Zebra mussels popping up in the thousands on Green Lake

SPICER - The zebra mussel invasion is full-blown on Green Lake. 

At 4 Seasons Lawn & Beach Service, owner Chris Pientka said that he first saw the razor sharp vagabonds four years ago and now they show up "by the thousands" on water-related equipment like boat lifts and docks.

Pientka and the other permitted Lake Service Providers on the lake are doing what they can to prevent the spread to other county lakes.

That includes high-pressure hosing with hot water before returning stored equipment to the lakeside owner.
