Email News Alerts

Last year, controversy stirred over scientists testing the effects of Zequanox on zebra mussels in a mobile lab set up on the shores of Lake Carlos. Testing on Little Lake Darling in 2013 will be an expansion of that study.


In 2012, Zebra mussels were removed from Lake Carlos, along with lake water, and placed into containment units. The mussels were treated with Zequanox while in control bags. Zequanox is a biological product used to eliminate zebra mussels.
