Invade Bio Drain Gel - Enzymatic Activity
The microbes used in InVade Bio products are a multiple-spore blend designed to provide exceptional performance over a wide range of organic waste-related applications, including drain line and grease trap treatment, hard surface cleaning and deodorizing, septic and waste treatment, and carpet and fabric care. The strains were selected for their superior enzymatic activity against specific substrates including proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. Their combined synergistic value is demonstrated in enhanced cell growth, germination rate, and effectiveness over a wide range of organic substrates. They will perform in both aerobic and anaerobic environments. Spore-formed microbes are superior in that they are more resistant to chemical cleaning agents. When the spores are in contact with their food source (the target organic matter), they generate bacterial colonies. These bacteria then digest organic matter. While the bacteria can be killed by chemicals, the spores survive and can again produce bacterial colonies when conditions become favorable (e.g. the chemical is rinsed away). The spores consist of Bacillus strains (multiple), with no detectable Salmonella or Shigella. Strains are included which produce Lipase, Protease, Amylase, Cellulase and Urease enzymes with aerobic and facultative anaerobic pathways. They are effective at a temperature range of 38-145 °F. In laboratory tests, the microbe counts double in 20 minutes when in contact with their food sources. They will perform in a pH range of 4.5 to 8.5. They are stable for two years if stored in the range 35-95 °F

Sugar Snakes in Drip Trays-Restaurants, Food Service, Convenience Stores
Invade Bio Drain Treatment may also be used in soda fountain drip trays to prevent or minimize something called "sugar snake". Sugar snake is a polymer that grows in drains where sugary drinks constantly drain. In the second stage, the polymer elongates and crystallizes to a rigid, hard, cellulose microfibril. When left untreated, these polymers "grow" and choke drain lines in Ice & Beverage Dispenser (IBD) machines.
The consequence of sugar snakes not treated are costly drain line backups and foul, vinegar-like odors. Also, sugar snakes contribute to poor sanitation. Sanitation is critical for any pest control measure. Each year, fast food restaurants, convenience stores, and other foodservice facilities incur expensive emergency plumbing bills to clear clogged IBD drain lines.

- Used Bio Drain for drain flies.
I purchased two one quart containers of Invade Bio Drain to treat six household drains. All 2" or smaller. I was attempting to eliminate some pesky drain flies. I initially thought that there were fruit flies in the house so I purchased some traps for them but the rascals ignored them. When I complained DIY Pest Control suggested that perhaps I had Drain Flies and that if I used Invade Bio Drain I would be able to control the infestation. I used the product as instructe and noticed a significant reduction in the fly population so I must have gotten the right product for the right pest. I've used 1 + 1/4 qt of the product for four applicatons every other night. It's now two weeks later and I've re-applied the product twice (once a week). I still have a couple of the critters flying around so I know it will be a long haul to conquer the little beasts but I will continue to use this product until the foe is vanquished.
- Great product!
I highly recommend the Bio Drain. It immediately took care of an odor coming from an otherwise clean drain. I saw no evidence of drain flies, but the product has a pleasant odor and is extremely effective! It is a necessary product in keeping the drains clean and smelling clean too!
We tried many things, including the advice by a professional pest removal company, and nothing worked. The Bio Drain worked beyond our expectations, eliminating the infestation of fruit flies in our kitchen sink drain. Totally eliminated them in one week! So far, one month later, no fruit flies. Great product, and safe, too
- Works as advertised-same stuff the pro's use
If you have drain flies, get Invade gel. Boiling water, bleach, dangerous chemicals & insecticides can be harmful and they just don't work. It took a while, it's gonna' happen overnight, but the beneficial bacteria in the Invade gel did the trick by devouring the soap scum and detritus in the drain traps where the larvae live and eat. Once the larvae have no soap scum, grease , etc. to hide in and eat you will soon have no more drain flies hatching. You don't need to have a professional exterminator do the work, You just pour some gel into the sink drains to coat all around the the pipes with the gel bacteria yourself. The pest control technician that treats my yard saved me a service call by tipping me off about buying Invade online They don't sell it direct and charge a service call to do what I could do myslef. Also, If you have a septic tank do not fail to put beneficial bacteria down the drains periodically, too, to keep the beneficial bacteria percolating.
- It works!
After trying several other methods, I purchased a bottle of Bio Drain for my Son & Daughter-In-Law to use in their home to stop the madness of a fruit fly epidemic! Bio Drain saved the day! I would recommend this product to others who are fruit fly haters too! It works!
- drain flies
This has not worked for me. It's been two weeks and I've seen no improvement. I've followed the directions exactly. Will give it a few more days.
DIY Response: You might want to try placing a clear piece of tape with small holes punched in it over the drain. This will help you identify if the flies are actually coming from the drain. It's possible that there is a different breeding source for the flies in the area. Give us a call at: 1-800-476-3368 and we can walk you through troubleshooting the problem.
- Fruit Flys Dead
I wasn't sure if it was going to work. 2 days most of them were still around, but after 5 or 6 days they are all gone.
- Cut the pest numbers in half
Invade Bio Treatment cut the pest numbers in half after a couple of applications. I will continue the clean out , then maintenance.
