Marrone Bio Innovations’ Zequanox® Demonstrates Control of Zebra Mussels in Illinois Lake
Date:12/12/2012

y Lake in 2009 and have since developed a well-established population within the lake. Because of their ability to reproduce quickly and in large numbers, invasive mussels can rapidly take over water systems they invade, outcompeting native species for food and space. Invasive mussels also clog boat engine intake systems, causing the motors to overheat, and coat boat hulls, resulting in costly damage to paints and coatings. In addition, their thin, sharp shells cause painful cuts and wounds, and when the shells of deceased mussels wash ashore, they can ruin recreational beach areas. Currently, there are no commercially viable alternatives for treating invasive mussels in open water bodies without harming other species.

“We are very pleased with the outcome of this study. The mortality rates as a result of Zequanox applications were impressive and the use of anchored barriers proved to be a an excellent method to isolate and treat mussels within specific areas of the lake,” said John “Ole” Oldenburg, director, Office of Natural Resources, Forest Preserve District of DuPage County.

The study was implemented in partnership with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, Southern Illinois University (SIU), Forest Preserve District of DuPage County, PLM Lake and Land Management (PLM) and Marrone Bio Innovations.

Oldenburg added, “We are also very appreciative of MBI for providing the product that allowed us to conduct the study, and want to recognize the talented team of individuals from SIU, MBI and our Natural Resource staff from the District for their great field work in conducting this very important evaluation. We look forward to having an environmentally friendly tool for controlling invasive mussels, which cause significant ecological and economic damage to the areas they infest.”

Additional open water testing with Zequanox was performed earlier this year by the US Geological Service in collaboration with scientists from New Yo
