Traditional Grease Control Bricks
Traditional bricks for grease control are made with hardened soap, wax and oils. The same materials that build up in lift stations. This means the bricks have to degrade their base in addition to what is in the lift station. The bricks are held together with a mesh net, which catches a lot of paper and makes them a mess to retrieve.

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 found all types of fat, oil and grease (animal fat, vegetable oils, etc), and then asked ourselves how can we bind this bacteria with biostimulants to really activate their growth. 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.
