[NAFEX] Blackberry/Wiltpruf Question

Wilt proof is a solution containing a beta-pinene polymer.  Polyterpene
polymers, including this one, are derived from pine sap.  I did read the
MSDS, and it finds no toxicity for Wilt-Pruf, which is an organic and
biodegradable product.

I asked this same Q of a chemist friend.  He researched either the MSDS or 
some other reference which lists components.  I might still have the info, 
"but where?!"  If I remember correctly, Wiltpruf is more non-toxic & 
bio-degradeable then I'd assumed.

What about coarse, airy mulches like pine needles, marsh hay, etc?

     Fort Kent Blackberries thrive here in zone 3 provided they are 
protected
from the drying winter winter wind.  Everything under the snow is protected
and everything above the snow-line fries.  I think spraying with Wiltpruf
would do the job but to do a thorough job, alot of Wiltpruf will be spilled
on the ground.
     What is Wiltpruf made of; does anyone know?  Is it environmentally
friendly?  Does it degrade?  How fast?  Thanks.
