Ever wander into a lake only to be greeted by the sharp edge of a Zebra Mussel? We’re not surprised. If you live near a natural body of water, you are probably very familiar with this type of invasive species. Not only are these widespread and pesky creatures annoying for boaters, unsuspecting barefoot beach-goers, and fishers alike, they are damaging to the prosperity of fresh water lakes.
The spread of these invasive creatures and plants severely damages the balance of aquatic eco-systems, destroys wildlife, and hinders people from fully enjoying all that fresh water has to offer. In order to ensure our lakes stay pristine and that our native species are protected, it is important that boaters and water-goers take the necessary precautions to avoid contamination.
