Why don't they use Copper Sulfate EPA pesticide approved to treat this?

Too little, too late. The Department of No Results moved WAY too slowly on the Zebra Mussel issue. The picture really shows how hard they work at preventing the spread of this nightmare.

They dumped $18,000 worth of copper sulfate into 10 acres of Rose Lake in an attempt to kill of the zebra mussels introduced there by a person now facing criminal charges in Otter Tail County. To treat just the 1200 acres of Rose Lake, $2.16 million with NO guarantee of success. Mille Lacs? 128K acres=$230.8 Billion. Copper sulfate has never worked in a lake. If it does in Rose Lake, that will be ground-breaking. Check back in 2 years...

Unless they can figure out a way to stop the spread of Zebra mussels in larval form by waterfowl, shore birds, sea gulls, grebes, pelicans, cormorants, muskrats, mink, raccoons and other water animals? All the money and training in the world will be for naught.

Fishanhunt2, we should train all of your supected wild life to go to less popular lakes, the 7000+ lakes not used by the boating and fishing public. Why do these pesky wild life animals alway frequent our 60 more popular lakes spreading zebra mussels.

Zebra's can not enter a lake from birds! Only through someone putting them in a lake or BOATS and related recreation equipment such as docks and lifts from other lakes...check your facts!

Only through someone putting them in a lake or BOATS and related recreation equipment such as docks and lifts from other lakes...check your facts! ===== Fact is Zebs can and have been transported in larval form by birds and animals. Other states are way ahead of us on this. Of course when this happens, (And it will.) recreational boaters who are not lake-shore owners will be blamed.
