WNS and Rope Decontamination

Friday, April 2nd, 2010

With WNS continuing to threaten bat populations across North America, the National White-Nose Syndrome Decontamination Protocol has been updated. With this update, the new suggested decontamination process for gear is to soak for 20+ minutes at 122°F or greater (PMI recommends not exceeding 140°F). This can be achieved by turning up your water heater and putting the gear through a soak cycle on your washing machine, followed by a wash. You can find the complete protocol here.

For further reference, here is information released by PMI regarding decontaminating your ropes with bleach.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns about how to clean and decontaminate your PMI gear: PMI Customer Service – custserv@pmirope.com or 800-282-ROPE (7673).
