Ducks and Milfoil

6 posts in this topic

Did anyone see tonight on the news that they are suspecting ducks or birds on transporting milfoil? They said that they have found milfoil in a few lakes around the cities where boats have rarely gone. I tried to find it on kstp.com but they must not have posted it yet.

Yes, I saw it. The theme was a sense of surprise which I don't understand. What surprise? Seems to me that waterfowl would be a likely source of the spread of both weeds and fish. That isn't too say that boats aren't a good way to spread it either and we still need to continue to do our part to minimize the spread.

They're the type of people who don't want to believe that strange weeds in their garden come from seeds in bird poop.

Well I for one was at a surprise! Surprised that they didnt think about it or even considerit before! I believe All animals are guilty of transporting these weeds either by seeds or by bits and pieces of weeds.

here is the story from KSTP

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.
