Invasive mussel (quagga and zebra) eradication and control tactics are available on a new website for managers of lakes with invasive mussel infestations or who are preparing to respond if an infestation occurs. The website includes information from expert speakers who explained eradication and control tactics, integrated pest management and permitting considerations at a workshop held in San Diego in February 2012. It also has pictures from field trips to lightly and heavily infested lakes where various tactics were demonstrated. A series of information sheets on these topics will be posted by September 30, 2012.
The website is located at http://ca-sgep.ucsd.edu/quaggazebra_mussel_control
The workshop was organized and presented by Carolynn Culver and Heather Lahr of California Sea Grant Extension and by Leigh Johnson and Jodi Cassell of University of California Cooperative Extension.
