Aquatic Invasive Species Management
*Aquatic invasive species has become a big issue across the nation. States are just catching up to the invasion of unwanted vegetation and species, but it's going to be an ongoing battle to try and maintain. The eradication of invasive species will never concur, so it needs to be taken care of on an ongoing basis. Here in New York, we must control an extensive amount of these invasive species and we can lend a hand to such projects.
*With the high traffic of civilian life, along with the natural occurrences of nature, we are experiencing an unprecedented growth in species. However, this growth has been occurring for many, many years and no amount of catching up will rid the issue. But...a good amount of maintenance can control it. Here in New York, we have many shallow bodies of water and some of the fastest growing types of invasive species, so it can become somewhat time consuming, but certainly beneficial.
*We have many contending aquatic plants, such as Brazilian Waterweed, Water-Milfoil, Pondweed, Eurasian Water-Milfoil, Water Chestnut and Yellow Floating Heart- Just to name a few. We have just as many invertebrates as well; Asian Clam, Zebra Mussel, Rusty Crayfish and snails- Just to name a few more.
*The goal is to successfully harvest these species in order to bring back a thriving native species that once existed. Invasive species are overtaking the native roots, which is causing great deal to our state's natural occurrence and wildlife.
*We can contribute in small acreage parcels in order to control either low or high density invasive problems. We have multiple techniques, but the most effective one is hand harvesting in order to best reach the root.
*Whether private or public, we will inquire and obtain permitting if necessary. Find the permit page under the "About Us" tab, and determine your best course of action. If you need a permit, which invasive work usually does, it must be presented before work begins.
