Quarantine Expanded to Protect Missouri's Trees from Invasive Emerald Ash Borer (Sep 21, 2012)
Missouri Department of Agriculture.
Following this summer's findings of the invasive Emerald Ash Borer in Platte, Madison and Reynolds counties, Missouri's quarantine regulating the movement of many ash wood products has been expanded. Carter, Iron, Madison, Reynolds and Shannon counties in southeast Missouri and Clay and Platte counties near Kansas City are now included in the state quarantine, and Missouri's Wayne County has been quarantined as a result of the Emerald Ash Borer since the insect was first identified within the state in 2008. Detailed information on movement of ash products under a compliance agreement is available online at Missouri Emerald Ash Borer Program.

Invasive Zebra Mussels Confirmed at Smithville Lake (Mar 23, 2012)
Missouri Department of Conservation.
Biologists have determined that zebra mussels are present in Smithville Lake, a 7,200-acre impoundment north of Kansas City. Zebra mussels, mollusks which look like small clams, are an invasive species from Eurasia that can cause ecological and property damage. The Corps of Engineers is placing signs at the lake warning boaters that zebra mussels are present so they will take steps not to move the invaders. Boaters can play a major role in preventing the further spread of zebra mussels by making sure they clean, drain and dry their boats and trailers before moving them between lakes and rivers.

Porous-soled waders banned in Missouri trout waters (Feb 1, 2012)
Missouri Department of Conservation.
With catch-and-keep trout season opening March 1, the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) reminds trout anglers to help prevent the spread of a new threat to Missouri's cold-water streams and rivers. Called "didymo" (Didymosphenia geminata) or "rock snot," this invasive alga forms large, thick mats on the bottoms of cold-water streams and rivers, reducing the quality and quantity of food vital to fish such as trout. According to MDC Fisheries Biologist Mark VanPatten, recreational equipment such as boats, lifejackets and fishing gear, particularly porous-soled waders, are the most likely ways for didymo to spread into Missouri.
