Abstract The New Zealand mudsnail Potamopyrgus antipodarum was recently discovered in Colorado, thereby expanding its invasion of the western United States. [...] Key Method Snails were submersed for 5 or 10 min in one of two Formula 409 solutions (50% or 100%) or one of three Sparquat 256 solutions (1.6, 3.1, or 4.7%). We used distilled water as the control treatment. Snail mortality at 48 h and 56 d after exposure was evaluated. Our findings suggest that the current recommendation (5-min application of 50…Expand
