Decontaminating Construction Equipment
Some problems have relatively simple solutions compared to the cost of neglect. Minimizing the spread of invasive species and harmful pathogens clinging to construction equipment is one such solution. Our working group has published a scientific article in Herpetological Review (click here) that explains how resource managers and contractors can decontaminate construction and field equipment by cleaning, disinfecting, and drying, thus minimizing the spread of harmful organisms. For a Three-Step Guide that is meant of a general audience and equipment operators can be found here.
