Protect Your Waterbody from Foreign Invaders
Controlling wildlife can be very challenging, especially when it comes to nuisance species like mosquitoes, midges, and geese. And other non-native species, such as zebra and quagga mussels, invade waterbodies and cause major economic damage. Each of these free-roaming animals and insects pose their own unique management challenges. Fortunately, targeted technologies help us prevent these pesky creatures from negatively impacting your aquatic ecosystem and annoying your family, friends and neighbors during an afternoon on the water.
Zebra and Quagga Mussel Control
These highly invasive mussels are infesting our freshwater lakes, ponds and rivers and causing damage to water supply pipes, facilities and fish spawning areas. In addition to regular inspections of boats and trailers, EPA-registered molluscicide can be applied to prevent and control the spread of Zebra and Quagga Mussels.
Midges can be a terrible nuisance and trigger allergies or respiratory issues. Managing midge fly populations below nuisance levels requires a multidisciplinary and proactive approach to achieve successful long-term control. Midges can be managed and prevented using many sustainable solutions.
Residential Geese can make a mess of your lawn and turf and can also increase the excess nutrients entering your waterbody. Deterring these nuisance animals while protecting your aquatic resources can be possible with a holistic repellent plan.
Apple snails are a large, freshwater species that are part of the family Ampullariidae. When introduced to non-native areas, they can rapidly alter the ecological makeup of aquatic ecosystems due to their aggressive feeding style and rapid growth rate. Southern states are particularly susceptible to this species.
