Lake property owners are encouraged to use AIS lake service providers that are knowledgeable about AIS and have participated in the DNR lake service provide training.

Zebra mussels: zebra mussels are the biggest threat to our lakes. During the summer or when you remove your dock, boat, boat lift or any water related equipment for storage or transport, check for zebra mussels. They attach to vegetation, metal or hard structures. As adults they are very visable. In the early stage of life they may appear as “little bumps..like sandpaper” on a surface. Have your service provider check or check yourself.

If an AIS is detected, contact:
