks. The biostimulants on the outside are rich in oxygen and key nutrients that ensure the grease-eating bacillus are released with maximum activity.

Hang Bug On A Rope under the incoming flow and it will slowly degrade, releasing the two powerful systems of bacteria into the lift station. These bacteria not only help consume grease, but also digest BOD and lower H₂S in the collection system.

The Story Behind Bug On A Rope

About four years ago a customer of ours, Dan, was using a netted brick from a janitorial supply company, and he said it worked so-so. We went to work studying grease deposits from lift stations and what types of bacteria were truly needed. We went to work studying FOG deposits found in lift stations (animal fat, vegetable oils, etc.) and what blend of bacteria and biostimulants were needed to truly control it. It took us three years of research and development to come up with the Bug On A Rope, which was named by another customer, Mitch. Both of these customers still use the product as their only source of grease control and swear by it.

    Works well as advertised

  3. Jonathon M (LA)

    A product that does what it says will do. Saves time and money. I noticed a change immediately upon first using and I notice a major difference if I stop my dosage. Extremely easy to use. The combination of both bug on a rope and greasezilla has kept us from having zero down time on a lift station
