    They did but there’s a lake right next to it that’s had it for 2 yrs. I guess from either delta or the river jumping the levee flooded that lake into it

    Well that isn’t good. Wham will be next then. No one inspects their trailers for that stuff

    Some good 30 below degree weather would help slow it down.

    The Devil Weed has shut us down too. It is a problem that ain’t going away. Folks that don’t have it (yet) just don’t understand. The state is doing very little to control it.

    Not as much as you would think. The problem is that it gets so thick it insulates itself. It will take weather cold enough to freeze the lake for a few days to actually make a difference. In NW La 20 yrs ago it was not uncommon to see the lakes frozen 2in at least every other yr. Problem is it hasn’t happen in 20 yrs.

    It appears I am surrounded by experts.
    Two kinds of freshwater in this state. The ones with invasive grass and the ones that are about to have it. Maybe we need a non profit organization formed just to combat non native species because what is available at this time isn’t winning any battles.

    I’m surprised it hasn’t already taken over Wham. Did they have some issue on Wham a few yrs ago that was a problem for hunters? Do they spray or drain the lake?

    It is my understanding that a few yrs ago a fee was put on trailer tags that was to be used toward addressing the Salvinia problem. I’m sure if true it found it’s way into pocket of those responsible for addressing problem.
