Zequanox Offers Muscle Against Mussels in Minnesota lakes
Zequanox is a new bacterial control agent capable of killing zebra mussels. After two decades of research evaluating its effectiveness and safety, trials have indicated that the bacterium is killing zebra mussels.

The Zequanox product contains dead bacterial cells. When a zebra mussel eats them, its digestive tract is disrupted by natural products inside the bacterial cells, leading to the mussel’s death. Since the bacteria are dead, once a treatment is made, the bacteria would not become established in a lake.

Zequanox is now registered for use with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to clean these invasive mussels out of clogged pipes, thus reducing the use of potentially polluting chemical pesticides. Because of the size of lakes, however, it is quite unrealistic to think that it would be technically or economically feasible to use Zequanox or any other currently available method to control mussels throughout an entire lake.

Eliminating Leaching of Fertilizer Good for the Environment - Something we hear a lot these days is that water is going to become the next oil in terms of value as a natural resource. Not only do we need more water in some locations, but we need to protect what we have, whether we live and work in the sometimes soggy Great Lakes region, or the arid west. Greenhouse operators can’t do too much about acquiring more of this valuable resource, but they can protect what lies right under their feet.
