Items of Interest:

Pull the Plug, Drain Your Boat: New Rules Should Reduce the Spread of Quagga Mussels (Feb 2017)
Utah Department of Natural Resources. Division of Wildlife Resources.
If you boat on two popular waters in Utah, you need to be aware of two major changes. In addition to stopping at all mandatory inspection stations that are open, you must do the following to prevent spreading quagga mussels:

  • After boating on Lake Powell or Deer Creek Reservoir, you must remove the drain plugs from your boat — and not replace them again — until you get home.
  • If your boat has been slipped or moored at Lake Powell, for two weeks or more, you must call one of the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) aquatic invasive species specialists at Lake Powell to arrange an inspection of your boat before you leave the reservoir.

Brown Marmorated Stink Bug
Utah State University Extension. Cooperative Agricultural Pest Survey.
Brown marmorated stink bug was first found in Utah in 2012 (in Salt Lake County) and has since also been found in Utah County. The Utah CAPS team has placed several BMSB traps throughout Utah. Traps have been placed in residential settings, and in commercial orchards and corn fields. If you are a grower or a homeowner and are interested in having a trap placed in your field/garden, please contact Lori Spears

Africanized Honey Bee in Utah
Utah Department of Agriculture and Food.
Since 2009 the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food (UDAF) has tracked the movement of Africanized honeybees (AHB) in the State of Utah. UDAF has set traps, monitored feral colonies and tested suspected managed honeybees.

Glen Canyon Mussel Update
DOI. NPS. Glen Canyon National Recreation Area.
Quagga mussel larvae, or veligers, were first confirmed in Lake Powell in late 2012 after routine water monitoring tests discovered mussel DNA in water samples taken from the vicinity of Antelope Point and the Glen Canyon Dam. As of early 2016, thousands of adult quagga mussels have been found in Lake Powell, attached to canyon walls, the Glen Canyon Dam, boats, and other underwater structures, especially in the southern portions of the lake. It is crucial to keep the mussels from moving from Lake Powell to other lakes and rivers. Utah and Arizona state laws require you to clean, drain, and dry your boat when leaving Lake Powell using self-decontamination procedures..
