EURASIAN WATERMILFOIL TREATMENT 2019
The Lake Management Committee will do two treatments this year. The treatment dates will be Monday, June 24th and Monday, July 29th with rain dates the following days respectively. Milfoil has two growing seasons each year and we treat during both of them.
Riparians who are within 100 feet of a treatment area are contacted by mail, and given the treatment dates and reminded of the 24-hour swimming restriction. Our herbicide applicator places a notification card on each property that is affected on the day of application. The card explains which herbicide was used and the swimming restrictions.
The application takes a full day (9 AM to 6 PM) The Lake Management Committee spends approximately 200 volunteer hours on this project each year.
This project needs attention each year as Eurasian Watermilfoil can grow quickly, and untreated areas will affect everyone’s use of the Lake.
Mickey Lake, the Timbers area, and the north side of Fox Island are examples of recent successes in making the lakes more enjoyable.
LLA INVASIVE SPECIES MANAGEMENT POLICY
It is the policy of the Long Lake Association to continue utilizing an integrated pest management program in order to minimize the impact of invasive species on the ecological health and recreational enjoyment of the lakes. We will continue to closely monitor all conditions with the understanding that with most invasive species of plants and animals, complete eradication is unlikely.
