ZEBRA MUSSEL TREATMENT

When zebra mussels spawn in the Spring and the Fall they release millions of free floating larvae called veligers. These quickly attach to structure, almost any type of surface, and begin to grow hard shells. Once done, they start to filter water to obtain nutrients. This deprives other marine live from the food and clears the water. This clearer water allows nuisance aquatic vegetation to grow in much deeper water than it could before. We are seeing the results of all that plant growth on the lakes now. If left untreated, the cost of maintenance to repair damaged infrastructure can be extremely high and the danger of cut swimmers reduces your access to the lake.

Our new Zebra Mussel Treatment program targets zebra mussels with the only molluscicide approved in all 50 states. We have used this product for two years with success in killing established adult colonies. In this program, we will treat once a month from May through August and from November through February (8 months total) concentrating on boat slips, bulkheads, lifts, jet ski ramps, ladders, irrigation water intakes and other structures.

HIGHLY INVASIVE & VERY BAD FOR THE LAKES

Zebra Mussels infested the Highland Lakes and have spread exponentially this year on Lakes LBJ and Inks Lake. They displace other mussel species, clear the water so much that more nuisance plants grow, clog pipes and cut swimmers.

SO PROLIFIC - THEY WILL NEVER GO AWAY!

Mussels spawn in the Spring and Fall and produce free floating larvae (veligers) by the millions that float freely until they attach to structure and grow hard shells.

PRODUCT USED IS EFFECTIVE AND SAFE

We apply the only EPA and NSF approved molluscicide. It has been extensively tested and approved in all 50 states and is safe for swimming, pets, fishing, irrigation and drinking water and does not harm wildlife.

SCHEDULED FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS

Our program runs May through August and November through February (four treatments each) to coincide with the two spawning periods.

A PROGRAM BORN OF NECESSITY

When we discovered them in the lakes, we knew what a huge problem they would become. So we researched extensively, tested diligently and implemented these treatments as quickly as possible. Results are very encouraging so far.
