For more than 13 years, William Dean Holz has been preparing to eradicate red fire ants from the Texas countryside. He is one step closer to his goal with the recent launch of Stet Corporation, a Texas-based developer, manufacturer and distributor of WisEarth branded insecticides and soil products.
A product that can tackle red fire ants is an accomplishment in itself but what makes this product even more interesting is the fact it is made from dairy and feed yard manure. Holz developed the product formula in 1991 while he working in fertilization and bio remediation.
The Stet Corporation process manages dairy and feedyard waste materials by converting the highest quality liquid compost into stable, consistent concentrates. In its new manufacturing facility in Belton,
Texas, Stet Corporation stabilizes and preserves the nutrients found in the raw material to create natural and biodegradable products.
“Not only are we working to help rid the U.S. of fire ants but we are offering a solution to dairy farmers in the disposal of waste product,” says Holz.Stet Corporation has partnered with dairyman Arjen Geijsel, owner of Wilhelmus Dairy, a 1000 head dairy located in Hico, Texas. He serves as an adviser to the Stet Corporation executive team on dairy related business issues, including dairy waste regulatory activities.
The company is currently working with Texas-based distributors Capitol Scientific (Austin), Enviro-Point (Austin), Organica Ideal (Bastrop),
STMM Distributing (Leander), Rocking Bar L (Canton), Welch Enterprise (Trenton) and BWI (Schulenburg). It has also received approval to distribute in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Tennessee and is currently working on partnerships in Peru and Africa.
