Targeted Bacteria being used against Quagga Mussels at Hoover Dam

Via The Housing Bubble Blog:
"It is going to cause a lot of problems when we're going to have to install control measures," [Leonard Willett, the Bureau of Reclamation's quagga mussel coordinator for the lower Colorado River dams,] said.

Among the options for controlling the invasion is to use a bacteria product that targets the quagga mussels.

While that method is still being developed, Willett said, "It looks very promising."
I kind of thought the liberals had stopped tailored bacteria from being released in the wild. But, I see more cool monster movies on the horizon!
