Summary

The efficacy and subsurface application of Zequanox®, a commercially prepared spray-dried powder formulation of Pseudomonas fluorescens (strain CL145A), were evaluated for controlling zebra mussels (Dreissena polymorpha) within 27-m2 enclosures in Lake Minnetonka (Deephaven, Minnesota). Five treatments consisting of (1) two whole water column Zequanox applications, (2) two subsurface Zequanox applications, and (3) an untreated control were completed on each of three independent treatment days during September 2014. The two types of samplers used in the study were (1) custom built multi-plate samplers (type 1 samplers), with wood, perforated aluminum, and tile substrates that were placed into Robinson’s Bay in June of 2013 to allow [...]

Purpose

Data were collected to evaluate the efficacy of Zequanox for controlling zebra mussels. Efficacy was determined two ways 1) enumerating live and dead zebra mussels after Zequanox treatments and 2) measuring total living zebra mussel biomass remaining on exposed substrate after treatments
