EarthTec QZ achieves 100% quagga mussel mortality in Canadian pilot study

Jul 2, 2019

EarthTec QZ achieved complete quagga mussel mortality in a recent study by Canadian Researchers. Ian Lake-Thompson and Ron Hofmann tested EarthTec QZ in real-world conditions at a Toronto water treatment plant. They found that low doses of the copper-based molluscicide killed 100% of adult quagga mussels, even in cyclical flow conditions.

The study is published in the April 2019 issue of Environmental Science: Water Research and Technology. The full article is available at ResearchGate, a professional network for scientists and researchers.
