08:43 EDTMBIIMarrone Bio Zequanox achieves 100% mortality for invasive mussels in MN lake
Marrone Bio Innovations announced the successful results of a Zequanox treatment conducted at Christmas Lake in Shorewood, MN. Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District's, or MCWD, Aquatic Invasive Species, or AIS, Program requested Zequanox treatment from MBI after discovering zebra mussels near the public boat launch. The non-chemical product approved for use in open water was applied to a 50 by 60 foot containment area with an average depth of 2.5 feet. Before treating, there were approximately 5,000 live mussels in the enclosure. The treatment began on September 8 and eleven days later results showed 100% mortality of the zebra mussels in the treatment area. MCWD staff monitored the effectiveness of Zequanox by counting dead mussels over time in the treatment area using collected mussels placed in cages and by searching the area for mussels attached to rocks. Also, they monitored aquariums in a laboratory that held treated water and mussels from Christmas Lake.
