Just wondering if I ran some Clorox through my pressure washer if it would kill them?

It should kill them - clorox kills pretty much everything.

Just be sure to rinse thoroughly. The bleach will start severe corrosion if you don't rinse it all away.

I doubt you would kill them like that. I retired from the power plant on Lake Graham and we have Asian Clams in our
lake. They are cousins to Zebra Mussels pretty much. We put some in 18% chlorine bleach for 21 days and when we removed them they were still alive. They have the ability to seal so tight that the chlorine won't get in.

It will kill the veligers (microscopic juvenile offspring).

I'm gonna get in contact with the P&W biologist and see what they have to say about it. I'll post my finding later today.

Zebra mussels survive anything so, maybe not
