    By From Vermont -do not use email provided April 7, 2009 – 2:57 pmThe sad thing about the thaert caused by this invasive species is that ducks and other water loving creatures will not be buying these waders, will be in the river or stream, might pick up that 1 dangerous cell on their feet, feathers or bill, and fly upstream, or to another watershed in their migration, or just over the mountain, and there in the water they will land, and it is there that they will also leave that 1 cell.There has to be a way to defeat this cell by cell. We can do our part to prevent the spread. However, nature by itself has too many ways to assist in the transfer of that single cell.I will buy the new waders, I already practice all the rules, however, the local waterfowl and many of the locals who are the worm and bait folks, those who are eating fish because they have no money and can not afford any new waders, well they all have not yet gotten this message about this problem.
