susceptibility of quagga mussels (dreissena rostriformis bugensis) to hot-water sprays as a means of watercraft decontamination.the recent spread of dreissenid mussels to various bodies of water in the western us has sparked interest by many state and federal agencies to develop protocols to stop further expansion. quagga mussels (dreissena rostriformis bugensis) are of particular importance as they are currently the most widespread dreissenid species in the region. this project examined the susceptibility of quagga mussels to hot-water sprays at different temperatures and durations of spray contact at lake mead (nevada- ...201121390911
effectiveness of earthtec(®) for killing invasive quagga mussels (dreissena rostriformis bugensis) and preventing their colonization in the western united states.quagga mussels (dreissena rostriformis bugensis) have created economic and ecological impacts in the western united states since their discovery in 2007. this study focuses on chemical control for preventing the spread of these mussels. the effectiveness of earthtec(®) in killing quagga mussels (adults, juveniles, and veligers) in lake mead, nevada-arizona, was evaluated over time across six concentrations: 0, 1, 5, 10, 17, and 83 ppm. one hundred percent mortality of adult and juvenile mussels ...201323194393
the effect of uv-c exposure on larval survival of the dreissenid quagga mussel.the rapid spread of quagga mussels (dreissena rostriformis bugensis) has lead to their invasion of lake mead, nevada, the largest reservoir in north america and partially responsible for providing water to millions of people in the southwest. current strategies for mitigating the growth and spread of quagga mussels primarily include physical and chemical means of removing adults within water treatment, delivery, and hydropower facilities. in the present study, germicidal ultraviolet light (uv-c) ...201526186734
the quagga mussel crisis at lake mead national recreation area, nevada (u.s.a.).parks are cornerstones of conservation; and non-native invasive species drive extensive changes to biological diversity in parks. knowing this, national park staff at lake mead national recreation area in the southwestern united states had a program in place for early detection of the non-native, invasive quagga mussel (dreissena rostriformis bugensis). upon finding the mussel in january 2007, managers moved quickly to access funding and the best available science to implement a response. manage ...201020337691
