zebra muscles

Recommended Posts

We took out 2 docks and boat lifts this weekend and all 4 were covered with zebra muscles. This was on 2 separate parcels in Isle Bay. Judging by just these 2 incidents I would say it is more widespread than people think, or maybe I was tinking they were just isolated reports. Anybody else see this in taking docks out this fall?

My Dock/ Lift was covered on the north end by the wealthwood access. First time in 6 years.

I would let the DNR know about them and if you kept any I'd bring them along also.

If you keep any zebra mussels, DNR wants you to put them in a container with rubbing alcohol in it before you send them in. DO NOT get caught transporting them anywhere without the DNR knowing about it first.

DNR knows they are in the lake. Old news. I think they know what they look like. If it makes you feel better, call them.

Yes, the DNR know they are in the lake and they know what they look like, but they also want to know the extent of the infestation. Since nobody wants to pay increased fees so they (the DNR) can go out and do the work themselves, our help goes a long way in keeping cost down. Let the DNR know what you guys have found.

We called them that afternoon and they came out and took a look, took some photos and samples.

      There are the unavoidable few that mess it up either on purpose or by ignorance but I think most people get it close enough; at least that is what the latest data are showing.  Hopefully that will hold.   I work in development and sterile manufacturing of biopharmaceutical drugs so I have a strong understanding.  Our bar is way higher than health care providers (that's why I make great beer!).  I am actually quite shocked what they call sterile.  Not that what they do is necessarily wrong, but it certainly is not sterile.   Case in point.  I was appalled at the heartwarming story of the 95 year old in the MN nursing home that could not spend her birthday with her family.  To lift her spirits, the entire staff of the nursing home...like 20 people...came into her little room where she was bed ridden and sang her happy birthday.  Big hearts, ignorant brains in that scene.  And on TV promoting the wrong approach where we should be the most careful.
